Today, Spice has been singing and singing this song. One of her names comes from the civil rights activist, and my favourite singer ever, Nina Simone. She heard that her auntie was showing a bunch of Nina Simone’s music to Gramma, and has been squawking out “To be YOUNG, gifted and BLACK!!” ever since…
Spice’s other favourite song this morning… “I love this song. It’s so sweet.”
BTW – did you know Elton and his partner have a house in Kelwona? That’s why we get him to perform here so often. Awesome.
Sugar’s gaga over Bruno Mars… I mean, who isn’t? This is her favourite song. She says “he’s nice looking, even though he smokes.”
