Other artists might be concerned over being so associated with grief - not Bostic, it appears. "As a new artist it doesn’t worry me that fans are relating to this one song, because they’re connecting with me personally. I wish I’d written the song in time to play it at my dad’s funeral. I didn’t – I was too young – but I have so many emails telling me that’s where people initially heard it – at a funeral. If someone gains comfort and healing through it, well, that’s why I’m doing this.”
At Singers for Funerals, we often sing in a service where recorded favourite songs are also played particularly as people leave the church or crematorium. It gives a lovely combination of live singing and favourite artists performing the songs that (usually) made them famous.
And the most requested 'classic' song of all? Ol' Blue Eyes and "My Way".
