There’s something humbling and uplifting about this song. Mahalia’s vocal delivery is soft but her message is poignant. It’s an autobiography. How she navigated the world as a young child and how she intends to go forward – striving for the stars.
The lyrics are poetic but not complicated. It’s a song intended to inspire and whether you’re looking for that motivation or you’re just looking for a song to de-stress, this is one for the playlist.
