Happy Purrthday to November Babies #MewsicMovesMe

The theme of this week's Mewsic Moves Me blog hop is singers/musicians born in November. Let's get this mewsical birthday party started!

k.d. lang's version of one of the most beautiful songs in any musical genre...

 

Many artists have recorded I May Never Get to Heaven over the years, including Aretha Franklin, but Conway was the only one to take it to #1. This is my second favorite version by Narvel Felts. His voice is so unusual and on this song it gives me chills.


Coincidentally, I May Never Get to Heaven was written by country star Bill Anderson, also a November baby...


I had the opportunity to meet Linda Davis when she opened for Reba at our local fair back in 1990. I love her voice and always wished she'd been more successful in her country career. Trivia time: Linda's daughter is Hillary Scott of Lady Antebellum!


We hope you enjoyed our choices this week. Let us know if you have a favorite!

KD Lang such a voice. She really does this song justice too! Your next tune I'm sorry I've never heard it before, but this voice is awesome. Bill Anderson, nope never heard this one, but thanks for the introduction. Really nice tune. Nope, I'm sorry I've never heard this tune either, but thanks for the introduction... so pretty! Such a topic the tune must've really gone big. Such a heartfelt singer! Thanks for playin' along girlfriend. Hope you had a great weekend and this finds you healthy, safe & wearin' that mask!!! Have a great day!

Dad says KD Lang's voice certainly is beautiful, but he thinks Jeff Buckley's haunting rendition of Hallelujah is the all-time best version ever.

Somehow, I don't think I'd ever before heard KD Lang's rendition of Hallelujah. It's gorgeous!

I almost wrote about k. d. lang. She has a really nice voice and though I don't like this song (because I've heard so many versions of it, I think) she does do a wonderful job with it. Good list!

K.D. Lang's rendition of Hallelujah is one of my all time favorite songs. It literally touches the very depths of one's soul!

Oops, the last video isn't available in the U.S. but K.D. Lang more than made up for it. What a wonderful cover of that song! Alana ramblinwitham.blogspot.com
