Emile/Keros/Thomas Collaboration - He Ain’t Heavy…” - for Gary K. - The Hollies - cover - 8/17/22 Hi… one beautiful thing about having a YouTube Channel is the good friends I’m making on this musical journey… Thomas Marwedel from Germany… Keros Manx from France…. Gary Keitz from New York…. and a cool thing about technology is the ability to perform, record, transmit, mix, and produce a collaborative musical recording across the world… Gary is a good friend… an enthusiastic guitarist… a passionate lover of music… a great storyteller… a lover of his wife ”his Galveston Girl”… a friend who has a sincere and natural gift for bringing friends… and new friends… together in a very positive and wonderful way… Keros… who is unfortunately not on Facebook… is our guitarist… so smooth… his vocals so smooth and yet emotional to match the beauty of his guitarwork… and Keros did all of the heavy lifting in receiving, mixing, matching, and producing our recordings with his recording… Thomas does the heavy lifting in setting a beautiful tone, perfect tempo, and just the right “touch” at the beginning of… and throughout… this beautiful song, with his resonant and powerful vocals… and a perfect and emotional closing phrase… to send our gift to Gary…. to show our appreciation of his gift of friendship and Brotherhood…. “He Ain’t Heavy, He’s Our Brother”…. I hope you enjoy our collaboration… it was quite an experience… thanks for watching…. any comments are always welcomed… be sure and watch to the end…

Emile Champion - Now & Forever - Carole King - cover - 6/19/22 Carole King wrote this song for the soundtrack of the 1992 film “A League of Their Own”… featured an ensemble cast including Tom Hanks, Geena Davis, Madonna, Bill Pullman and others… the film was set in the 1940s, during World War II, and was a fictionalized account of the real-life All American Girls Professional Baseball League… Is the song, and its lyrics, restricted only to the players on this baseball team, who were thrown together, lived together, played together, cried and laughed together… loved each other as members of the team, during the War? nope… don’t think so… especially coming from the pen and piano… the heart and mind… of Carole King… one of the greatest Songwriters ever… hope you enjoy my rendition… thanks for watching….

Emile Champion/Darcy Fennel - When I Fall In Love - Victor Young/Edward Heyman - cover - 6/13/22 Third in our series “Duets with Darcy”…. Darcy wasn’t familiar with this song… she was expecting another song we had discussed, and didn’t see my text message saying “let’s do this one!!”…. we went over it a few times early this afternoon with our Vocal Mentor, Jorge Cavazos…. who has the musical and vocal background, college education, and performance and teaching chops… and always offers outstanding advice and commentary to improve our efforts… Darcy and I then began the process in our “recording studio”… the Narthex of our church….late this afternoon… charged the cell-phone… reminded ourselves of the song’s dynamics… and dove right in… let the “starts & stops” on camera serve as the practice runs, if necessary…. six “starts & stops” for various minor adjustments… five complete “takes”…. this was the last and best offering… hope you enjoy it… thanks for watching….

Emile Champion - One Moment In Time - John Bettis/Albert Hammond/Whitney Houston - cover - 6/8/22 I didn’t know, until a couple of days ago, that this song was written for the 1988 Summer Olympics… but the lyrics make sense… I was familiar with the song… meaning I’d heard it a few times over the years… but I’ve never been a huge fan of much of the music from the ‘80s…. but I stumbled upon a concert performance of this a couple of days ago by Dana Winner… a vocalist from Belgium who I had never heard of… it was very powerful and beautiful so decided to give it a try… obviously a stripped back rendition of this big ballad…. but hope you enjoy it… thanks for watching…

Emile Champion - How Can You Mend A Broken Heart - Barry and Robin Gibb/The Bee Gees- cover- 2/18/22 I was able to cover two songs tonight… this is the second one… from 1971… full disclosure… I said one lyric… one word… incorrectly in this song… I’ll let you see if you can spot it… I didn’t realize it until I left the church about 9:45, and decided that, while not “correct”, it can still “work” within the message of the song… besides, I’m pretty happy with how the rest of my acoustic effort came out… and I didn’t want to turn around, unpack everything, and try again… so, please let me know what you think… hope you enjoy it… thanks for watching…

Emile Champion - Smooth - Take 2 - Rob Thomas/Itaal Shur/Santana - cover- Thank you, Jorge - 2/18/22 Call this “Smooth… Take 2”… I explain it in the introductory comments for tonight’s recording, but a very good friend and “Vocal Performance Mentor” said my first effort at this song was “good”, but I could “take it up a level” in telling the story and giving it some additional “punch”… So “Take 2” tonight… I do think it’s an improvement over Wednesday’s effort… and it gave me a couple of extra days to better memorize it… as always… best listened with earbuds in both ears… hope you enjoy it… thanks for watching…

Emile Champion- Bridge Over Troubled Water/You’ve Got A Friend- Paul Simon/Carole King- cover-8/9/21 Well, this was a good challenge… I thought it would be interesting to run a medley of two songs with a really good, similar message…. both from my Senior year in high school… back in the day of some really good music… started at 5:00… wrapped up a bit after 11:00 PM, with no breaks… six hours… sore back… tired brain… sore fingers… ugly aggravated callus on my left hand, caused by forming chords while having limited reach, due to my bent left arm (nursemaid’s elbow) and arthritic fingers… don’t mean to gross you out, but here’s a photo… I show it to kids who complain about sore fingers while I’m teaching them guitar… reviewed the chord sheets… took a little bit out of each song, to make the medley a little more manageable for my old brain… came up with the little instrumental interludes for moving within each song, and to the next song… memorized the chords and lyrics as I moved through the six-hour process of recording… 72 starts & stops, including stopping for one ambulance, one police car, one revved up motorcycle, and more than a few speeding and loud pickup trucks outside the church on Louetta… ultimately, it would have to been easier to just do a one-way medley… “Bridge Over Troubled Water” to “You’ve Got A Friend”, but I was determined…. stubbornly… to go back to “Bridge Over Troubled Water” for the ending… Here was the biggest challenge…. getting back to the tempo and key…. you’ll be able to tell I struggled with the transition back… I would have given it one more attempt, but my phone’s battery was at 3%, and it was rapidly heading towards Midnight… but hope you enjoy it… thanks for watching… comments are always appreciated…

Emile Champion - My Sweet Lady - John Denver - cover - 3/8/21 Well, it’s hard to believe this song, and the album “Poems, Prayers, & Promises” are 50 years old... or that I’m coming up on my 50th anniversary from high school graduation.... this is from 1971... still a beautiful song... by the way, I wrote the lyrics for a third Verse this week... my rendition ends with this Verse... let me know what you think... I don’t think anyone associated with this song will mind... hope you enjoy it... thanks for watching...
