Easy! This week’s challenge is different because it’s about three videos on one topic.
1.) Post three videos that describe your weekend.
1. Survivor – Destiny’s Child
“Survivor” is a song by the American R&B group Destiny’s Child. It was written and composed by group member Beyoncé, Anthony Dent, and Mathew Knowles for the band’s third studio album “Survivor” (2001). The song won the Best R&B Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals at the 2002 Grammy Awards. I chose this song because I was working Friday and Sunday the weekend of the Challenge. I had to deal with some extremely rude people and I tried to remind myself that I can get through anything. On those days when you want to throw in the towel, this song can definitely get you back on track. The only people who lose in life are those that quit.
2. Yeh To Sach Hai Ki Bhagwan Hai- Hum Saath Saath Hain
Hum Saath Saath Hain (English: We are together) is a 1999 Indian drama film written and directed by Sooraj R. Barjatya. The film was produced and distributed by the home production of Sooraj Barjatya, Rajshri Productions. The film stars Salman Khan, Saif Ali Khan, Mohnish Behl, Tabu, Sonali Bendre and Karisma Kapoor, while Alok Nath, Reema Lagoo, Neelam Kothari, and Mahesh Thakur play pivotal supporting roles. I chose this wonderful song because in the movie it was sang at a 25th Wedding Anniversary of the main characters parents. The weekend of this challenge we attended an event celebrating the 50th Wedding Anniversary of a couple that my dad’s family has known for over a century.
3. You Raise Me Up – Josh Groban
My third song is You Raise Me Up originally by Secret Garden but the version that I chose is by Josh Groban. In 2003, David Foster decided to produce the song after being introduced to it by Frank Petrone of peermusic, the song’s publisher. He chose the up-and-coming Josh Groban to record the song, which was accompanied by the tenor Craig Von Vennik of the Establishment. Groban’s version made it to #1 on the Billboard adult contemporary chart in early 2004 and remained there for six weeks. This version also peaked at #73 on the Billboard Hot 100, his first single to do so, and was nominated for a 2005 Grammy Award. The reason that I chose this song is on Saturday that weekend we found out that a relative had passed away in India.
