Queen Mary J Performance of the day...Take Me As I Am

May 1, 2010

First off, let me start off by saying it took me MONTHS to find this performance, The day I watched this  I couldn't believe it. I was speechless, this performance was VERY moving and emotional, probably the best live vocal of this song. I personally feel this is much better than the original studio version. The runs, moans, & the falsetto in this performance all blend so well.

I remember being at a point in my life where I would consider what others thoughts about me. I've always been the type to figure things out on my own, I'll come up with a successful method to help me handle whatever that situation was at that time. Around this era I was in my early years of college and it was a new environment. I didn't know how to react to it, I tried to create a few methods to help me, but all methods fail. When the video to this song came out I payed the song more attention, It was a success on the R&B charts peaking at #3, but stayed on that chart for over a year. I used this song as a teacher, I listened, and instilled the message in my heart, which taught me to never give up on myself, be confident, & be strong in my walk & talk.
