So tonight I've had a chance to read through your kind comments, and wonderful suggestions for blog topics, (I thank you... will be using those suggestions in further blog posts!) as I was reading through previous posts I came across the sweetest comment from this lovely gal Catherine... anywho she had mentioned that she had done a cover of my song "Change" and asked me if I could watch it on YouTube... so of course I went and watched, and before I knew it I had stumbled across a slew of youtube videos displaying people performing covers of my own original songs... I have to say it is kind of a trip, and yet an honor to see and hear people singing my tunes, especially in their own interpretation, I really enjoyed watching them and then I thought to myself, looks like I've found tonight's blog post...
So I was thinking I would post a handful of the videos that I found. Interestingly, "Hold Up My Heart" seems to be the most popular to cover... funny, I just mentioned on my blog a few nights ago that it was my favorite song from "High Hopes & Heartbreak" !
May I ask that if you wish to comment on the videos that you do so with kindness and respect. Speaking from experience, It takes a great deal of courage to let your voice be heard, to perform and put it out there for people to hear and often times take the risk of being criticized or judged... especially in this day and age where the internet allows anyone and everyone the platform to express their opinions from the most adoring to the most hateful. First thing I learned on idol was to resist the temptation to "google" my own name, or read what everyone had to say about me. I did it one time and that was all I needed to learn my lesson. Anyways, as usual I am going off on another tangent, perhaps that topic is another blog post at another time!
Enjoy the cute vids:
PS- Happy Birthday to Randy Jackson... seriously the nicest.
