A Note to God

Posted by Lakshmi

For the past 1  month or so, after updating my blog, I would log on to Youtube without  fail and watch a young teenager sing with all  her heart and soul    " A Note to God " .  And I'll keep replaying and replaying and replaying her debut on Oprah's talkshow . I never get fed up. It's that  unbelievable and awesome, her vocals , her  raw emotions and her performance .  Even Celine Dion, the only artist I think her weight is worth in gold, cannot, in my opinion, do what Charise Pempengco did with her ' A note to God' .  I  get goosepimples on my skin every time I watch  and hear her rendition of it .  She has performed her signature song all over the world and every one of her performance has received a standing ovation the world over.

It's one of  those feel good moments watching Charise, with her  very troubled childhood background,bring to life the essence of the song ' A note to God ' written by Diane Warren and helmed by the legendary David Forster.  And it is at these moments I feel thankful to God, for there's still Hope left in this world....

Although other singers have attempted this song before, no one beats Charise's rendition and if you watch her on the Oprah show,  you'll know what I mean - you just simply have to and I can guarantee you won't regret ever . The link is


Coupled with the beautiful lyrics and Charise's  powerful rendition, it simply takes my breath away and brings an undescribable feeling in my heart .  Consider the lyrics :

                        If  I wrote a Note to God
                        I would speak whats in my soul
                        I'd ask for all the hate to be swept away
                        For love to overflow

                        If I wrote a Note to God
                        I'll pour my heart out on each page
                        I'd ask for war to end
                        for peace to mend this world

                         I'd say, I'd say I'd say
                         Give us the strength to make it thru
                         Help us to find love cause love is overdue
                         N seems like so much is going wrong  on this road we're on

                         If I wrote a Note to God
                         I'd say please help us find our way,
                         End all the bitterness, put some tenderness in our hearts

                         I'd say, I'd say, I'd say
                         And it looks like we haven't got a clue
                         Need some help from you
                         Grant us the faith to carry on
                         Give us hope when it seems all hope is gone
                         Cause it seems like so much is going wrong
                          On this road we're on
                          We can't do this on our own......

Hope you'll feel the same as I did and still do...............
