Lelia Broussard...Ya Gotta Love Her!

When I mentioned that I was going to write about artists that I admire, I really just intended to tell you about visual artists. Then I stumbled across Lelia Broussard on youtube. She was doing a very unexpected cover of "All the Single Ladies". You just gotta love someone who can take a Beyonce song and and make it her own...not an easy task! Her accoustic version is playful, unique and very clever. I can't get her voice out of my the best possible way. I've been playing Lelia Broussard's youtube videos while I paint for the last few days and it's having the most wonderful effect on my creativity. I firmly believe in supporting fellow artists, so I have ordered her CD. I can't wait until it arrives!


  1. Bravo on supporting fellow artists!
    I agree with you. In my home, my children, as they grew, slept under handmade quilts and blankets. Either made by my hand, relatives or crafts people I've met personally.
    Many, many other items adorn my home. And with them a memory/face/story of the person who created it! A legacy of skilled creators in the arts/craft community, all within my living space. It's very comforting and inspiring, in some ways, I imagine, as the song that has inspire you! Well done!

  2. I think it is quite kewl that you are supporting artists. :) Hope you're having a good weekend.
