September 28, 1997 LeAnn Rimes went to No.1 on the US album chart with You Light Up My Life Inspirational Songs. (via thisdayinmusic.com)
LeAnn Rimes recorded Bridge Over Troubled Water in her Inspirational Songs album that went to #1 on this day! There were a bunch of great songs to choose from but I really love this one. It’s a smart love song and for me it sounds like a church song and I do love me some gospel!
Lots of great singers have covered Bridge Over Troubled Water from Eva Cassidy to Aretha and Clay Aiken wore this out on American Idol.
My voice is naturally scratchy but today even more so as I sang outside last night. It was a great night at Saxon Grill in Scarsdale and it was their last BBQ of the season. The weather started off nice then got cold but everybody was drinking and dancin’ and they didn’t feel a thing. My 2 other singers were smart and brought jackets and scarves, but not me!
Anyway, it’s great song, and now we are heading out to a relative’s Sweet 16 party. I hope they got lots of shrimp!
My favorite part of a party is the shrimp and nothing is worse than getting there late and seeing 2 or 3 soggy shrimp left on the table that you know was glorious when it first came out!
