I was going to greet you by talking about the weather, but I realised that’s a last resort greeting when people have nothing to talk about. I actually have quite a mouthful to share with you.
Some of you are well aware that I am a bit of a singer and towards the end of last year I committed to writing my own music up until June this year. Guess what? Today’s the first day that I actually managed to get something down on paper (got inspired while looking at myself in the bathroom mirror at work). It’s not because I’ve been neglecting it but rather a series of adulting things that required priority status. Add to that, I feel a bit creatively blocked at the moment, which would be the real reason why I haven’t written anything. The last time I sang, apart from singing in church every Sunday, is the Motown show in April. Fortunately, I have myself a gig lined up on 25 August called Love Unplugged. The last one was absolutely amazing and I am stoked about being invited back for the second instalment.
This is where you, my valued blog reader, come into the picture. I reckoned that in order to get my creative juices flowing, I firstly need to get singing again. If there’s music swimming around in my head, it’s sure to help get me out of this slump right? Over the next week, I would like for you to suggest a song that you would like me to do a Youtube cover of. It can be anything, as long as there is no profanity in the music and the message is good. Making this request to you, has me both nervous and excited. Excited because i might be learning brand new music that I have never heard before and nervous because there’s an expectation for me to pull it off and meet your expectation. So it’s a bit of a catch-22, dont you think?
Please post your suggestions in the comments section down below, share this post on your social media platforms, and on Friday, 29 June, I will choose 7 songs and those will be the ones that I will cover. I am so stoked to be doing this again!
As always, thanks for the love and I can’t wait to see what you guys come up with.
