The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 187

내게 변치 않는 건 나의 가슴속에 살아 숨 쉬고 있다는걸
The one thing that doesn’t change
is that you are breathing as you live in my heart.

Okay…..I love this line in Nassun and G.O’s digital single One. What is even better is that the line is delivered vocally by G.O and not buried in one of Nassun’s rap stanzas in the song. Nothing against rap…no, I am totally amenable to it, especially when it is being intertwined, encircled and embraced by G.O’s sweet voice. That line is simply one that aches for a sweet voice to sing it, even if not contained in a ballad, but in a pop/rap tune. G.O is the perfect choice and probably only sounded sweeter in Damiano’s No Diet or MBLAQ’s You’re My A+.

[series] 116 Reasons to Love Byung Hee: #11 ~ It Takes Deux


Duet. A performance by two people, especially singers. Two voices locked in perfect harmony, emotion and delivery. But, it is more than that. In a July 2012 interview with ABC News about sharing the stage with another vocalist in a duet, R&B singer Robin Thicke summed it up nicely when he said:

“It’s not about singing with perfect pitch or timing, it’s about feeling. All art is supposed to create feeling and if you sing with passion and you sing from your soul then people will feel it.”

People will feel it. I think he was talking about G.O, right? There is perhaps no truer way to describe the type of vocalist G.O set out to become and thus accomplished: A vocalist who sings with passion from the soul. Indeed. It may seem that all of the passion, emotion and feeling he brings to a song could not possibly be tempered (or matched) when partnered in a duet. I assure you, however, there is something special about the way G.O settles into a duet and lends his passion, emotion and feeling to the dynamic. For me, this is yet another reason to love this very talented man and his incredible artistry as a vocalist.
