I was driving down the road the other day and decided to pull up Goapele because I wanted to hear her song Cool Breeze. Being a Goapele fan, I thought I was entirely in the know about her music. And then Strong As Glass started playing. Anyone who loves music knows the feeling that comes over you when you connect with a song on so many levels. About 45 seconds into Strong As Glass, I wasn’t really sure if I was hearing the words correctly, so I decided to rewind and start it over again. This song spoke to my heart so much that I knew I had to share it with you all.
To all of those people out there that are searching for that space to be human. You are not alone!
P.S. For those of you that are curious, Goapele means to move forward in Setswana, a Southern African language.
