Today……………

was spent sleeping. now that I'm awake, I feel a lot better. It's amazing that I've spent a whole day at home, and didn't even turn on my Xbox.......oh my gosh, I must be ill !!

Have to get to work tomorrow, but I feel I'll be up to it. Have a bit of a headache, but I'm sure I can manage.

One of the people in the choir is an American woman called Jocelyn Brown. Whenever she spoke, I could detect wisdom, the kind of wisdom that comes with experience. A few people seemed to know her, and I figured she was famous. So I 'googled' her, and now, I feel honoured to have been so close to her.

"Unless you've been living in a cave since the late '70s, you have heard Jocelyn Brown's voice at one point or another. As clichéd as it sounds, if the term "disco diva" appeared in a dictionary, a picture of Jocelyn Brown would most likely be placed next to its definition"

*Boso comes out of his cave and searches again*

"Jocelyn Brown is a living legend. As a singer and as a person she has contribiuted to some of the most memeorable recordings created over the last 25 years. The sheer power and delivery of that voice has allowed her to create a fanbase that stretches scross the globe.

Some of the world's most prestigious artists have brought her in to add that special something to their songs: John Lennon, Bruce Springsteen, George Benson, Jimi Hendrix, Roy Ayers, Diana Ross, Michael Bolton and even Michael Jackson are just a handful who give thanks to Jocelyn Brown."

On Saturday, when someone asked her what she was famous for, she mentioned a song called "Somebody Else's guy". She told us the story of how a man broke her heart, and at the same time her sister had her heart broken as well, and they both channeled all their pain into that song. I haven't heard it yet, but I am now actively searching for it.

Reading the cutomer reviews for her albums on Amazon.com, I have nothing but admiration for the woman.
