“We are all equal in the fact that we are all different. We are all the same in the fact that we will never be the same. We are united by the reality that all colors and all cultures are distinct & individual. We are harmonious in the reality that we are all held to this earth by the same gravity. We don’t share blood, but we share the air that keeps us alive. I will not blind myself and say that my black brother is not different from me. I will not blind myself and say that my brown sister is not different from me. But my black brother is he as much as I am me. But my brown sister is she as much as I am me.”
“IOTD” is image of the day, a concept I came up with. I teach visual meditative therapy – or in easy terms – a mini mental holiday. For some people it is very difficult for them to get their image right. I post an image a day for people to use in their mini mental vacay. Some are serious, some are silly, and some are just beautiful!”
While you’re waiting for Adele‘s massive world tour to come to your neck of the woods, wile away the hours listening to this incredible cover of some of her greatest hits, posted on Facebook by Irish website, Her.
In the video, Irish singer Glenn Murphy lends his rich tenor to songs like “Hello” and “Someone Like You,” accompanied by Ronan Scolard who not only plays the melodies on the piano, but also harmonizes on the songs. The result is a beautiful, stripped down medley of some of Adele’s best songs, which would undoubtedly make the singer proud.
Since Adele is basically the Ellen of the music world, it probably won’t be too long until these two gents are invited on stage with her to perform.

I received my copy in the mail yesterday. And I ordered the “Deluxe CD” which has several other duets she’s done before. My treat …. Her voice continues to be impeccable. The choice of songs and partners is excellent.
I was particularly touched by the one with her son Jason Gould.
In her own words:
“Hearing the news that “Partners” entered the charts at #1 was an overwhelming feeling of joy!!
Being told that I’ve had #1 albums in six consecutive decades makes me feel truly blessed and grateful to have such loyal fans. I feel you rooting for me and I so appreciate all of your energy and support.
It’s especially sweet since I get to share this moment with my wonderfully talented partners who I had the pleasure of singing with: Michael Bublé, Stevie Wonder, John Mayer, Babyface, Billy Joel, Blake Shelton, Lionel Richie, Andrea Bocelli, John Legend, Josh Groban, my beloved son Jason Gould…and last but not least, Elvis Presley…forever The King!
Finally, thank you to Rob Stringer and my Columbia Records family, my manager Marty Erlichman, my creative team on this project – Kenny Edmonds, Walter Afanasieff, Dave Reitzas, Bill Ross, and Jay Landers…and Ken Sunshine for getting the word out… we did it guys!!
With lots of love, Barbra“
