From the first time I heard Laura Mvula I believed in angels . No seriously, her voice is celestial, especially in combination with her glorious orchestral arrangements and angelic harmonies.
Yesterday, I stumbled upon her latest masterpiece in collaboration with the great musician/producer Nile Rodgers.
All the brilliance in the musical elements aside, the message, woven into the fabric of the song, appeals to us humans to pursue dreams and goals regardless of otherwise limiting circumstances with simple phrases as
Take your broken wings and fly
Take your broken feet and run
We’re all urged to get going and overcome.
‘Round the mountain, all God’s children run – All God’s children run ‘round the mountain run
New Mvula goodness has found its way to my worksongs playlist.
