Just Plain Ole Great Music! II

I was watching the Trumpet Awards 2019 Tribute to Aretha Franklin a few days ago and there was on stage a pretty, no,……… gorgeous young singer with everything right. It was my first time seeing her. Singing a song with a voice so clear, beautiful head of hair, yellow pants, strumming her guitar like a seasoned pro, and I fell in love without even knowing her name. Tyler Perry introduced her, but I wasn’t paying attention. I googled a few minutes ago and found that her chosen ‘stage’ name is H.E.R.. She explained the meaning of her name and other things that have recently happened in her life, in the interview on the James Corden show. yt A true diva in the making. Rarely have I seen a woman with a head of hair like hers. I wonder if all of it is her own, real hair. If it is, it’s beautiful.

Out of curiosity, I played “Never As Good As The First Time” with lyrics, a few minutes ago. I never cared much for this song and still don’t like it that much.
