Tami's favorite music: "Up to the Mountain (MLK Song)"

I decided at the beginning of the year that I wanted to bring music back to this blog. Then, a co-worker introduced me to Patty Griffin and I heard this song, "Up to the Mountain (MLK Song)," and I knew the first tune I wanted to share. This is simply beautiful and perfect for today, yes?

If you're searching around You Tube, look for Kelly Clarkson's cover of this song with Jeff Beck. It, too, is magnificent. However, if anyone tries to get you to listen to Susan Boyle's soulless, operatic version, walk away...swiftly.

Off topic but.

I got introduced to Patty Griffin via my wife. We have all her albums (she is a phenomal musician) and a couple of years ago we watched her live at The Orpheum in Boston.

This song is one of my favorites, followed by;

Long Ride Home (this is probably her most famous song off her 1000 kisses album)
Nobody's crying
Tomorrow Night
Tony -- Off her 'Flaming Red' album.
