What Music Can Do, Emma Stevens Singing “Blackbird”

When I first heard Emma Stevens who is 16 years old, sing “Blackbird” in her native Mi’kmaq language, I felt like I was hearing the song for the first time.

It was so beautiful and moving, I thought, that this is the way it was really meant to be sung, when Paul McCartney wrote it over 50 years ago.

I feel like that’s what music and art can do, go back and forth in time and move from place to place, till it touches us all.
