DAY 163 GRAMMY CHASE: AMEL


A voice who’s been slept on by many, but truly appreciated by those of us that really matter, as Amel is no slouch when it comes to songwriting and performing. Her voice is unique with great range of octaves and her music has always been uplifting. This particular video I’m posting is for three reasons, 1) other than mother nature, she is the only figure/subject in the video and the video was incredible to me, given the cutaways, image decays, subject framing etc, 2) the song is a true dedication to all of the people that know what love is and how it can truly make you feel when it’s good. 3) she IS a Grammy nominated artist but not for her own work, it was for a remake of Roberta Flack and Donnie Hathaway song called “Where is the Love,” along with Glenn Lewis and Stanley Clarke, which Nominated for Best R&B Vocal Performance by a Duo or Group 2004.

I think that she has a body of work that stands on its own and is surely worthy of being noted by the Recording Academy, but we don’t live in a perfect world now, do we?
