Tonight I updated my Glee life. Besides the new episode being complete crack-up material it gave me a "tear moment". I LOVE when this happens...a song that can just have me in such awe that it brings tears to my eyeballs, LOL. Well the song is by none other than the Queen of Soul herself, Aretha Franklin & the song (which I am ashamed to say I hadn't heard until now) is called "Ain't no way". I think both versions are beautiful and here I give you the original and the cover sung by Amber Riley who plays Mercedes on Glee! As I post these clips this evening I just leave you with a youtube comment I found under the Aretha clip that encapsulates just how I feel about this song right now:
"Close your eyes, listen to the voice, the words, feel love".
Love & Blessings,
