To stop a deliciously painful relationship…To stop taking the roller coaster of failed projects…or to stop performing while someone’s actually great at what they do.
Stopping here doesn’t mean defeat, giving up or letting go…it means to win self-respect, to gain more value and to experiment new more suitable passions of life.
Maybe Fairouz, the one and only, who has one of the most unique voices of the last century and the contributor to the most special musical school in the middle east should have really thought about leaving her musical legacy as perfect as it is without the most recent contribution…an album that contained great music, and great techniques that didn’t manage to hide the age related crack in her amazing singing ability.
To have an ongoing passion for music never means standing on stage trying to minimize the singing range of the phrases because it is not attainable any more.
To live the passion fully till the very last breath sometimes means limiting the disclosure and enjoying the satisfaction of sharing a kind of art that will live as long as humans will ever live…
Fairouz, of course can sing…a lot better than any of our current singers…but when had she ever competed with others?!!
She is the one, and the only competition really is between herself now and herself a few years back.
The glowing star will forever shine if left up in the sky…but if it would fall on earth it would turn into a burnt out stone…
