Christmas in my Soul....written and sung by Laura Nyro

video

Ironic how a song written and sung by Laura 40 years ago, can still ring so true.
About the state of our country "America" now and the world today. Her words speak "Volumes".

The Spiritual "Lessons" we've still to learn.

Joy to this World...........

Since it's so late and all asleep here but me, I just listened to the first few minutes and her voice is hauntingly beautiful. I will listen to it better in the next day or so when I can turn it up good.
I love the snow and Peace on Earth angel.

She had a very lovely voice. Though more of my brother's generation, I am aware that Laura was highly regarded within the music industry for her talents. Thanks for sharing, Rhiannon.

Haunting... glad you shared this one, am going to go look for more Laura Nyro on YouTube. I was vaguely familiar with the name from long ago, but don't think I ever heard much, if any, at the time...

Wasn't she special? I hadn't thought of her for years, and to be honest I didn't pay much attention to her 40 years ago. Thanks for posting this special song greeting, Rhi.

What a beautiful voice! To me she sounds like a little blend of Linda Rondstadt & Carol King but more... spiritual. Thanks for bringing this my way. I truly enjoyed hearing it :-)

Great voice, took a couple of tries to get to listen. The computers at work block most video feeds.

Finally got the cat video up at my site.

It's enchanting. So deeply felt even though my internet connection is poor at this time with many intermittent skips.

This is a heartfelt song.

History seems replete with lessons presented but not learned.
Seems we must constantly re-invent the "wheel".
