My daughter posted this video on her Facebook account yesterday, so I watched it. I wondered if it was Alex Boye’s version which has been, to date, my favorite version of this song. Alex’s music, in general, makes me smile, which is saying something since I’ve been in a war with music for the past ten years.
The story behind the war is long, convoluted and complicated. It’s also depressing, so I won’t go into it right now. But the upshot is, music doesn’t soothe my savage soul anymore, and very few songs make me want to move, much less sing along.
But this song is different, and this video really did make me smile. It’s right up there with Mr. Boye’s version.
So, in case you need a smile, I’m sharing it here.
