Today is my all-time favorite musician’s birthday, Goapele. Her voice is unique and her musical style is versatile. Her independence and entrepreneurship are also worthy of admiration. The fact that she’s from the Bay Area doesn’t hurt either.
The music video “Play” (above) is from her latest album, Break of Dawn. My favorite track from Break of Dawn is “Right Here.” Go figure. It’s also my-sweetie-and-I’s song) There isn’t a music video for this track yet, but you can listen here. I swear she sounds amazing, possibly even better live than on disc. I’ve
invited dragged Cliff to many of Goapele’s live performances in the Bay Area, including her CD launch party last year (pictured above). She probably thinks I’m a stalker by now…
Happy Birthday Goapele!
