Jessie J is one of the most fantastic pop artists of our generation. Don’t believe me? Apart from the obvious list of number one hits that she has either sung or written for other artists, she has a work ethic and voice with few rivals. I’ve never seen her do a live performance that was less than perfect. Check out this song, she has the most original vocal technique and each melismata is sung with precision and innovation, I am full of admiration. I can’t think of another artist who has ever sounded anything like her, and that’s how I know she is an icon.
It is rumoured that the song was written about an experience Jessie J had as a young child when she was admitted to hospital for an irregular heartbeat and the boy opposite her was praying for his life but unfortunately passed away the next day.
