May You Never Be Alone #Musical Monday

The song I’m singing today is one I featured here last year, but it’s worth an encore performance. According to the artist’s website, Susan Boyle, the Scottish singer whom I’ve heard sing this song, has won fans on both sides of the globe since her performance on Britain’s Got Talent eleven years ago. She has sold over 25 million albums, produced 250 audio streams, and received over 650 million YouTube hits. Among her other accomplishments are a debut acting role in Christmas Candle, a cameo role in Zoolander 2, and three television documentaries. You can learn more about her here.

When I first heard “May You Never Be Alone” a year ago, it was as if my late husband were singing it to me, reassuring me that he was nearby and that we would be reunited. Now, more than ever, this song resonates, since many of us will not be spending the holidays with loved ones in an attempt to keep the coronavirus from spreading. I hope my rendition warms your heart and gives you hope.

New! The Red Dress

Copyright July 2019 by DLD Books

Front cover contains: young, dark-haired woman in red dress holding flowers

When Eve went to her high school senior prom, she wore a red dress that her mother had made for her. That night, after dancing with the boy of her dreams, she caught him in the act with her best friend. Months later, Eve, a freshman in college, is bullied into giving the dress to her roommate. After her mother finds out, their relationship is never the same again.

Twenty-five years later, Eve, a bestselling author, is happily married with three children. Although her mother suffers from dementia, she still remembers, and Eve still harbors the guilt for giving the dress away. When she receives a Facebook friend request from her old college roommate and an invitation to her twenty-five-year high school class reunion, then meets her former best friend by chance, she must confront the past in order to face the future.

Saturday Song: Bridge Over Troubled Water by Simon and Garfunkel

When I was eight years old, I got an eight-track player for Christmas, along with a few tapes of course. One of these was Simon and Garfunkel’s album Bridge Over Troubled Water which contains such memorable songs as “El Condor Pasa,” “The Boxer,” and “Sicilia.” Here’s the title track from that album. Have a great day.
