~NEITHER NEED AN INTRODUCTION BUT HERE IT IS~
Jacqueline Marie “Jackie” Evancho ( born April 9, 2000) is an American classical crossover singer who gained wide recognition at an early age and, since 2009, has issued five albums, including a platinum and gold album and three Billboard 200 top 10 debuts.
Between 2008 and 2010, Evancho entered several talent competitions; made singing appearances, mostly in Pennsylvania (including singing the U.S. national anthem at a Pittsburgh Pirates baseball game); issued an independent album, Prelude to a Dream; and attracted interest on YouTube. Evancho impressed composers Tim Janis and David Foster, each of whom included her in his concerts beginning in 2009. Later in 2010, at the age of ten, she gained wider popularity with her performances in the fifth season of the America’s Got Talent competition, finishing in second place.
Barbra Joan Streisand (born April 24, 1942) is an American singer-songwriter, author, actress, film producer, and director. She has won two Academy Awards, eight Grammy Awards, five Emmy Awards including one Daytime Emmy, a Special Tony Award, an American Film Institute award, a Kennedy Center Honors award, a Peabody Award, and is amongst twelve entertainers who have won an Oscar, Emmy, Grammy, and Tony Award.
She is one of the best selling female artists of all time, with more than 71.5 million albums in the United States and 245 million records sold worldwide. She is the best-selling female artist on the Recording Industry Association of America‘s (RIAA) Top Selling Album Artists list, the only female recording artist in the top ten, and the only artist outside of the rock and roll genre.
I have always loved this song. My favorite rendition was the Barbra Streisand one until this duet came along.
I have this vision of driving along a particular road near a town I once lived in.
Picture this: it’s night time and the road is dark. It’s also somewhat deserted because it’s late. It’s only a two lane road and there’s thick vegetation and majestic trees on the shoulders. There’s a incline, a hill on the road. This gives you the impression that you are climbing and climbing, going towards the light.
As the songs crescendo is reach, you find yourself on the highest top of the road and you see it …. the light …. and the place.
Keep in mind … I’ve been looking for a “place” like this all my life. A place where I can be myself. A place where there’s a new way of living.
~Someday, somehow ….. A time and place for us~
We’ll find a new way of living,
We’ll find a way of forgiving
Somewhere . . .
There’s a place for us,
A time and place for us.
Hold my hand and we’re halfway there.
Hold my hand and I’ll take you there
Somewhere …. “

Voice of Lesbian Senior ….. dreaming of a place for us. Back then is was difficult to find one!!
That was nothing short of spectacular.
Hi there!! TY …. Had you heard Jackie b4? I’ve always thought she has such an ” adult” voice for that little body. Caught a glimpse of a more recent pic & she seems to be growing up very nicely. Have to look for more info about her. Hugs ….
Yes, I have heard her several times. She does have a very adult voice. I hope they don’t ruin her.
I hope so too. I read somewhere, a while back, that she had quite the functional family!
Have a good day today!!
I am truly going to try. Catch up reading do some writing. Do some house cleaning. Maybe even publish today, I am so far behind!!!
You have a good day.
