Parish, who has lived in New York since the early 1990s, has collaborated with Grammy Award-winning writers and producer. Her claim to fame is singing backup for pop star Michael Jackson.
The 10-track album is sincere and heartfelt, but doesn't classify as a jazz album. Parish is more of a pop singer. In the opening track, "Outta Time," she explores her frustration with life in the music business (and life in general) and feels deeply personal. As the record unfolds,Parish shares about the importance of not worrying your life away in "The River" and tells of the profound love between fathers and daughters in "She Laughed."
"It Was Beautiful" would please any audience; however, it doesn't classify as a jazz album.
