There’s a lot of music out in the world covering a range of subjects, but this song by Angela Easterling breaks new ground. “All of a sudden it got quiet,” is the opening line of this song of introspection and searching one’s soul for what matters. Throughout, she highlights gratitude for the time we had — you know when it was — to connect to your core values.
The pandemic certainly put things into perspective for me. If you would have asked me my biggest dream for my life before 2020, it would have been career-based or lifestyle-based; like getting one of my songs in a Target commercial, or being able to tour to other countries, and play a bunch of really cool dream gigs. Only the good ones. Suddenly, all of our lives ground to a screeching halt. Everything changed. One day, I was pushing my newborn baby along in his stroller, and I asked myself, “What is one thing, just one thing I want from my life?” The answer came to me, so clear. I want to see my children grow old. — Angela Easterling
