    I just, did not like her voice, good on her for doing this at her age and everything though.

    What did you think?

    I didn't see it, but I probably wouldn't have liked it.

    Pressed_Rat Do you even lift, bruh?

    She was good in her time. She does (or rather DID) have a great voice.

    yeah exactly, when i hears she was going to sing i was looking forward to it, but i have to say i was really dissapointed.

    i wish people would go out of fame with dignity.

    she blamed it on the cold.

    I think shes just old.

    and obviously senile to wear a hat like that.

    The song brought tears to my eyes... but then I don't shudder with revulsion when I hear gospel. It was very heartfelt. She put her soul into it.
    I thought the hat was cute. She's old. Old women wear big hats. It's just something you do when you become an old lady. My crazy Italian grandma has a gaudy Easter bonnet she wears every year. I can only hope that I will have one that's half as gaudy as that. :p

    Did she really sing it or was it lip-synced like Milli Vanilli? Considering what happened with Yo-Yo Ma, anything could happen. :)
