JUST last Sunday, I was scrolling through my Facebook when I chanced upon the video of Celine Dion singing “Immortality” as a tribute to Barry Gibb and The Bee Gees. The following video had Carole King on piano with her three lady friends, Celine Dion, Gloria Estefan and Shania Twain singing ‘You’ve got a friend’ written by King 46 years ago. Both versions were the best that I have ever heard.
Facing mortality, the first song was a poignant reminder to me of the passing of time. The second song had me reminiscing about friendships made and lost throughout my journey of life.
