BABA YETU

“Our Father”

I’m so happy I found this song.

I had never heard about it until an episode of America’s Got Talent Show where ‘Angel City Chorale‘ performed a cover.

What an amazing song!

Here’s Alex Boye’s version.

Baba Yetu” (Swahili: “Our Father“) is the theme song for the 2005 video game, Civilization IV. It was composed by Christopher Tin, and performed by Ron Ragin and the Stanford Talisman.

For its re-release in Tin’s debut album Calling All Dawns, it was performed by the Soweto Gospel Choir. The song, when rereleased, became the first piece of video game music to be nominated and win a Grammy Award.

This message is why Boyé believes he personally felt a deep connection to this particular song

“When my family found out I joined the church at the age of 16, I was kicked out of my house. That night, I walked the streets of London in tears clinging to the Book of Mormon like my life depended on it. It was the only thing constant left in my life,” Boyé said. “Whilst walking the streets homeless, I would recite the Lord’s Prayer and it became a source of deep comfort to me.”

‘Día De Los Muertos’

~DAY OF THE DEAD~

The Day of the Dead (Día de Muertos) is a Mexican holiday celebrated throughout Mexico, in particular the Central and South regions, and by people of Mexican heritage elsewhere.

The multi-day holiday focuses on gatherings of family and friends to pray for and remember friends and family members who have died, and help support their spiritual journey.

In 2008, the tradition was inscribed in the Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO.

Playing for Change …. 💕🎼 ‘The Moon’ …. Taimane 🎼💕 Live Outside …. “!!

The Moon … Taimane

Just what I need at this moment in time.

Soothing, calming, inspiring music.

I just discovered Taimane.

Enjoy this performance.

Filmed at the beautiful Kualoa Ranch in Oah’u, Hawai’i, this Live Outside video features Taimane performing her original composition, “The Moon,” alongside Windy Weather (violin) and Jasmine ‘Jazzy’ Skurtu (guitar).

“Being born and raised in Hawai’i, it’s hard not to be inspired by the nature around me,” shares Taimane.

“This song came to me one night when I was laying in my backyard with my dog, looking up at the moon wondering what she must be feeling. I did my best to personify her essence, who she is, and this song arose.”

Let this enchanting song carry you to the moon and beyond with a heart full of peace.

Tainm

 Taimane translates to diamond from Samoan and perfectly reflects the different facets of her nature Ukulele Dance CD music

Whether delicately finger-picking through Bach or radically ripping through Led Zeppelin, Taimane has the ability to morph genres – from classical to rock to flamenco – and stretch her instrument far beyond the familiar melodies of Hawai`i, where she grew up. In addition to performing her own distinctive versions of well-known pieces, Taimane weaves in original compositions that are as far ranging as her musical tastes Ukulele Dance buy CD music.

Her breakout CD, Ukulele Dance features Bach’s ‘Tocatta‘, Lalo Schifrin’s ‘Mission Impossible Theme‘, and pieces she wrote for the planet Neptune and the Moon, as part of her series on the solar system. With the fierceness of a rocker, the grace of a dancer, and the pageantry of a performance artist, Taimane and her music are wowing ever-larger audiences. She lights up rooms wherever she goes, sparkling like the diamond that she is.

YET ANOTHER ‘HALLELUJAH’ COVER

CHILL FACTOR

Music for the Soul

As I’ve said before, for some unknown reason, covers of this song keep ‘popping up’ in my feed.

This song soothes my raw feelings. It calms me, it centers me.

Here’s another one.

This song has attained a new meaning in my personal musical library.

It reminds me of so much …

Hope you enjoy this one!

~Millions Of People Are Floored When Bon Jovi Sings “Hallelujah”~

Back in 2007, Bon Jovi performed a stripped-down rendition of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” – and it’s been seen by more than 43 million people ever since!

He sings it with such emotion, it’s hard not to tear up and press repeat over and over and over again.

It seems every performer likes to put their own spin on the classic song. Bon Jovi’s version is more raw but just as compelling.

It doesn’t hurt that the song and its lyrics are pure genius.

It’s Friday, the last day of another crazy week.

Here’s hoping that the weekend is somewhat slow.

And what better way than with music and dance?
