Stay tuned every Thursday and everyday because I will be posting up at 6 pm and 7 pm central! Monday through Friday and probably on the weekend stay tuned! 

 

Leona Lewis- Bleeding Love

Closed off from love, I didn’t need the pain
Once or twice was enough, but it was all in vain
Time starts to pass, before you know it, you’re frozen
But something happened, for the very first time with you
My heart melts into the ground, found something true
And everyone’s looking round, thinking I’m going crazy
But I don’t care what they say
I’m in love with you
They try to pull me away, but they don’t know the truth
My heart’s crippled by the vein, that I keep on closing
You cut me open and I
Keep bleeding, keep, keep bleeding love
I keep bleeding, I keep, keep bleeding love
Keep bleeding, keep, keep bleeding love
You cut me open
Trying hard not to hear, but they talk so loud
Their piercing sounds fill my ears, try to fill me with doubt
Yet I know that the goal, is to keep me from falling
But nothings greater, than the rush that comes with your embrace
And in this world of loneliness, I see your face
Yet everyone around me, thinks that I’m going crazy, maybe, maybe
But I don’t care what they say
I’m in love with you
They try to pull me away, but they don’t know the truth
My heart’s crippled by the vein, that I keep on closing
You cut me open and I
Keep bleeding, keep, keep bleeding love
I keep bleeding, I keep, keep bleeding love
Keep bleeding, keep, keep bleeding love
You cut me open
And it’s draining all of me
Oh they find it hard to believe
I’ll be wearing these scars, for everyone to see
I don’t care what they say, I’m in love with you
They try to pull me away, but they don’t know the truth
My heart’s crippled by the vein, that I keep on closing
You cut me open and I
Keep bleeding, keep, keep bleeding love
I keep bleeding, I keep, keep bleeding love
Keep bleeding, keep, keep bleeding love
Oh, you cut me open and I
Keep bleeding, keep, keep bleeding love
I keep bleeding, I keep, keep bleeding love
Keep bleeding, keep, keep bleeding love
Oh, you cut me open and I
Keep bleeding, keep, keep bleeding love

Train On a Track- Kelly Roland

Starting today I will be doing Throwback Thursday: ALL ABOUT MUSIC! So I will start with something like this:

Music of today= TRASH!

I want to take the road back to memory lane, and remember of the good music we had back then. That type of music where you can just roll your car window down, feeling the breeze, in your room during any 4 seasons, where every word meant something, when you can actually relate, that type of music that will put you in a certain mood, the one that will make you want to clean, or slow/speed up on that accelerator of the car. Better yet, that type of music when CDs were the only way we could listen with those A-tracks, cassettes, or even put on the radio and every time that EXACT song that we liked came on just in time. You remember those days? Shoot, I remember when I had to download my songs with limewire, and I would get a virus on my computer lol!

One thing I would remember about every old song is the feeling that I would get when I would listen to it. Till this day if I hear an old song I can still remember even the smell of the place that I would be in, and especially that feeling that creeps up slowly within you. That feeling that would just make you take a deep breath, have chills, make you cry, or even laugh. I catch myself tearing up, not because I miss those days, but because I am amazed at how far I have come. Also, because each song reminds me of something when I thought I would never make it, but HEYYY look at me now! lol! THOSE SONGS! So with all of this being said, let me take you back to one of my favorite songs back in the day by Kelly Rowland.

Down below the video, I will post up the lyrics for you to follow along, and also this will be my new thing every Thursday. Today was just an introduction so let’s start! Sit back, relax, and just listen. If you used to love this song, forgot about it, and you are barely remembering this melody…..you’re welcome. I hope that this #TBT songs help you see that no matter what song made you feel a certain way…you came through at the end. For all of you young folks THIS…IS…MUSIC.

