Listen: Heaven / Joan Armatrading 08 Heaven.mp3
Joan Armatrading: she just scared off all the competition. Proof: still going strong after 30 plus years. And not only musically, she recently ran the NY marathon, 26 miles. Tracy Chapman, who has made some of my favorite singles, coincidentally had a similar sounding voice and songwriting approach, but Joan is Joan. ‘Heaven’ is a favorite, which she finally played live, some 24 years after it’s release, on the US summer ’07 dates. We all lost it. Bless her.
