For Remembrance Day from Jim Mauro

A time for remembrance
By Jim Mauro, for tbnewswatch.com

With Remembrance Day approaching I thought it was time to talk about one of my favourite singers, Bette Midler.

The Boogie Woogie Bugle Queen has been a wonderful talent for many years: her voice is at times magical, her various show talents amazing. One of her songs is called From a Distance, an inspiring song with a powerful message about hope for peace even during war. That song compelled this article.

That takes a lot of nerve, and even more determination. This week, however, those risks are paying off for the former Biloxi High School student.

Steele’s full-length debut CD, “I’ll Be Anything” was released Monday. The album is a fantastic collection of easily digestible soul, light funk and jazzy R&B originals. Each song has airtight musicianship from some of the best in the business. Read More
