“I feel like it’s my responsibility on this planet to bring joy and healing to others with my singing,” says Lindsay Solo of her relationship to music. This trained vocalist released her debut album, Love Reimagined, on July 30. Her music is shaped by emotions, sincerity, and feelings of wonder. With a voice similar to a mix of Celine Dion and Ariana Grande, she gives her powerful voice to her personal versions of songs that mean something to her. She says “I have personally chosen each song on Love Reimagined, picking the songs that have touched me the most throughout my life’s journey in love. There’s nothing more epic than the emotion of love.”
While each song is moving and raw, perhaps one of her best is her take on Christina Perri’s “A Thousand Years.” While Christina’s is moving on it’s own, Lindsay’s version of the song adds her own emotions. You can hear in her version how it’s made her feel, how it’s affected her life.
This rendition is more gospel-like with a hint of pop and musical theatre components when we reach the climax of the song. She gives this sense that you could see her performing this piece, almost making it more intimate than the original. It’s softer, yet it packs a punch. She’s backed by a choir, elevating the song further by giving her power. It brings out the emotion in the song that she’s trying to convey.
Love Reimagined offers a variety of covers that she maximizes to the fullest extent. She offers a different perspective in each one that you wouldn’t get in the originals, “A Thousand Years” being one of them. I would put it on any playlist. The album was released on July 30 and you can’t go wrong with any of the songs. Be sure to give it a listen on Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon Music, and Bandcamp.
