I caught about 3 songs of it. The music was *very* different than her CD. This was just her and a guitar. On one of the songs, sorry I don't know the name...she had so much emotion behind it that her voice cracked like 4 times. I think she was really feelin' what she was singing. I'll have to hear the songs again to really understand what she was trying to say in them, I couldn't hear them with too much noise inside my house :)
From the very very little I saw, I was impressed.

yeh i know i heard the emotion was really apparent there

and apparently she cried on one of the songs!

she has shown us that she is just like us

musicians are just people like me and u

they have emotions and she has been thru so much of late

and the emotion has created the amazing music..

thumbs up

did u hear the songs with or without the rapping seles?

The only one I could actually *hear* (less all the noise that people had to be makin) was very very slow and very very moving. I don't know the name, but it was the one that she was nearly in tears in. Her voice was like quivering or cracking even she was so caught up in the lyrics. That song alone was remarkable. I just wish I knew the name so I could get the mp3.

i think i know what song u r talking about

or "WATER"

yeh that is the one she cries in

i think from wat u have said that "WATER" is the one ur talking about

that is a moving song!
people say it is about her daughter SELAH
and about her new found inner peace

apparently MTV recieved a lot of complaints from angry viewers in San fran and alot of other places because they reported the time of the unplugged incorrectly

everyone set up their VCRs and TVs fro 8 pm and apprently music videos came on

maybe thats why some of u missed it and u in particular MOON

that is a HUGE bummer
