Blige’s memorable rendition of Elton John’s “Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word” brings powerful feelings of releasePhilip MerrillGRAMMYs Apr 6, 2018 – 4:50 pm GRAMMY winner Mary J. Blige has shaped contemporary R&B on the highest level. On April 6 the Elton John tribute album Revamp was released, and her reshaping of his classic “Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word” gives the song a soulful treatment that feels like it was waiting to be uncovered.”I specifically chose to sing ‘Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word’ because of how beautiful and sad the song is and it was also so cathartic for me to sing,” Blige explained to Billboard.Blige says her participation in the tribute album “is special to me not only because [Elton] is a good friend of mine but also because of my love for his songwriting and amazing songs.””Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word” was the breakout hit on John’s 1976 LP, Blue Moves, the last album in his initial series of collaborations with lyricist Bernie Taupin before they took a creative hiatus. Beyond being a break-up song, “Sorry …” seems to freeze a moment in time, hold an emotion and reinforce how letting it go through expression allows a person to move forward.Summing up the long-running partnership between John and Taupin, Blige commented, “Elton and Bernie’s songs, so inspiring and powerful, will continue to stand the test of time.”Be sure to tune in to “Elton John: I’m Still Standing — A GRAMMY Salute” on April 10 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on CBS. The two-hour concert special will feature performances by some of music’s biggest names, including Ed Sheeran, Alessia Cara, Miley Cyrus, Kesha, Lady Gaga, Miranda Lambert, John Legend, Little Big Town, Maren Morris, Sam Smith, SZA, and many more.

BREAKING NEWS Peggy Kane Resigns From Wilmington School Committee

first_imgWILMINGTON, MA — Longtime Wilmington School Committee member Peggy Kane has resigned.The announcement was made at the end of last night’s School Committee meeting, when Chair Julie Broussard read a letter from Kane, who was not present at the meeting.“Due to recent events in my life, I find it necessary to relinquish my position on the Wilmington School Committee effective June 13, 2018,” wrote Kane. “My time on the School Committee has been truly gratifying. I enjoyed being part of the education of Wilmington’s children. Thank you.”Kane was the School Committee’s stalwart, serving for nearly 18 years, including as Chair from 2007 to 2016.  The Massachusetts Association of School Committees previously honored Kane with its “All-State School Committee” award for her dedication and accomplishments as a member of the Committee.Kane had previously announced she would not seek re-election when her current term expired in April 2019.School Committee Chair Julie Broussard told her colleagues she will speak with Town Clerk Sharon George regarding the procedure to fill the unexpected vacancy.According to School Committee policy — based on Massachusetts General Law (Title 7, Chapter 41, Section 11) — the remaining six members of the School Committee and the five members of the Board of Selectmen share the responsibility for finding Kane’s replacement.The policy reads:“The School Committee will notify the Selectmen that a vacancy has been created within 30 days after it has occurred. After one week’s notice has been given by the Committee to the Selectmen, so that voters of the town may have the opportunity to state their candidacy, the two governing bodies will meet to fill the vacancy by roll call vote.”“For election to fill a vacancy, a candidate must receive a majority of the votes of the officers entitled to vote. The person so elected will fill the seat on the Committee until the next town election, at which time a member will be elected to serve the remainder of the term.”It is expected that the Selectmen and School Committee will hold a joint meeting within the next 4-5 weeks to fill the vacancy. There will be 9-10 months remaining in Kane’s unexpired term when the appointment is made.Back in 2005, when the Selectmen and School Committee met under similar circumstances to fill a vacancy on the School Committee, it did not go smoothly.Like Wilmington Apple on Facebook.
