Gracie Bryant Sings “One Hand In My Pocket”
In the darkest days of COVID-19 in Italy, neighbors sung on their porches to entertain and inspire their neighbors.
In anticipation of Charlotte SHOUT! later this year, we’re asking Charlotte musicians to film themselves performing songs within earshot of the neighbors. In this edition of “SHOUTing from the Rooftops,” 13-year-old musical theater up-and-comer Gracie Bryant gives us her take on Alanis Morissette’s “One Hand In My Pocket.” She’s been singing for her neighbors to keep them entertained … and now she sings for us.
If Gracie’s song makes you smile or gives you some hope today, please tip her through Venmo: @JenniferBryant64
Why Gracie chose this song
“I wanted to sing out loud because I believe music can still bring us together, even though we are physically apart. Music brings me happiness and I just want to share that! I picked this song, One Hand in my Pocket by Alanis Morrisette, because it is a great reminder to still look on the bright side, even though things are tough. Everything you are feeling is ok because, well, “no one’s really got it figured out just yet”, and we have to believe that ‘everything is going to be fine, fine, fine’ …!” – Gracie Bryant
