Donny Hathaway: un auténtico hombre soul

Voz elegante, llena de espiritualidad y feeling. Interpretaciones con alma, que te hacen sentir y disfrutar con su música. Canciones que te obligan a abrir tu corazón y alcanzar un placer extrasensorial con sus notas..., así es como Donny Hathaway me hace sentir al escuchar su extraordinarias cualidades vocales. A través suyo el Gospel, el RnB, o el Jazz, alcanzaban una nueva dimensión ya que era un auténtico maestro fusionándolo. Parecía como si su desdichada vida -que le llevó al suicidio- necesitara una válvula de escape en forma de música que pudiera dar salida a toda la felicidad que no había podido disfrutar y que poseía en su interior.

Una imagen -y en este caso un video- vale más que mil palabras, por lo que aquí me place dejaros no uno, sino dos interpretaciones magistrales de este extraordinario hombre; "Put Your Hand In The Hand" en directo, y "Someday We'll All Be Free", exhalando toda la magia de un auténtico hombre soul.



Put Your Hand In The Hand
Put your hand in the hand of the man who stilled the water
Put your hand in the hand of the man who calmed the sea
Take a look at yourself & you can look at others diff'rently
Put your hand in the hand of the man from galilee

Every time i look into the holy book i wanna tremble
When i read about the part where a carpenter cleared the temple
See those buyers and the sellers were no diff'rent fellas
Than what you & i profess to be
And it causes me shame to know that man is not what he should be

Put your hand in the hand of the man who stilled the water
Put your hand in the hand of the man who calmed the sea
Take a look at yourself & you can look at others diff'rently
Put your hand in the hand of the man from galilee

Hey my mama taught me how to pray before i reached the age of seven
When i'm down on my knees hey i'm close to heaven."
My daddy lived his life with 2 kids & a wife
& you've got to do what you've got to do
But he showed me enough of what it takes to see you through

This is what he used to tell me...

Put your hand in the hand of the man who stilled the water
Put your hand in the hand of the man who calmed the sea
Ya got'a take a good look at yourself & you can look at others diff'rently
Put your hand in the hand of the man from galilee
Someday We'll All Be Free
Hang on to the world as it spins around
Just don't let the spin get you down
Things are moving fast
Hold on tight and you will last
Keep your self respect, your manly pride
Get yourself in gear
Keep your stride
Never mind your fears
Brighter days will soon be here
Take it from me, someday we'll all be free, yeah

Keep on walking tall
Hold your head up high
Lay your dreams right up to the sky
Sing your greatest song
And you'll keep going, going on
Take it from me, someday we'll all be free
Hey, just wait and see, some day we'll all be free, yeah
Take it from me, someday we'll all be free
It won't be long, take it from me, someday we'll all be free
Take it from me, take it from me, take it from me...
