Voices That Care (feat. Friends of Voices Only)
I remember when the original version of this song came out, back durring the first Gulf War. I was in Jr High school, and we were all sending pen-pal letters and care packages to the troops. I remember really loving the song, both for what it said and the images that came with it. All those celebrities, some my age, comng together to send a message of love and support to those fighting to keep us safe. At the time, I also had an older brother serving in the area, so it was especially powerful in how it impacted me.
When I realized just what the song was that Voices Only, and their friends from The Sing-Off, were recreating I was hesitant. This wasn't just some song I loved rocking out to when I was a kid... No. This was an indelible moment from my early teens that effected me greatly. I love the music I've heard from many of the members of the "Friends" group, but would it do it justice?
More than. I have listened to this track several times now. Every time I'm again struck by an emotional connection to that time long ago, and the vibe here and now that they are sending out to our warriors in the field. I find myself smiling, with a tightness in my throat I seldom get.
This is not just a rehashing of an old favorite. They have trully captured the spirit of what the origional was created for, and made it MORE. I can hardly find words to express how greatfull I am for what they have succeeded in doing. Both the magic of the music, and the purpose behind them making it.
Bravo Zulu, Voices Only & Friends.
