Better You… Better Me

 

Siedah Garrett is one of our generation’s most treasured talents.  I could go on and on about her God given creativity from sewing to singing.   This beautiful woman has written and performed innumerable songs which speak timeless volumes, especially these days in the climate of discord in our lives.  I recall the energy Siedah brought to Seattle when we asked her to perform Man in the Mirror for the Jungle Party, a song which she wrote for Michael Jackson.  Those lyrics should reside in our hearts and minds everyday- “Take a look at yourself and then make that change.”  Another brilliant track I will share today was from Siedah’s post yesterday from a collaboration with our uncle, Quincy Jones Back on the Block Album.

“Can you believe it’s been 30 years since Quincy Jones asked me to write lyrics to a Brothers Johnson instrumental, then recruited 13-yr old Tevin Campbell to sing it, resulting in a #1 hit single, “Tomorrow (A Better You, Better Me)”? Seems like yesterday!”

It does seem like yesterday… I hope everyone will listen and take these words to heart and make a better you and better me.

Thank you, Siedah!
