Review by Pat Joseph & Staff
The W.A M. Awards celebrate the year’s most outstanding independent artists from around the world in multiple genres and categories. "Best Song" and "Best Album" nominations were based on Artistry, Musicianship, Originality, Professionalism, Diversity, and Excellence. W.A.M. stands for "We Are the Music Makers.' Art Twanghar's "She is Everything ft. Élan Noelle " was the 2020 W.A.M. Award Winner for Best Song in the Adult Contemporary music category.
“She is Everything” is a sweeping, cinematic statement that immediately catches the listener’s ear and demands attention. The song begins with solo piano, establishing an emotional tone with occasional bursts of baroque-like embellishment that serve to foreshadow the musical climaxes to come. During verses, the powerful vocals of Élan Noelle are accompanied by a dense and momentous string arrangement and understated, sustained percussive accents. These elements combine to create a vivid, dramatic effect. The impactful chorus, which utilizes piano, strings and choicely harmonized vocals, inject the lyrical content of the song with a powerfully contemplative tone.
Lyrically, this song is an inspirational call to action. It pulls no punches about the dire state of environmental affairs in which the human race finds itself, and demands awareness as well as positive change. “She is the air that we breathe, She is the food that we eat, giving us life everyday, we can’t afford to turn our backs.” The song condemns division on this issue “all this hate is killing us…let’s just leave our differences aside.”
The dynamic layering of sonic textures throughout this song is expertly done. The arrangement builds to an epic sound almost immediately and then uses subtle instrumental shifts to keep the energy high enough to justify the huge lyrical message packaged within. A show-stopping vocal performance, along with a state of the art dramatic instrumental arrangement make this song worthy of the crucial message it delivers and the award it won.
