Over the past few weeks, 1000 singers from across the globe — professional and amateur alike — answered Judy Collins’ call to sing “Amazing Grace” with her as a sign of solidarity in this unprecedented time.

This new version of Judy’s historic recording is out now, and Alan Cumming, Judith Owen, Steve Earle, Madeleine Peyroux, Mandolin Orange, and Tift Merritt — plus internationally known choirs like The Sixteen, New York Choral Society, Voices International, and GOA University Choirare — are just some of the singers who participated in this Global Virtual Chorus event.


“I recorded ‘Amazing Grace’ with a group of friends at Saint Paul’s Chapel on the Columbia University campus in New York City,” Collins recalls. “When my recording was released, it became enormously popular all over the world.

Rick Keene Music Scene – Top Ten Mick Jagger Solo Songs

Does one half of a Glimmer Twin glimmer?

Mick Jagger is the greatest front-man in Rock n Roll history. Nobody can combine all the nuances and different vocal styles while dancing, playing harp and guitar.

According to Keith Richards – ‘Mick is a wonderful bunch of guys …”

When the front-man of The Rolling Stones can put out solo songs that outdo the amount of quality songs by most modern day artists half his age, it is safe to say Michael Phillip Jagger will go down as one of the greatest songwriters in music history.

Please listen to the Top Ten Mick Jagger solo songs below.
