I don’t even know if I remember what year this movie came out, though I’m almost positive it was prior to high school. By then Lauryn Hill was with the Fugees. Given my Catholic school education and a multitude of years attending all-school Mass, where I helped lead music, this scene/song performance brings me to a place of joy. I only wish for a fraction of their gospel/soul style in me.
This song reminds me to find a reason to sing every day. Just because singing makes me happy.
