I absolutely love, really love being a part of the behind the scenes action of the first presentation, the opening show and an official acknowledgement (ie; press release) o‘a change is coming’. THAT’S MY THING! I found this niche some time ago and I have yet to get bored or tire of it.

That exact same energy and excitement for all of the above applies to any piece of music I love. The vocal and instrumental arrangements in this video became the performance.

U2 & Harlem Gospel Choir ‘I still haven’t found what I’m looking for’ (4:27)

Nothing all that unique about a studio video, I just like Mark Knopfler.

Mark Knopfler ‘Boom, Like That’ (5:41)

Mark Knopfler ‘Whoop De Doo’ (3:47)

THIS IS INCREDIBLE! Mark Knopfler ‘Telegraph Road’ (13:20)

My memories of a live performance given by a symphony orchestra are filled with the anticipation felt before the crescendo and the vibrations of the Kettle Drums coming up through the floor.

can also embrace the difficulty and the simplicity of a single instrument, ‘A CAPPELLA’ and one vocal accompanied by one or two instruments. The commercial element doesn’t take center stage. The following are a handful of my favorites. 


P!nk & Jim Moore (her father) ‘I Have Seen The Rain’ (3:55)

Lady Gaga ‘Born This Way’ (A cappella 3:09)

Ludovico Einaudi ‘Le Onde [the wave]’ (5:39)

Gilmour, Crosby & Nash ‘Find The Cost of Freedom’ (1:53)

Pentatonix ‘Mary Did You Know’ (4:04)

Many song lyrics have been inspired and created from tragedy. In 1996 the lyrics in this song were altered with compassion.


Ted Christopher & Mark Knopfler ‘Knockin on heaven’s door’ (4:08)
