Queen Elizabeth II has Died – BBC News

Queen Elizabeth II, the UK’s longest-serving monarch, has died at Balmoral aged 96, after reigning for 70 years. She died peacefully on Thursday afternoon at her Scottish estate, where she had spent much of the summer.

The Queen came to the throne in 1952 and witnessed enormous social change. Her son King Charles III said the death of his beloved mother was a “moment of great sadness” for him and his family and that her loss would be “deeply felt” around the world. He said: “We mourn profoundly the passing of a cherished sovereign and a much-loved mother.”

Jackie Evancho – Both Sides Now


Both Sides Now was one of my favorite coming of age songs.  The tune and lyrics by Joni Mitchell are still mesmerizing and this artist delivered it perfectly.  I’ve long been in awe of singers who can control their vibrato — hold a note (or change notes) with no vibrato — and then lightly introduce it at the end of a phrase.  Right now this is my favorite artist and song.
