There are some songs that define moments in my life in such powerful ways. This is one of those songs that has become so encompassed by my heart that sometimes it feels like I wrote it myself, as it speaks for my heart in a way that I haven’t yet found words for. It’s one of my favourite songs to perform, and this version was caught on camera during soundcheck at a Seabrooke’s Theatre in Durban. Originally recorded by Bonnie Raitt, and written by Mike Reid and Allen Shamblin.
