Happy Humpday Everyone! As some of you may know, it is Soul Music Wednesday! I truly believe soul music provides a spiritual experience for both the listener and vocalist alike. On Wednesdays, I like to share a featured love song and give my feedback on the record. Some of the songs will be old classics and others will be new favorites.
The song featured today is “Survivor” by Destiny’s Child. The song was written and produced by Beyonce Knowles and Anthony Dent. “Survivor” was released on February 13, 2001 and had great success, including charting just shy of the number one spot on the Billboard Hot 100. Here is a link to the song below…
Beyoncé says that this song was a defining moment in the career of Destiny’s Child, as with their success also came a great deal of negativity. The criticism encouraged her to “write them out of the negativity,” which is how she came up with this song.
I love the message of “Survivor”. It is anthem that has encouraged and uplifted millions of individuals to rise above negativity and never give up.
