Wat geeft Tabitha, mij een gevoel van een groot internationale klasse artiest te zijn.
Heel erg mooi gezongen...grote klasse echt.
Voor mij de winner van deze avond...sky high.

Dit is zo mooi vertolkt. Je kan zien dat ze zich in een liedje stort, alle info en achtergrond tot zich neemt en dan vertaalt in een muzikaal huzarenstukje en dan de " fijntuning in de muziek door de band maakt t compleet. Chapeau chapeau 👍

Heel erg mooi gezongen. Zoals Tabitha dit vertolkt: komt echt binnen bij mij ... Ik kende Tabitha niet, maar ik houd van haar stem en van haar uitstraling. Ze heeft echt klasse.

Stil. Ik ben hier stil van. Alsof ik in een bioscoop zat en mocht zien hoe het verleden van Tabitha/Milow een beetje van mij werd en hoe de toekomst voor me ligt. Dit nummer is een emotionele roadtrip langs de mooiste bezienswaardigheden van het leven.

Waanzinnige uitvoering!

Dit is zo goed! Hoe vaker je het luistert hoe mooier het wordt, de eerste keer dacht ik al wel dit is goed, maar na een paar keer werd het echt fantastisch

Although she doesn't change the words "son" to "girl" or "daughter" in this version Tabitha really makes it feel like she's talking about a father-daughter relationship and she succeeds (if you close your eyes) in almost transforming this song into a penultimate track of a musical where a former WNBA player/Hall of Famer is attending her daughter's first high school basketball game (perhaps in an upscale Chicago suburb) and reminiscing/reflecting on how her and father who bonded over basketball in their Rust Belt/Midwestern/Middle of America town (let's say Appleton, Wisconsin given its connections to Houdini another Milow track).

The father is a hard scrabble, stoic man who nevertheless watches the Chicago Bulls every night with his daughter during the 90s, introducing her to the sport of basketball. And, although he attends her own basketball games and sees her letter all four years of high school, win state championships and earn all-state honors never shows any emotion at her accomplishments. She then gets recruited to play at a top school in the big city (think Northwestern University in Chicago) and her father challenges her that she'll be back at home by Thanksgiving; that she won't be able to survive and succeed at college and she might as well just go get a job at the local Walmart.

She's driven to prove him wrong and although she's recruited as a walk-on, she makes it to the starting lineup and leads her team to the NCAA Final Four championship. She ends up travelling abroad for the first time in her life (only 30% of Americans hold passports) during her teams once-in-four-years allowable pre-season international trip (to the Benelux countries, of course) to play some exhibition games. She starts all four years of college and ends up getting drafted and having a Hall of Fame career in the WNBA and winning a few gold medals with the U.S. Olympic Team.

Her father, of course, passes on but she is now retired and has a teenage daughter of her own and watching her play in her first high school game after just making the team. She goes up for a layup, and she replays in her mind telling her daughter before the game (in a way her father never would've done) that's she proud of her. As her daughter goes up, she's yelling and cheering her on, smiling that she's been able to pass on that love of basketball that she had with her father to her daughter.

It's almost sacrilegious to say, but this version is on par with, and nearly surpasses, Milow's own live version where he pays tribute to Kobe Bryant (whom he saw play as a teenage) shortly after his passing earlier this year. An emotional knockout

I was 14 and losing ground
In a black top of a town
When no one wins and no one's leaving

My dad said "Son, just finish school
Because this world can be so cruel"
I said "You too" and kept on dreaming

I'm nothing like you, nothing like you
Why don't you know anything about me?
And I swear somehow I'll make you proud
But why you wanna always go and doubt me

Story of my life in 1995
A hero in Chicago, a legend in my mind
A million lonely nights
A million times I tried
To jump like Michael Jordan
But never quite as high

When I was 19 I ran so far
They couldn't catch me on the yard
I traveled unfamiliar places

My dad said "Son, just come back home
You won't survive out on your own
You're on a fast break running aimless"


But I'm nothing likе you, nothing like you
Why don't you believе I have the answers?
Oh and I swear somehow I'll make you proud
But why can't you just let me take my chances

Story of my life in 1995
A hero in Chicago, a legend in my mind
A million lonely nights
A million times I tried
To jump like Michael Jordan
But never quite as high

I'm 49, the game is mine
And every night is overtime
I beat the odds and I'm still playing

My dad has passed he's been long gone
I wish he'd met my teenage son
It's been harder than I thought to raise him

I'm just like you, so much like you
Silent as he's jumping for a layup
Oh but I'm so proud of him, I'm so proud
But just like you I'm still too scared to say it
So I'll say it now


Story of my life in 1995
A hero in Chicago, a legend in my mind
A billion lonely nights
A million times I tried
To jump like Michael Jordan

Story of my life in 1995
A hero in Chicago, a legend in my mind
A billion lonely nights
A million times I've tried
To jump like Michael Jordan

Hope you'll reach the sky
I hope you'll reach the sky
I hope you'll reach the sky

Story of your life in 1995
A hero in Chicago, you're a legend in my mind