Kelly Rowland- Train On A Track

I wonder
If he knows I been watching him
And I wonder
If he knows I can feel him
and I wonder
In my dreams when I’m sleeping, and I’m keeping him close to me
I’m thinking
He’s the thunder, I’m the lightning
And I’m thinking
Maybe we can come together
And I’m thinking
We can bring the rain with a lovely breeze with such harmony
Like a train on a track like spokes inside a wheel
Involuntary motion like rolling downhill
And there’s no way to stop it
It’s a natural thing like sunrise and dusk
Snowflakes, waterfalls same thing like us
And there’s no way to stop it
Once you fall in love
I’m glowing
And overflow of happy laughter
I’m growing
Closer to you more than ever
I’m blowing
Daffodils and kisses, baby breaths, and roses gently
Touching noses
I’m sailing
Without a destination
I’m sailing
Explore uncharted places
I’m exhaling
No more lonely seasons, I’m underwater breathing
Drowning in the sea of love
Like a train on a track like spokes inside a wheel
Involuntary motion like rolling downhill
And there’s no way to stop it
It’s a natural thing like sunrise and dusk
Snowflakes, waterfalls same thing like us
And there’s no way to stop it
Once you fall in love
I heard a song bird, a seed came through the earth
Strangers holding hands, a crowd cheering in the stands
I’ve already seen all the evidence
It’s obvious love’s in the air again
Saw dark clouds blow, chased by rainbows
Saw two roses bloom just like me and you
Caught up in the magic I can’t pretend
It’s obvious love’s in the air again
There’s no way to stop it
Boy you and I
Are LUV in love you see
That you and I, are LUV in love
There’s no way to stop it, no way
Boy you and I
Are LUV in love you see
That you and I, are LUV in love
Like a train on a track like spokes inside a wheel
Involuntary motion like rolling downhill
And there’s no way to stop it
It’s a natural thing like sunrise and dusk
Snowflakes, waterfalls same thing like us
And there’s no way to stop it
Once you fall in love
Love ya’ll. God bless. Peace.

Jonas Brothers

My childhood days are screaming right now……literally with every single right…..because….ugh…I am going to stop and just watch this…………….

 

They are BACK!!! Well to be honest they are brothers so this band never really “broke up”, but trust me all the other boy bands have LEFT THE CHAT! I am sooo exctied and hyped about this! I have been having this song on repeat, and what I loved most is that all of them are in this video with their significant other!!!!! I just can’t with this amazing video! If you want the lyrics they are the following:: 

“Sucker”

We go together
Better than birds of a feather, you and me
We change the weather, yeah
I’m feeling heat in December when you ’round me

I’ve been dancin’ on top of cars
And stumblin’ out of bars
I follow you through the dark
Can’t get enough
You’re the medicine and the pain
The tattoo inside my brain
And baby, you know it’s obvious

I’m a sucker for you
Say the word and I’ll go anywhere blindly
I’m a sucker for you, yeah
Any road you take you know that you’ll find me

I’m a sucker for all the subliminal things
No one knows about you (About you)
About you (About you)
And you’re making the typical me
Break my typical rules
It’s true, I’m a sucker for you

Yeah
Don’t complicate it, yeah
‘Cause I know you and you know everything about me
I can’t remember
All of the nights I don’t remember when you’re ’round me

I’ve been dancin’ on top of cars
And stumblin’ out of bars
I follow you through the dark
Can’t get enough
You’re the medicine and the pain
The tattoo inside my brain
And baby, you know it’s obvious

I’m a sucker for you
Say the word and I’ll go anywhere blindly
I’m a sucker for you, ooh yeah
Any road you take you know that you’ll find me

I’m a sucker for all the subliminal things
No one knows about you (About you)
About you (About you)
And you’re making the typical me
Break my typical rules
It’s true, I’m a sucker for you

Yeah
(I’m a sucker for you)

I’ve been dancin’ on top of cars
And stumblin’ out of bars
I follow you through the dark
Can’t get enough
You’re the medicine and the pain
The tattoo inside my brain
And baby, you know it’s obvious

I’m a sucker for you
Say the word and I’ll go anywhere blindly
I’m a sucker for you, ooh yeah
Any road you take you know that you’ll find me

I’m a sucker for all the subliminal things
No one knows about you (About you)
About you (About you)
And you’re making the typical me
Break my typical rules
It’s true, I’m a sucker for you
I’m a sucker for you

That is all for today, and let me know what you think! Are you excited for them to release this new song? I hear a concert coming and it is going to be LIT! *CueCampRock3* ha! 

Love ya’ll. God bless. Peace. signature

Tori Kelly is the reason as to why I want to try to put my music out there! So much class, REAL TALENT, and most of all her love for God is just amazing to see!

