We need to protect this 9th wonder of the world. Put her ass in a bubble and lock her up in a safe deposit box or something. Geesshh she cold ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ˜

She should have left this song alone.. sorry.. itโ€™s not for everyone!!!!????..Not enough SOUL… jmo.. NOBODY CAN TOUCH HIS DAUGHTER LALA WITH THIS SONG!!!

Rest easy dearest Donny Hathaway. I automatically cry when hearing one of his songs. He was there when I was at my lowest. Iโ€™m forever grateful for his music and voice.

I've been so many places in my life and time
I've sung a lot of songs
I've made some bad rhymes
I've acted out my life in stages
With ten thousand people watching
But we're alone now
And I'm singing this song to you
I know your image of me is what I hoped to be
I treated you unkindly
But darling can't you see
There's no one more important to me
Baby can't you see through me?
'Cause we're alone now and I'm singing this song to you
You taught me precious secrets
Of a true love
You wanted nothing
You came out in front
When I was hiding
But now I'm so much better
And if my words don't come together
Listen to the melody
'Cause my love is in there hiding
I love you in a place
Where there's no space or time
I love you for my life
You're a friend of mine
And when my life is over
Remember when we were together
We were alone
And I was singing this song to you
I love you in a place
Where there's no space or time
I love you for my life
You're a friend of mine
And when my life is over
Remember when we were together
We were alone and I was singing this song to you
We were alone
And I was singing this song to you
We were alone and I was singing this song
Singing this song to you

I know when anyone sing this song it make think when I thought I had it all and I see that don't.I wish that he love me the way I love him but who would know I was not that one he wanted sad for me.

I'm here because her is so awesome and talented..me n my 9 year old daughter just watched a video of her on good day la..i believe..playing her piano and singing at 10 years old!!! She has been a star and has been very blessed..i told my daughter anything is possible when you follow your dreams..and stick to your goals.

sooo many memories yall ……I grew up in the best time and generation……neva trade for other generation….yass

Just learned about her 5 minutes ago… I must have been under a rock because I officially am obsessed. watching her parents support from her young days until now makes me cry. Googling every song I can right now

This is amazing. Thank you for honoring Amy in your set. I miss her everyday, but you gave that a new sound. Love you ๐Ÿ˜˜ and keep being amazing you!

I LOVE SWV.. Always had a crush on Coco. Them suits tho Smh Remind me of "Nights like This I wish Raindrops would fall" ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

New French fan here!! Damn, she's GOOD!! How effortless when she covered A Song For You!! Amazing! I wonder which version I prefer now! Her's (lol), Lalah's, or Donny's… And then Shai abd SWV wow!!! What a treat!!

I luv how musically talented this young Sistar is!!! The fact that she can actually play instruments/read music is absolutely impressive in this time of young folks thinking all they need to be able to do is rhyme holla in front of a mic and twerk on stage which is why they call themselves "artists" instead of musicians. Cuz they can't play sh#t let alone read music. This sistah can do all —- play multiple instruments, sing, write and read music. So proud of her for being an actual music-artist! And she got style too!

she loved Prince's music and style… he would have collaborated with her. Dope๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’œโ˜ฎ

come through then SWV ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ™๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿพ

This is one of the best versions of A Song for You with Donny Hathaway and Amy Winehouse!! H.E.R is a gift to this industry. I'm so lucky that I got to see her in live performance.

I'm an Alicia fan but pleeeeaaasse stop saying her sounds like her. Vocally that's a huge compliment to Alicia lol. Only similarity is they sing and play piano in the same/similar genre.

I like Whitney Houston's version of this song live to Donny Hathaway song but this young artists does a good job too of doing it justice
