Lyrics
I have a voice
Listen to my voice
In this world, you have a choice
Choose to hear my voice
Choose to hear my voice.

I have power deep inside
Through eons and eras, undenied
Listen, learn, feel my strength
Feel the depth through your life's length
I have a voice

I have a voice
Listen to my voice
In this world, you have a choice
Choose to hear my voice
Choose to hear my voice.


No one can harm me
Nor can they disarm me
Past and present, I am whole
I create my life's role
I have a voice

I have a voice
Listen to my voice
In this world, you have a choice
Choose to hear my voice
Choose to hear my voice.

Hear me, hear me, hear me...

So strong...
A reaffirming, torchy song. I love the contrast between the
strong lead vocals and the quieter more restrained BVs.
This is a great, big, tear-welling, arm-waving, lighter-
holding emotional song and I'm very impressed. Congrats.

I'm piggy-backing off mando because I agree with what he said. There is
something very touching about this piece Joanna. Songs like this one are why
I keep coming back to this site (plus I'm addicted, but that's another story,
one that perhaps mando can tell in a future Observer piece.)

So strong...
Thank you, Tom! I had my doubts about it because I feared the message
would be misunderstood. To my delight, that appears not to be the case at
all.

Thank you, Mando! And thank you for the pep talk when I wondered if I
should post this or not.

And what a voice it is!

Great to hear you branching out and trying new things,
Joanna. (But look who's saying that, lol)
I like the easy-going, almost 'gospel' vibe going on here in
this song.

And you're singing 'ooohs!' What's next...ahhhhhs?
Cool! :)

And what a voice it is!
Thank you, Mystie! It does have a bit of a gospel flavor. Actually, one way to
interpret the lyrics could be that it's the voice of God, though in my mind it's
about taking back and acknowledging your own individual power.

Yes you have the voice!
This song reminds me Nina Simone
Your vocal is warm and energetic.
All I can say is great!

Empowering
What a great, empowering, affirming song, Joanna! I love
the lyrics, the music and your voice. It supports all of us in
our quest to stand firm, unafraid, in who we are.

Strong Voice
Joanna your voice is very strong here and draws the
listener in. I hear a gospel, Carol King kind of thing going
on here. An anthemic ride on the positive side of life.

Empowering  
What an uplifting song. Very moving and motivating. Very soothing. You ARE strong. Confident vocals. I especialy like the humming you do and all the different octaves you sing in. A great, positive song to help set my head straight. Thanks Joanna, you're the best!

Nice Change of pace
Good direction ! I'ts only natural for you to step into a more
gospel tinged type track. I like the steps.

Hey Joanna
This is great, a new direction for your vocals.. I like it.
Great lyrics. I like the Backing vox too.
I would like to hear this fattened up a bit with some more
instrumentation to support your wonderful voice.

Nice one Joanna.

Hi, I'm Joanna (not Jo, that's someone else). Garageband has allowed me to indulge my love for singing beyond concerts in the shower. My favorite part of songwriting is writing the lyrics. This makes sense, of course, because writing is what I d... [see more]
