― Shaun Hick

The song being featured this evening is titled "Somewhere Over the Rainbow"(2). One of the all time classics sung by the brilliant Aretha Franklin.

Aretha died today, 08/16/2018. I very sad as I'm sure so many fans are that grew up with her stunning voice and melodies. RIP lovely lady heaven is calling as the world pauses in respect.

Born in Memphis, Tennessee, Aretha Franklin became an icon in the music industry. Her genre is

I have listed the lyrics to the song below for your reading pleasure.

"Over The Rainbow(3)


Somewhere over the rainbow
Way up high
There's a land that I heard of
Once in a lullaby
Somewhere over the rainbow
Skies are blue
And the dream you dare to dream
Really do come true

Someday I'll wish upon a star
And wake up where the clouds are far
Behind me
Where troubles melt like lemon drops
Away above the chimney tops
That's where you'll find me

Somewhere over the rainbow
Bluebirds fly
Birds fly over the rainbow
Why then, oh
Why can't I?

If happy little bluebirds fly
beyond the rainbow
Why, oh Why can't I?


I hope everyone is having a wonderful week-end and thank you as always for checking out my posts. I pray you’re having a blessed and safe day or evening regardless of where you might be in this world.

My words, my thoughts, my language...

Peace as always
Diana