This reminds me of a quote from one of her songs and literally it is SPOT ON!

Tori Kelly- Change Your Mind

Okay…Okay…Okay…This took me a while to actually sit down and write because again….SHE DID IT!!!!! SHE DID THIS!!!!!! COME THROUGH TORI!!! Here is the new song of Tori Kelly called Change Your Mind. 

 

Before I give out the lyrics to you, I am giving my opinion of this song which just blew me away. This song talks about her husband and how she had to convince her dad that he is the one. Lord I started crying at the end of this song because you can literally hear how she wanted to break into tears at the end. She put all her heart in this song still keeping it gospel, but merging it with pop music. If anyone can do this it’s Tori! I am working on a cover for this song! I can’t wait for you all to hear this, and also before I forget Tori is going on tour AGAIN! If you want to see her live be sure to check out her website which is www.torikellymusic.com for more information. Here are the lyrics to the song, and I hope you all are having a great day. 

Tori Kelly- Change Your Mind Lyrics

He came to me like a song
Like one I knew all along
And daddy he got a hold on me
I know you think that it’s wrong
But he grew on me like a rose (Hmm)
The sweetest I’ve ever known (Hmm)
I swear that he got a hold on me (Hmm)
And now I can’t let him go (Hmm)

No one ever said it was easy
And I love him
You gotta believe me
No, it don’t seem right
But I’ll change your
Mind, mind

Trust in me
I’ma need your blessing
Oh, I love him
I’m confessing
If it takes my life
I’ma change your mind

He spoke to me like the rain (Hmm)
I knew that I would have to see him again (Hmm)
And as he poured out his heart on me (Hmm)
I was a moth to a flame (Hmm)

No one ever said it was easy
And I love him
You gotta believe me
No, it don’t seem right
But I’ll change your
Mind, mind

Trust in me
I’ma need your blessing
Oh, I love him
I’m confessing
If it takes my life
I’ma change your mind

Oh, oh, ohh
Oh ohhh
On, no, no, no
I’ma change your mind

You look at me like the sun
And I can see that your mind’s made up
But daddy he got a hold of me
I swear that he is the one

 

Love ya’ll. God bless. Peace.

Singing for beginners

When it comes to music I AM YOUR GIRL! Here I will teach you a few methods that I used to do when I first started to sing. Now keep in mind I am a gospel singer, and I have been singing since the age of 2 years old because half of my family is involved in the music community. This takes time, practice, patience, and so much love! So if you love music and would like to know how to start singing here are some tips for you to improve.

1. Books– Don’t get it twisted I only mentioned the word books, but it is not for you to read them. Lay on the floor, put some books on your abdomen, and sing from “DO” to “DO”. For example, do, re, mi, fa, sol, la, ti, do and check if the books are going at the same rhythm as you are singing it. 

2. Do NOT force your throat– Try to sing naturally as if you are just playing around. If you force your throat to sing then you are NOT doing it correctly because it needs to flow naturally from your abdomen. 

3. Nasal– If you are singing nasally then correct it because that is not only annoying, but also it is not a proper way of singing. When you sing nasal you are forcing so much notes into you that you won’t be able to even catch your breath. 

4. Hot drinks– By this I mean tea and warm water! If you are barely starting and learning how to sing then try to avoid cold beverages as well as drinks that have so much sugar. You need to try to drink tea with water so your throat can be ready for when you sing a tune.

5. Copy– When the music starts do you just dance, but not sing? Pick your favorite artist and try to mimic their voice, and try to rest in between a few lyrics so you can go at it again. The more you sing along with the artist the better your voice will be able to be tuned to the song. 

6. Tune your voice– Besides singing from “DO” to “DO” there are other ways to practice in order to be able how to sing. I will leave a link down below so you can check out what I mean by this! 

7. Relax– Try to relax your body when you are learning how to sing because the more tense you are then the more you won’t be able to accomplish anything. Singing takes all of your body to be able to sing out a tune.

8. Riffs & Runs– The famous thing that all of us singers do! Have you heard how Tori Kelly does her riffs? Well, that comes in with practicing along with a musical instrument. I do riffs in my songs, and they come out neat. Try to concentrate on the tune you want to riff, start out slow (very slow), pick it up a notch, and once you are able to do it slowly then put a little speed into it! 

