I think that one of the most wonderful gifts God gave to humans is music. So many styles, so many options, so many instruments… I love it. I love that no matter how many different artists I can discover, I can always discover more. Or rediscover. I recently “rediscovered” Eva Cassidy, whom I’ve liked since the first time I heard Songbird(who didn’t?). I kind of forgot about her for a little while though, until last week. I don’t know what made me type her name into the Youtube search box, but I’m so glad I did. Because she was a spectacular singer and a spectacular lady. The songs she sings, and the way she sings, just makes me want to cry every time I hear them. I bought a few on iTunes last week:
1. Know You By Heart – this is my favourite song that she sings, even over Songbird.
2. Over the Rainbow – seriously amazing.
5. You Take My Breath Away – couldn’t actually buy this one on iTunes but it is on Youtube. A wonderful friend of mine sang it at her wedding and had everyone sobbing(or maybe that was just me… I can be very emotional)
Just do yourself a favour and go listen to these songs! Make sure you have some kleenex handy…
