In honor of her new album coming out tomorrow, here’s a beautiful live version of Joan Osborne’s most popular song, One of Us. She is one of my most favorite live performers – she is genuine, raw, and able to be both passionate and tender all at the same time. When I hear her sing, I believe every word she says. I was fortunate enough to have met her several years ago, as she performed with the Funk Brothers at my friend Nancy’s birthday party (I got to sing with them too, as part of a mini girl group! What a thrill!), and she was just as beautiful of a person offstage as she is on stage. I know a lot of people only know her for this song, but she is much more than a one-hit-wonder… Can’t wait to buy the album tomorrow when it comes out, and also I can’t wait to see her perform in Albany at the Egg this Sunday!
