Black Is The Colour by ERICA JENNINGS
One of the biggest stars of the Lithuanian music scene, Irish singer Erica Jennings has released her new song “Black is The Colour”.
“It’s one of the most beautiful songs I have ever heard and it instantly captured my heart. I had a feeling that I would sing it in honour of a truly special moment in my life and I did”, – explained the singer, who has dedicated this song to her husband Jurgis, in celebration of their 10 year marriage anniversary. “Dedicated to Jurgis, my husband, my love, in this life, in lives before and in lives after”– Erica Jennings
The most interesting fact about this song is its mysterious history. There is no record of who originally wrote the song. It was heard and mentioned for the first time in Appalachian Mountains back in 1915 in the USA. However, it is believed that this song originated in Scotland, as the River Clyde is mentioned in the lyrics.
It has also been recorded by Nina Simone and Irish Singer Christy Moore.
“I started to sing it live last spring and I could see how this song immediately touched people. Even hearing it for the first time, people were drawn to listen to it” Erica Jennings
