Simply Red - Holding Back The Years (Symphonica In Rosso)

Yes, it's Saturday Night, so it's Music Night on this blog! Last year 'Simply Red' played 'Symphonica In Rosso' which is the annual Dutch event which sees artists perform on three nights with a full orchestra, simply amazing. Of this video, one commenter said, "You know when you see a video of a singer doing a song they first recorded 35 years ago and they struggle to hit the high notes because their voice is worn with age? THIS AIN'T ONE OF THOSE! 33 years on and Mick hasn't lost even the slightest bit of vocal range. His voice is still as pure and unique as ever. Truly one of the greatest voices of our time," and someone else said, "no pre programmed drum beats, no flashy pyrotechnics … just a microphone & soul." I enjoyed this, I hope you do to. All the best Jan

He still has it! Years hit us all, but he has kept his voice, and his fan base, young and old!

I think it is kind of sad to go to see a performer that was on the top of their game many years ago and now their voice isn't half what it used to be. I feel sorry for them. I assume they keep singing because of their love of music but wonder if they realize they sound nothing like they used to sound.
Have a wonderful night- xo Diana

The fact that the song is called 'Holding back the years' is rather appropriate given how good his voice is. I liked this!
