  1. Oh how I agree. This was the most beautiful song this year as far as I’m concerned. The studio version was the best version of the song also. I love that David A. started and ended it. I put this on the very loudest off my computer and let it fill up my home with the spirit it brings. It is beautiful. And I regret that I didn’t get the itunes download of this. Anyone have one ?


  2. Thank you MCL for highlighting this incredible version. Even the most dedicated fans were not aware of this collaboration. I’m thrilled more people will now become aware of its existence and will be able to enjoy it. It’ stunning!

We were discussing if Crush was a difficult song to sing and you mentioned that a student of yours would be working on it…tell me please, how is the process coming along? Do you have anymore insights as to the degree of difficulty this song posses when performing it live?
