Sing, Sing a Song Saturday

I started doing what I call Sing, Sing a Song Saturday.  I'm going to post one song on Saturdays that the boys or I like. 

The song may be part of a movie, a kid's video or just a song we like. I'll try and include why we like it and/or the history of the song/singer.

This week I'm covering a singer named Joss Stone. I have never heard of her. I typed in google, artists similar to Norah Jones. Joss Stone was one of the names that came up.

Joss Stone has been big into music since she was young. She began a singing career at thirteen, securing a record deal at 15, and recording her star-making debut album, The Soul Sessions, which was released in 2003.

Joss has decided to revisit where it all began - with The Soul Sessions Volume 2 is a stunning exercise in vocal poise, passion and power. Things took off for Joss in an enormous way.

In the UK she had a top 10 single, “You Had Me”, which earned her 2 Brit Awards that same year. Her third album, 2007’s Introducing Joss Stone, was a more independent, which Joss further showcased her songwriting abilities, and revealed the singer had truly been loved by the American audience when it crashed into the US charts at No. 2, marking the biggest debut ever for a female British solo artist on the Billboard charts.

In her short young life and already long career, Joss has performed onstage with the likes of James Brown, Gladys Knight, Solomon Burke, Blondie, Smokey Robinson and Melissa Etheridge among many others. She’s contributed to albums by Jeff Beck and Ringo Starr, played the Super Bowl pre-game show, performed on the Grammy’s, and won a Grammy herself!

With that kind of background I'm surprised I haven't heard of her. Maybe you have!

I've heard a few of her songs along the way over the past few years and I love the sound of her voice.

I first heard of her recently, and now this is the third time since then...isn't that funny how that happens? I like her.

You probably already know I have never heard of her. She is very beautiful and sings that way too.

I love Joss Stone! She has a voice that I think is beyond her years. Very soulful!
