I KEEP GOING TO THE RIVER TO PRAY

I’m on the fence whether or not I like “Ghost” by Ella Henderson.  I’ve been listening to it on repeat today because I really like the moments when she sings the lyric “I keep going to the river to pray.”  I must admit that that is the only lyric I can clearly understand her sing, she seems to be rushing through the verses.  Regardless, I have this overwhelming desire during the chorus of the song to throw my hands up in the air and dance around.  I really like how she starts the first chorus singing the hook down the octave, and bringing it up later in the song.  It makes it infectious.

The more I listen to this song, the more I’m in awe of incredible her voice is.  She flawlessly moves through the octaves, and easily delivers a rather powerful performance.  So maybe I do really like it.
