This week Jenn Bostic celebrates her 35th birthday, not a name too many of you will be familiar with.
She is an American country music from Nashville and best remembered in the UK for her song Jealous of the Angels which had its first play by Simon Bates on his Our Tune slot when he was on Smooth radio.
2020 was a pretty rubbish year for many, many people and I was no exception. I lost my best friend Larry on 1st April and my lovely father on 29th November at the age of 85. I’m going to play this song for my father because the words are so appropriate and Jenn wrote and recorded it after losing her father.
The words are beautiful especially the line, ‘In a world where heroes come and go, well God just took the only one I know’ – that’s for you dad.
I can’t believe that song never made the chart- probably too good for it was it was released in 2012. I hope anyone in a similar situation finds comfort in this song.
Here’s to 2021 – it just has to be better than last year.
