I love India Arie's music and lyrics (pure poetry) and this particular song of hers has been in my head for months now so I thought I'd sing it my way as an homage to this awesome songwriter and performer. Hopefully, some of you won't know her music and will discover her through hearing this. smiley

I had an accompaniment (hand percussion of a sort - very intriguing) but it didn't feel as good as the a cappella version in terms of timing so I took it out.

Hope you all like it!

So good to see/hear you uploading. You already know you were greatly missed around these parts. smiley Mind blowing crafting/performance. The overdubbing/layering of your vocals is mesmerizing. Just one beautiful layer after another.

Thanks for sharing this gem with us, supremely well done.

Thanks so much Chris! I have been watching The Sing Off the past few weeks (all a Capella all of the time) and it's been like going to school. I had been working on this song and stuck for a while till suddenly today It all came together without question. I love it when hearing myself gives me chills like I'm listening to someone else.

Thanks for your comments and support Omar. I really appreciate both.

Wow, that chorus really hits home. Used to listen to this song quite a bit, thanks for reminding me of it smiley You sound like Cassandra Wilson, who happens to be my favourite female vocalist, so all the better for that

@Homebrand - Thank you for such wonderful comments... I adore and admire Cassandra Wilson's voice and work so I consider any comparison to her as high praise. And I'm glad to know someone who knows this song well likes something I've done with it.
