i really love hearing opinions about people’s music choices.
many of us have serious stories that involve an artist we love.
for some of us,
we don’t get why someone else would like a “non-singer”,
but that artist’s songs helped them through hard times.
that anita bakers discussion made me think of how impactful music is.
out of the 4 old school divas above,
if you could pick one of these songs…
MARIAH – “HERO”
WHITNEY – “YOU GIVE GOOD LOVE”
ANITA – “SWEET LOVE”
TONI – “UNBREAK MY HEART”
… whose song made the most impact on you?
as much as i heard whitney as a kid in barbados,
“hero” from mariah impacted me the most.
the words from that song are so powerful:
When you face the world alone
No one reaches out a hand
For you to hold
You can find love
If you search within yourself
And that emptiness you felt
i love the other songs when i started to want love or experience heartbreak,
but “hero” is the one that got me.
