Our Honorary Conductor for this week’s LET’S give a warm WELCOME FOR THE 1ST TIME Cathy from Stunning Keisha!!  Applause… Our theme is your choice song picks’, so anything goes. Have fun with it!  So my first tune is from a story I was reading on your tube.  It really struck a nerve with me… hope you don’t mind.  THESE TWO SONGS WERE TAUGHT TO ME BY MY FATHER, and my first tune is… 

In The Garden – with lyrics – by Alan Jackson Next up is “The old rugged cross”, by Allan Jackson… nothing, but yet another beautiful tune my daddy taught me when I was a little girl.  My mom was Catholic so we learned songs from/of the church, but when I went for a ride with my daddy he was Prodestant/Methodist he would sing his songs and taught them to me.  Now granted I never knew all the words just the words he remembered, but I knew those words like the back of my hand.  I sang what he sang, and I was so little maybe 3 or 4 & Daddy &  I sang together just the words he remembered!!!  Now thanks to google.  The next one is… The old Rugged Cross!!!  and here’s something I truly fell in love with.  There is a video I found at YouTube, with Michael Buble’… – Help Me Make It Through The Night (feat. Loren Allred). You’re gonna love this!!!

Now almost done my friends…  Here’s a tune with a funny story with Tom Jones & new upcoming star… 

 Peter Donegan’s ‘I’ll Never Fall In Love Again’ |Blind Auditions| The Voice UK 2019 TOM JONES – I’ll Never Fall In Love Again (1967)  Do you see the difference?  Personally I don’t think there’s much!  Stayin’ in with style!  Man, don’t cha love it?
