    She's amazing and I'm so grateful she's bringing real music back to the industry. However, I feel she should take some singing classes. Her singing is ok, but I feel like she could sing a lot better with some training.

  • Errollyn Jackson-Dickerson

    Shout out to H.E.R. for putting her own grip on Donny's song- she just proved her technical chops. Her vocal coach should be proud. There's a great future for her in this business. I just caution her to treat it as a business and handle hers! I'm proud of her.

    I've been so many places in my life and time
    I've sung a lot of songs
    I've made some bad rhymes
    I've acted out my life in stages
    With ten thousand people watching
    But we're alone now
    And I'm singing this song to you
    I know your image of me is what I hoped to be
    I treated you unkindly
    But darling can't you see
    There's no one more important to me
    Baby can't you see through me?
    'Cause we're alone now and I'm singing this song to you
    You taught me precious secrets
    Of a true love
    You wanted nothing
    You came out in front
    When I was hiding
    But now I'm so much better
    And if my words don't come together
    Listen to the melody
    'Cause my love is in there hiding
    I love you in a place
    Where there's no space or time
    I love you for my life
    You're a friend of mine
    And when my life is over
    Remember when we were together
    We were alone
    And I was singing this song to you
    I love you in a place
    Where there's no space or time
    I love you for my life
    You're a friend of mine
    And when my life is over
    Remember when we were together
    We were alone and I was singing this song to you
    We were alone
    And I was singing this song to you
    We were alone and I was singing this song
    Singing this song to you
