“When Somebody Loves You”
The song is written and recorded by Alan Jackson and was released in March 2001. The song received a favorable review from the Billboard Magazine saying that the singer’s warm-throated delivery turns into a treasure.
The song is encouraging us about opening up and letting love come in. That love has an amazing power that can help you get through in life.
When we feel loved, the whole world seems to be brighter. It feels like there’s a huge positive transformation happening in our bodies.
Love is felt when someone shows compassion toward us in difficult times, when a child snuggles up to us, when our pets are happy to see us or when someone tells us “I love you.”
When we know how it is to be loved it pains to see others being a grinch and the best way is to help them open up. This song by Alan Jackson is another brilliant way to encourage people to love!
