If you could talk to a younger you what would you say?

I recently had the pleasure of interviewing the lovely and amazingly talented Michelle John on my show "The Writer's Block" she is one the most amazing vocalists from the UK. She has performed with some of the greatest artists we know like: Mariah Carey, Elton John, George Michael, Lenny Kravitz, Tom Jones, Whitney Houston and Sheryl Crow. She is currently on tour with Eric Clapton but took time to hang out with me to talk about her EP "Little Me" and her future plans. By the way her "Little Me" EP is great. It was recorded totally live and is smashing. Download it from itunes, amazon and all digital stores.



I heard a song she did called "Little Me" which is actually the title track from the EP she released which funnily enough is her first personal release after being in the industry for a long time and recording with many of the greatest artists. In fact me interviewing her was her first solo radio interview ever which blew my mind considering the fact that she is well known and respected in the music business! I mean she has been the vocal tutor for many pop artists like, Rita Ora, Razorlight , Girl’s Aloud, Atomic Kitten, Liberty X, Mis-Teeq, Bryan Mc Fadden,Westlife and many others!

She told me in the interview that she almost left the song off the EP because she felt it was too personal. All I can say is I am glad that she didn't leave it off the EP. This video of her singing it live is the actual version on the EP so it is raw and real without any editing.



I was so moved by this song that I found myself sampling the track and making a beat and in no time writing a couple of verses. Michelle John described her song "Little me" this way: "If i could have a conversation with me at 9 yrs old this is what i'd say". So I ended up writing to young nova. I recorded it and it came out like this:




lyrics

I recently heard a song called (little me)
A song by Michelle called (little me)
I sampled this song called (little me)
And wrote a letter to (little me, little me)

I recently heard a song called (little me)
A song by Michele John called (little me)
I was moved so much by song
That I wrote a little letter to (little me, little me)

Please don't belittle me, peep my soliloquy
I'd say this if I could have a chat with little me
You're gonna feel let down and feel abandoned
don't be afraid you're gonna make it and still be standing
You're a skinny kid but you fill out and stay handsome
And you have a sense of humour that is quite random
You already know you're from a broken home
But much later you're gonna feel broken and all alone
You're a quiet kid but later you make noise
You're gonna bring a lot of people joy
You have long fingers you should have learnt the piano
But you're still musical you make beats now I know
In your teens you're gonna face pain
But deep in your pain you're gonna find faith
You're gonna hear a song by Michelle John
And with these lyrics is how you will respond

Please don't belittle me, peep my soliloquy
I'd say this if I could have a chat with little me
You're a love child born out of wedlock
Low self esteem will have you in a headlock
But you grow strong enough to break the deadlock
You find hip hop and learn to make heads nod
In primary 4 you will have you first crush
You learn to chat up ladies and make 'em blush
You're always gonna be thoughtful and introspective
Very early you learn to be reflective
At some point you're gonna feel neglected
You overcome suicidal thoughts that are hectic
In your teens you're gonna face pain
But deep in your pain you're gonna find faith
You're gonna hear a song by Michelle John
And with these lyrics is how you will respond

If you could have a conversation with a younger you, what would YOU say?