9. Splurge– I would say try to buy a small piano (it can even be a kids piano), and also get a microphone which there are some cheap ones in amazon. You need to really hear your voice, and along with the instrument you will be able to fix your tunes. Besides the actual song from an artist, you need to sing every note that the piano might give you. Basically it is within each key! 

10. Do your own thing– There are always trainers on YouTube for free, but be aware each method they give out is different! Some may work on stuff that you do not even need so my advice is to research what technique is best for you ONCE you have learned how to sing.

11. Niche– Find your niche in the music community! Remember that the ones who can rap cannot sing, others that do r&b cannot do country, and the list goes on so try to find your style in the music world. Once you do that then you will be able to start off successfully into your singing abilities. 

Example #1: 

 

Example #2:

 

If this has helped you out in anyway let me know, and I will also put up a cover of mine to show you guys how I sing. I can’t wait to get back into YouTube and just be myself by putting up my content. If you love to sing then give it a go, be yourself, and have fun! 

Love ya’ll. God bless. Peace.

Bog Down in The Valley-O Irish Song

So it is 2019 and I barley found out where my old favorite song from Barney came out. Do you remember the Green Grass Grows All Around? Well, I found the song that I have a strong feeling in which the creators of Barney got inspired lol! I want to share with ya’ll the video I saw, which is so cool, and also I will post the lyrics on the bottom. Now I know EXACTLY what I will be singing this year because it is pretty darn catchy lol! 

 

Bog Down in The Valley-O

Traditional Song

(Chorus)
O-ro the rattlin’ bog, 
The bog down in the valley-o
O-ro the rattlin’ bog, 
The bog down in the valley-o

And in that bog there was a tree, 
A rare tree, a rattlin’ tree
With the tree in the bog
And the bog down in the valley-o.

(Chorus)

Now on that tree there was a limb, 
A rare limb, a rattlin’ limb
With the limb on the tree 
And the tree in the bog
And the bog down in the valley-o.

(Chorus)

Now on that limb there was a branch, 
A rare branch, a rattlin’ branch
With the branch on the limb 
And the limb on the tree 
And the tree in the bog
And the bog down in the valley-o.

(Chorus)

Now on that branch there was a twig, 
A rare twig, a rattlin’ twig
With the twig on the branch,
And the branch on the limb 
And the limb on the tree 
And the tree in the bog
And the bog down in the valley-o.

(Chorus)

Now on that twig there was a nest, 
A rare nest, a rattlin’ nest
With the nest on the twig,
And the twig on the branch,
And the branch on the limb 
And the limb on the tree 
And the tree in the bog
And the bog down in the valley-o.

(Chorus)

Now in that nest there was an egg, 
A rare egg, a rattlin’ egg,
With the egg in the nest,
And the nest on the twig,
And the twig on the branch,
And the branch on the limb 
And the limb on the tree 
And the tree in the bog
And the bog down in the valley-o.

(Chorus)

Now in that egg there was a bird, 
A rare bird, a rattlin’ bird
With the bird in the egg,
And the egg in the nest,
And the nest on the twig,
And the twig on the branch,
And the branch on the limb 
And the limb on the tree 
And the tree in the bog
And the bog down in the valley-o.

(Chorus)

Now on that bird there was a feather, 
A rare feather, a rattlin’ feather,
With the feather on the bird,
And the bird in the egg,
And the egg in the nest,
And the nest on the twig,
And the twig on the branch,
And the branch on the limb 
And the limb on the tree 
And the tree in the bog
And the bog down in the valley-o.

(Chorus)

Now on that feather there was a flea, 
A rare flea, a rattlin’ flea 
With the flea on the feather,
And the feather on the bird,
And the bird in the egg,
And the egg in the nest,
And the nest on the twig,
And the twig on the branch,
And the branch on the limb 
And the limb on the tree 
And the tree in the bog
And the bog down in the valley-o.

(Chorus)

 

I hope you all enjoy it and to all my Irish people you ROCK!!!!! I will sing this on my YouTube totally love it! I hope you have an amazing day or night depending on where you are at. 

God bless, Love ya’ll. Peace.
