Stevie addresses Orlando, shares demo

Stevie Nicks has shared a special message and the demo of “Touched by an Angel,” in honor of those affected by the Orlando massacre.

Sometimes~ In a difficult situation, a song from the past will call out to me. Concerning what happened in Orlando~ I hope these words might be comforting to those involved. I dedicate “Touched by an Angel” to all those lost~ and all those left behind. I have included the original demo because it is my favorite version. This was my mother’s favorite song~

All my love,
Stevie Nicks

P.S.
I also send these words to Christina Grimmie~ and to her family, so sad…so very, very sad~ I am so sorry…

LISTEN: Stevie Nicks, Don Henley release new duet

Thirty-four years after they released their smash hit single ‘Leather and Lace,” Don Henley and Stevie Nicks reunite for a heartbreaking ballad.

Country singer Garth Brooks, assuming the fictitious Australian rock persona Chris Gaines, originally recorded the song for In the Life of Chris Gaines in 1999. Rosie Thomas recorded a version of the song for her album If Songs Could Be Held in 2005, as well as Glee alumnus Matthew Morrison, who covered the song in 2011.

Over the years, Stevie Nicks and Don Henley have sung together many times in the studio and on the stage. Their studio collaborations include the Top 5 hit “Leather and Lace” (1981), “The Highwayman” (1981), and “Reconsider Me” (1985). Nicks and Henley were romantically linked in the mid-1970s.

It Don’t Matter to the Sun

It don’t matter to the sun
If you go or if you stay
No, the sun is gonna rise, gonna rise
Shine down on another day
There will be a tomorrow
Even if you choose to leave
‘Cause it don’t matter to the sun, no, no
It matters to me

It ain’t gonna change the world
If you walk out that door
This old world will just keep spinnin’ ’round
Spinnin’ ’round
Like it did the day before
‘Cause to them it makes no difference
It just keeps on keepin’ time
It ain’t gonna stop the world, no, no
It’ll be the end of mine

What can I say
What can I do
I’m still in love
Why aren’t you

It don’t matter to the moon
If you’re not in my life
No, the moon will just keep hangin’ ’round
Hangin’ ’round
Like it’s just another night
You’ll find another place to shine down
On some other lover’s dreams
It don’t matter to the moon, no
It matters to me

It don’t matter to the moon, no, no
But it matters to me
