Billie Holiday “Strange Fruit” And Julia Holter – “World” ***messymandella***

           Have you ever been hypnotized or lifted up to another place or captivated by an original voice? With technology anyone can auto tune a singing voice. You can’t auto-tune talent. Two women with 2 different backgrounds and decades of musical separation, intrigue those that believe a unique voice is not something you can create in a studio. A voice is a gift, or as in this case, a warning to the world of confusion, and the state of the world we live in . You hear  a painful, but hauntingly beautiful  voice, but were you also listening?

                   If you have not had a chance to experience this phenomenal,  these two women will definitely relax and trouble you because of the heart-felt pain, but elaborate similarities of  their voices.




The music of the late Billie Holiday, still transforms historians because of the pain.
The demons that tortured Billie,  in her destructive life also tortured the late Whitney Houston. Yes, life plaques celebrities with beauty and talent even if it is more than  40 years apart.

Artist will usually have one addictive down-fall,  because their talent is too powerful to contain, and even in the case of Whitney, Cissy said her talent scared her.

I also deal with that  the feeling, of wondering ,”Why am I seeing this, How can I create this? Why am I telling these stories?”

       That melancholy  voice transforms the electricity in your  body, and it can’t escape you. You can imagine standing where Billie Holiday stood, when she first saw that body swinging from that tree. It is history, pain and struggle and a gift  that was merely too intense for one person to contain.


       Julia’s  Holters’ voice might be the last sound you hear before you leave this earthly life. It is a heavenly but depressing voice that haunts most. It  is time to listen and judge the similarities in this songs and the beauty of both women, with different backgrounds, decades, and musical training that captivate any audience. Julia will leave her own space in history. 

         We also know some of the best voices of our time, are barely heard and sadly will not reach that well deserved pinnacle of success. Hip Hip would not be anything, without samples, musical exploration and a vast appreciation to open your mind, and step away from the mundane. Create your own sound, and make your name and voice that next generations will appreciate. Billie Holiday died in 1959 and we still appreciate the gift and curse that she left behind.

You know when you hear Julia’s voice, that this will be the last song you will sing,or is it? What happened?

Never  have I heard a voice so transforming, as this Domino Recording Artist.

Is she telling you good-bye, for good?

What is you trying to escape?

Julia Holter appears to be  possessed with the spirits of Billie Holiday and Karen Carpenter

Listen for yourself! 

Meet Domino Recording Artist, Julia Holter!

Long Live Lady Day!

 

 

Chrisette Michele – Unsung And Admired (Together)***messymandella***

 

 

        Admiration, and Unsung may seem like a paradox to most artistic critics. Arts will embrace the many facets of performance, fashion, and  heavenly talent! When Chrisette Michelle  opened her voice, this body of music, provides you with that  feeling the wonderment  in her voice. Chrisette will always change her personal hair styles and clothing, that is a given.  All Chrisette fans know this, if you have ridden with the songstress thus far.

             I didn’t feel a personal connection to her  Maybach Collaboration. I knew that was not going to make her proud in the end. She lost that authentic, universally acknowledged Chrisette Michelle genuineness that sets her in her own lane. Now, she appears to be more comfortable with her new lifestyle and vocally grown! With a voice similar to Ella Fitzgerald  that old soul in her voice reminds you that Neo-Soul is not dead, just for the moment unsung.
