Good Mood Music: Like A Child

One of the singers I wish the spotlight had shone brighter and longer for is Tamyra Gray.

Tamyra was a contestant on American Idol back in its premiere season finishing 4th.

Following Idol, she released her debut album The Dreamer. It was a solid debut, lead by the single “Raindrops Will Fall.” But I’m going to focus on the unreleased song “Like A Child.”

Sometimes melancholy can be beautiful and this song reflects that. I especially love how she sings the bridge 3 different ways to get into the chorus. The first is done in an understated way; the second features a note that climbs like a staircase; and she fully belts out the third.

Nowadays, Tamyra keeps busy with her family and performing in musicals around the country, including on Broadway.
