Simple
kd lang
Listen to the audio file Here

Flawless light in a darkening air
Alone...and shining there
Love will not elude you
Love is simple


I worship this tenacity
And the beautiful struggle we’re in
Love will not elude us
Love is simple


Be sure to know that
All in love
Is ours


And love, as a philosophy
Is simple

I am calm in oblivion
Calm, as I ever have been
Love will not elude me
Love is simple
Be sure to know that
All in love
Is ours...
Is ours...

That all in love
Is ours
And love, as a philosophy
Is simple...
And ours...

Up Close and Personal:

k.d. lang   (2 Nov 1961)
née Kathryn Dawn Lang

"Few singers command such perfection of pitch. Her voice, at once beautiful and unadorned and softened with a veil of smoke, invariably hits the middle of a note and remains there. She discreetly flaunted her technique, drawing out notes and shading them from sustained cries into softer, vibrato-laden murmurs. She balanced her commitment to the material with humor, projecting a twinkling merriment behind it all."1 - a brilliant summation of kd lang's talent by Stephen Holden of the NY Times!

KD Lang is a  Grammy Award-winning Canadian [from Alberta] singer and songwriter who has wowed her audiences over the years with her songbird-like voice and the variability of the range of her music (rock, country, rockabilly, honky tonk, pop, blues).

She was initially drawn to country music out of a fascination with the music of Patsy Cline, formed a band which reinterpreted this style of music, and raised eyebrows (but got a fan following) with her tongue-in-cheek onstage performances.  In 1985, kd was named the Most Promising Female Vocalist by Juno and she made good on that award by earning 8 more Juno Awards in the years to come.

Other merits include: winning the Grammy Award for Best Female Country Vocal Performance for her 1989 album, Absolute Torch and Twang; a #1 hit in Canada with the single "Full Moon of Love"; multi-million dollar sales of "Constant Craving" from the  album Ingénue in 1992 and the Grammy Award for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance; chosen  "Woman of the Year" by Chateleine magazine; ranking #33 on VH1's 100 Greatest Women in Rock & Roll in 1999 and #26 on CMT' 40 Greatest Women in Country Music in 2002 (one of only seven women

"In 2007 she will be partnering with Anne Murray on a re-make of Murray's hit "A Love Song," to be featured on Murray's CD Anne Murray Duets: Friends and Legends." "Anne Murray was Lang's childhood idol." "She is due to release an album of new material, Watershed in February 2008. It will be her first collection of original material since Invincible Summer in 2000."
