It’s no secret that some of Benjamin’s songs move me deeply. “Wake Me Up,” “Take Me Now,” “Do You Know What it Feels Like”… The combination of poignant lyrics and the emotion in Ben’s voice somehow reaches in and twists my achy heart until I sob. Crazy, I know, but I am not the only one who has felt this way about a vocalist.
Listening to this terrific version of such a beautiful narration reminds me of the power Benjamin’s gift can have over me.
“Strumming my pain with his fingers, singing my life with his words
Killing me softly with his song, killing me softly with his song
Telling my whole life with his words… killing me softly with his song…”
— Fugees, “Killing Me Softly With His Song” (written by Charles Fox and Norman Gimbel)
