Speaking of Jim Henson…..

I really love Evan Rachel Wood! I love her voice when she speaks as much as when she sings and boyo can she sing!! As with her ability to be an excellent character actor she’s not locked into a certain singing style/genre either. I heard her sing as a child so soft and sweet, and in recent years belt out a Janis Joplin tune to almost rival The Great Pearl herself. It’s kind of silly but I have a whole playlist in my head that Evan would sound awesome singing. My special favorite one on that playlist is the song called “I’ve been loving you too long” by Otis Redding  Yeah, I think that’s definitely an item for the old ‘bucket list’ for me to hear her sing that song!

Now, if you’ve never heard Evan sing, take a moment and listen to this – it’s my favourite song I’ve heard her do thus far. You will be glad you did!

 

See there! I knew you would like it! If it wasn’t painfully obvious before, I must admit that I have an odd crush on Ms Wood, and no, not like sexual, it’s just that, well, she makes me proud and very hopeful that more of our future youth will be as open-minded, outspoken and honest about their views, who they are and where their place is in this world we live in, as she is. Oh and did I mention she can act like awesome x infinity?! It’s all there you can see the 100% she gives in all she does right there on her face, the expressions, so honest, real – like she’s not acting at all..

So what does ANY of this have to do with Jim Henson, you ask?? Well, Evan loves the late great Mr Henson (especially Labyrinth) and since this just seems to be the week for LGBTQ supporters to appreciate the legacy of Jim Henson and his wonderful company why not combine two very awesome and LGBTQ supporters in one blog entry.

Once Upon A Time a brave man lead a pilgrimage to a new land, so why not do it again, it only takes a dash of love and a pinch of courage. EOT.
