A change is gonna come – Soul Music

Music being not only a fabulous tool to Connect people, but also to Boost Your Soul, and with people demonstrating all over Our World, below song came to my mind. We need a change and who better can sing about that, than the queen of soul.

Connection with your Soul

There are many ways to Boost Your Soul and music is a fantastic one. There are a variety of genres you can listen to, even Soul Music is a genre in itself. To me, music is also a way to Connect with your Soul. A tool to help you go through emotions and acknowledge them. Depending on your mood, there will be always a piece of art that goes along with it. What I love most about music is how it can Connect people.

The video I’ve chosen to share of Aretha Franklin performing is from a tribute gathering for Nelson Mandela. Music for the soul, by a beautiful soul, for a beautiful soul. Let’s hope this time the much needed change is gonna come for Our World.

Aretha Franklin - A change is gonna come

Lyrics

There’s an old friend that
I once heard say
Something that touched my heart
And it began this way

I was born by the river
In a little tent
And just like the river
I’ve been runnin ever since
He said it’s been a long time comin’
But I know my change is gonna come
Oh yeah

He said it’s been too hard livin’
But I’m afraid to die
I might not be if I knew
What was up there
Beyond the sky
It’s been a long, a long time comin’
But I know my change has got to come
Oh yeah

I went, I went to my brother
And I asked him, brother
Could you help me, please?
He said, good sister
I’d like to but I’m not able
And when I, when I looked around
I was right back down
Down on my bended knees
Yes I was, oh

There’ve been times that I thought
I thought that I wouldn’t last for long
But somehow right now I believe
That I’m able, I’m able to carry on

I tell you that it’s been along
And oh it’s been an uphill journey
All the way
But I know, I know, I know

I know my change is gonna come
Sometimes I had to cry all night long
Yes I did
Sometimes
I had to give up right

For what I knew was wrong
Yes it’s been an uphill journey
It’s sure’s been a long way comin
Yes it has

It’s been real hard
Every step of the way
But I believe, I believe
This evenin’ my change is come

Yeah I tell you that
My change is come
