As we all know love can be the happiest discovery of your life, but sometimes it can also be the saddest. It must be devastating to discover that the person you love, has been unfaithful. This song by Garth Brooks examines that very same scenario. It fits the theme of love coming to light, just not in the way you expect it to. The love that becomes illuminated in this song, is forbidden love. I have chosen it for my last entry because although it is sad, it is beautifully written and I enjoy performing it. It is also very apt, because we have had nothing but rain this week in the UK. All things considered, I felt this choice to be the perfect song to end our latest fun musical get together with :-) I hope you all continue your musical journeys safely and happily, till the next time we meet, hugs Jackie <3

This is my judges entry for round 2. Sing a song that is peaceful and harmonious. At first listen you wouldn't expect to hear a Reggae song? Or would you. Bob Marley was an amazing musician and also a Rastafarian. A religion with deep political convictions, Rastafarianism began in the slums of Jamaica in the 1920s and 30s. African religious tradition has heavily influenced the culture of Rastafarianism and biblical themes have heavily influenced the religion's belief system. The most famous Rastafari is arguably Bob Marley, whose reggae music gained the Jamaican movement international recognition. There is no formal, organized leadership in Rastafarianism, creating a wide variety of spiritual and moral variation within the religion. Some Rastafarians see Rasta more as a way of life, and others see it more as a religion. Nevertheless, uniting the diversity within the movement is belief in the divinity and/or messiahship of Ethiopian Emperor Haile Selassie I, the influence of Jamaican culture, resistance of oppression, and pride in African heritage. The Rastafarian lifestyle usually includes ritual use of marijuana, avoidance of alcohol, the wearing of one's hair in dreadlocks, and vegetarianism. Their peace loving alternative lifestyle is one that is harmonious to every living creature. They put nothing inside their bodies that would harm it and some, not all, smoke the Blessed Herb more commonly known as Cannabis. As soon as I win the lottery, I am going to buy my own Carribean island and start growing lol :-)

My judges entry for Round 1. This song is one that I love to sing when life has given me a kick in the pants. It's all about not giving up, or allowing yourself to wallow in sadness. Even if life seems at it's darkest, there is always something to be joyful about. Singing makes me smile because with every song I sing, I try inhabit the lyrics and live the moment. That is what life is, living lots of small precious moments that eventually become the story of your life. So please don't forget to smile <3

When I was 16 years old. My Religious Education Teacher took us to stay at a Convent for the weekend. It was one of the most extraordinary experiences that I have had. They took a vow of silence which they kept until after dinner. Then they would gather around the fire in the evening and sing to each other. They were not allowed to have a radio or TV. One of the Nuns asked me if I knew this song and I said yes. She asked me to sing it for them. So I did an Acapella version for them. Whenever I hear this song I think of that peaceful, happy time. For the duration of the song, We were not Nuns and schoolgirls, we were music lovers sharing a beautiful song. For today's feature page <3
