I hope you still feel small
when you stand beside the ocean
Whenever one door closes
I hope one more opens
Promise me you'll give faith
A fighting chance
And when you get the choice
To sit it out or dance
I hope you dance

I recently sat through a screening of Tyler Perry's "A Family That Preys". Neglecting the fact that that film was two hours of my life I will never get back, there was a nice surprise at the end. Gladys Knight was featured at the end doing a remake of Lee Ann Womack's "I Hope You Dance". I've loved this song for years and now Gladys has done an amazing reading of it. Every time I hear a version of the song, I get chills. For some reason the message in it resonates with me every single time. It's a well-written song and probably would be my favorite song ever. The soundtrack for "A Family That Preys" hasn't been released but I did find the Gladys Knight version that someone ripped for Youtube. Check it out:
