Music Monday: “Stand by Me”-Tracy Chapman

When I previewed this song on iTunes I immediately bought it. Tracy Chapman is talented, with a capital “T.” Her take is sad, but it’s also very soulful and uplifting.

The original, sung by Ben E. King, has been covered numerous times and Chapman performed her version in 2015, during one of David Letterman’s last episodes. The video has over 3 million views for a reason–it’s beautiful.
