We were honored to sing in Cimarron Opera’s Festival of Spirituals. Our roadie didn’t start recording on time, so poor lil’ sis lost most of her solo lines. And, she is a floating head above a sea of stands from that angle. Hey, what can you do? 🙂
Like many, I took a renewed interest in this immortal Paul Simon song when Disturbed released its cover. Hello darkness, my old friend…
Back in ’68-’69, Mary Hopkin’s version of this song—produced by Paul McCartney—was nominated for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance (Grammy) and reached #2 on the charts, just below Hey Jude. Those were the days, my friend! 🙂
This beautiful song was written by John Denver for his wife Annie during the heartbreak of separation and, ultimately, divorce. May our hardest journeys bring out our best.
A classic by Hedy West.
