MUSIC! - Anita Baker Tribute: Dionne Farris and Goapele
Goapele was a nice start to the song "Same Ole Song" with her beautiful happy smiling self. She made the song shine. I loved her colorful dress too! Also, I have to give mad props to the braided hair. Rockin' a beautiful ethnic look for Anita. As you already know or might have figured out, I loved this tribute from beginning to end ("365 days of the year..." lol, couldn't resist), Goapele and Dionne was a nice finishing touch to the whole thing to remember.
Now, Goapele was cool and all, but I HAVE TO SAY...
DIONNE FARRIS - she ROCKS! Ya know, I still have her 90's single "I Know", sitting on my CD shelf. This woman has some PIPES on her. I've always been a fan of soulful ability to make me feel what she is singing. The song "Hopeless" is icing on a cake. This makes her rightful choice to take part in singing a tribute song to Anita. She sang the finale part of "Same Ole Love", and she blew it out the water!I couldn't find the actual video contain only the footage of Dionne and Goapele's performance, BUT I found some exclusive footage from video blog about Dionne's musical journey up until the moment. I enjoyed it very much...it's something I would do myself. Video tape every waking step of the privilege opportunity.
DIDJA WATCH IT? WASN'T IT COOL?
Now, pheeeew! I am finally DONE with the Anita Tribute! On to writing about other exciting things in my life that I enjoy and admire. Thanks for bearing with me. I will try not to drag on about something like that ever again. I won't promise. I never make a promise I can't keep.
