Turn The World Around – Harry Belafonte
Posted by Mitch Mitchell on Jan 30, 2008
I love almost anything Muppets. I’ll admit that I didn’t get into the Fraggles, but if Kermit and his buddies were involved, it was all good.
Of course, like most things, we all have our favorite stuff, and one thing that stands out in my mind was an awesome performance by Harry Belafonte that closed out one show, called Turn The World Around. It was such an amazing performance that not only did they continue playing the song throughout the closing credits, which never happened in any other show, but Harry Belafonte performed the song at Jim Henson’s funeral. Now that’s a powerful song.
So, I post it here for your enjoyment and inspiration; if you can’t feel anything from this one, you have no emotions.
