look inside

Don’t waste your life looking outside for the things you want, trying to make the world give you what you need. Instead, look inside of you, and you’ll see everything is already there.

Gia Farrell

Jeannie Marie Bocchicchio (/bəˈkki/; born February 9, 1989), known professionally as Gia Farrell, is an American singer-songwriter. Her 2006 single “Hit Me Up” was featured on the Happy Feet soundtrack in 2006.

Bocchicchio was born in Suffern, New York to Italian-American parents. She began singing lessons at the age of 8. She continued to train her voice, and appeared in a local production of Guys and Dolls and opened for Fat Joe, where she performed songs from Beyoncé and Mariah Carey.

At age 13, she had performed on Showtime At The Apollo being named one of their “Best Artists of the Year” as well as on Ed McMahon’s Next Big Star and Star Search. In 2005 she signed with Atlantic Records. She later adopted her grandmother’s maiden name as her stage name. Farrell cites artists Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey and Christina Aguilera as her biggest influences.[2]

Continuing with the christmass spirit, today I share Christmas Everyday, performed by Gia Farrell. I hope you enjoy it.

james taylor

James Vernon Taylor (born March 12, 1948) is an American singer-songwriter and guitarist. A five-time Grammy Award winner, Taylor was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2000.[2]

Taylor achieved his breakthrough in 1970 with the No. 3 single “Fire and Rain” and had his first No. 1 hit the following year with “You’ve Got a Friend”, a recording of Carole King’s classic song. His 1976 Greatest Hits album was certified Diamond and has sold 12 million US copies. Following his 1977 album, JT, he has retained a large audience over the decades. His commercial achievements declined slightly until a resurgence during the late 1990s and 2000s, when he recorded some of his best-selling and most-awarded work (including Hourglass, October Road and Covers).

Today, I present You’ve Got a Friend, written by Carol King and performed by James Taylor. I hope you enjoy it.

Have a Happy Sunday!!

 

 

YOU’VE GOT A FRIEND

When you’re down and troubled and you need a helping hand
and nothing, whoa, nothing is going right.
Close your eyes and think of me and soon I will be there
to brighten up even your darkest nights.

You just call out my name, and you know where ever I am
I’ll come running to see you again.
Winter, spring, summer, or fall, all you have to do is call and I’ll be there, yeah, yeah,
you’ve got a friend.

If the sky above you should turn dark and full of clouds
and that old north wind should begin to blow,
keep your head together and call my name out loud.
Soon I will be knocking upon your door.
You just call out my name, and you know where ever I am
I’ll come running to see you again.
Winter, spring, summer, or fall, all you have to do is call and I’ll be there.

Hey, ain’t it good to know that you’ve got a friend? People can be so cold.
They’ll hurt you and desert you. Well, they’ll take your soul if you let them,
oh yeah, but don’t you let them.

You just call out my name, and you know where ever I am
I’ll come running to see you again.
Winter, spring, summer, or fall, all you have to do is call, Lord, I’ll be there, yeah, yeah,
you’ve got a friend. You’ve got a friend.
Ain’t it good to know you’ve got a friend. Ain’t it good to know you’ve got a friend.
Oh, yeah, yeah, you’ve got a friend.
