A Song That Makes Me Happy – Believe In Yourself by Lena Horn (from The Wiz)
If you haven’t seen The Wiz you are totally missing out. Take The Wizard of Oz and add the 70’s, Diana Ross, Michael Jackson, Richard Pryor, Mabel King, Lena Horn, Nipsey Russell and the great Quincy Jones and – BAM! – you have The Wiz. It was made in the 70’s and everyone is rockin’ sweet afros. It’s AWESOME! The soundtrack is one of my all time favorites.
Lena Horn is Glinda the good witch. She only appears for this one song and she freakin’ kills it. It is so moving and so mindblowing. Every time I watch it I start crying from sheer happiness. Love this song!!!
