On Thursday morning, I awoke to the familiar waterdroplet sound of a skype chat message and it was from Igor - he said he'd been waiting for me to get online and sounded really excited. I was, too, because I'd been asking him to do something for me to sing to and I figured, wow, this is it! And indeed it was - though it was nothing like what I expected! It is a song most of us have heard all of our lives, Amazing Grace. But, as some of you know, I'm not a religious person and don't like to sing religious songs as a rule... suddenly, an idea was born in me, an offshoot of all of the wonderful things which have been happening in my life lately because of music. And this song is the result. It is sung, more or less, to the tune of Amazing Grace but the lyrics are all mine, written and sung from the heart the day Igor sent me the music. He was away on a job and only got back this morning (my time)... he loved where I went with this (I'd been a little nervous he wouldn't like it!) and asked for my vocals. He did the mix and it's gorgeous. Thanks so much Igor, for yet another amazing collab. We hope that you will all hear in this song what suits you most. Please have a look at the lyrics when you get a chance. smiley

Lordy! Impressive work, carla and igor! The voice, the voice. The organ too, the drum a tad less (but hey what can you expect on a serious rendition of amazing grace). But the voice and the organ....yum yum...Original and strong collab. Love, Marc
