Mi Mancherai Video

I have been doing some figure drawings this morning and listening to music. I picked Josh Groban and specifically "Mi Mancherai". The song brought tears to my eyes and I had to stop drawing. Yes, the song is beautiful, but what tugs at my heart and makes me want to cry is seeing the performance. (Thanks to Dave the Painting Guy for the link) There is something about watching people do what they have a passion for that strikes me at the deepest heart level. Watching the passion in Lucia Micarelli's and Josh's faces gives a deeper and more intense meaning to the song. Now I can carry the video of their performance in my mind and "watch" it whenever I listen. Do you have something that strikes at your heart? I'd really like to hear about it.

Your posting is very poignant. As we artists capture the moment of our subjects, we really do need them, in that moment. Beautiful thought, thank you for sharing Annie.

Hi Annie,

I just found your site because of your Karin Jurick house, and I love your work and your writing.

I followed the link to watch Josh Groban and Lucia Micarelli perform Mi Mancherai and it moved me too. I think that is a marvel -- that a woman in Oregon, can tell me in Toronto to watch something beautiful and transform part of the day.

Thanks so much. Your work reflects your generous spirit.

Barbara

Love your post and I can't wait to read more.Once on the Grammys Aretha Franklin was going to sing with Pavarotti well he was sick and she had to sing an Italian song, with her hands clasps in front of her she nailed it.I still get goose bumps from remembering that night and how it lead me to enjoying opera.
