Alyvia Alyn Lind is one of the lucky youngsters who get to play a living icon. This girl could act and sing like any other country artist in Nashville and so this duet with Dolly Parton just brings the angelic voices we needed to get through the day.
Coat of Many Colors, Dolly Parton
One of the things that stand out in the TV movie, Coat of Many Colors is “Angel Hill” which is the video on top of this article. Dolly Parton revealed in an interview by Home and Family about how she came up with this very powerful song. Parton explained:
“A big portion of the movie was based on us losing one of my little brothers. There were so many of us, we were being born right after another, so Mama would always tell one of the older ones, ‘Well, this baby’s gonna be yours,’ because that meant we’d have to take extra time, get up and rock it or whatever. The baby Mama was carrying was gonna be my baby and when I was her age, I was nine, so, we lost that baby and I was so brokenhearted.”
Dolly Parton’s mini-me, Alyvia Alyn Lind also took part of the said song to be used as a soundtrack in the said movie. Indeed, it was effective to give people a tear-jerking experience just by listening to the song’s lyrics. In another interview, Lind profoundly explained how she relates so much with Dolly Parton:
“Well, Dolly had so little when she was about my age. She didn’t have that much, she didn’t have a lot of money. She didn’t have a lot, so now that she has so much, I mean, she’s an American icon and the reason that she is who she is today is because of her family and because of her family that supported her dreams. When she was little, all she believed — and I think this is so true — that you can be rich in things, but it’s so much important to be rich in love, to be rich in hope, to be rich in everything else. You can be rich in money, but it’s so much better to be rich in all of these other things.”
We could not agree more little Dolly.
