Ribbon in the Sky ~ The Soul Man Cometh
Posted by djafan on Tuesday, April 19, 2011
There is no cutting the ribbon that binds David to his soulful roots. It is not frayed. It is as strong as ever and if his cover of Stevie Wonder’s “Ribbon in the Sky,” is any indication, it is getting stronger every day. There is just something special about the joy he exudes when singing these songs: “My Girl,” “Stand By Me,” “Shop Around,” and that luscious, impromptu, from the nether regions of his bodacious musical gut “Works for Me” from Reno. All stand as testimonies to what must be true, at least in part. Submitted for your consideration, the uncontrollable finger snapping in each of the two videos posted. Watching these performances, I get the distinct impression that here, in this place, with these songs, this man is in his element and loving every minute of it. Follow your bliss, David. Just follow your bliss. It will not steer you wrong.
Don’t let his smile lull you into a false sense of security. We got ourselves a serious situation on our hands.
