In this opening song, Jolina's steady voice rises over the heavypiano, accompanied with guitar and drums. Singing with the confidence of heryears in the field of music, her rendition of this song is testament to herbefriending the will of the wind.
In "When I Fall in Love," Jolina takes out the somber toneof the experience of falling in love with an upbeat rendition that can almost makethe listener dance. And this, she also does in her version of Fra Lippo Lippi's"Stitches and Burns."
