Caroline Pennell - "Yellow (Coldplay Cover)"
I honestly hadn’t heard of Caroline Pennell before, and it wasn’t until today, driving to work when her delicate cover of this song, both inventive and yet still an homage to the original, that I sat up and took notice. She’s got a specific sound, but she’s an interesting artist who definitely deserves some attention.
Pennell was born in 1995, and is the eldest of Bonnie and Keith Pennell's four children. Pennell cited that music was a huge part of her childhood. Pennell has three younger siblings: Bailey, Lucy, and Davis. Caroline was born and raised in Saddle River, New Jersey, a town located in the New Jersey-New York border and near New York City. She attended Wandell Elementary School. She graduated from Ramsey High School in 2014. She attended Tulane University in New Orleans but later took a break to focus on her music career.
So today, with a song in my heart, I choose Caroline Pennell’s cover of Coldplays "Yellow" as my, crack open that heart, let a little softness in, try to hold on to the sweetness, song for a, forgiveness is the power, love is the weapon, kindness is the key, Friday.
