Yvette Norwood-Tiger composed some new music. Strong (Joshua 1:9) came to me in a dream, while I recovered from surgery and radiation treatment for a brain tumor in 2012. It was a message from God of encouragement because I did not feel strong. I wanted to share this message with those who need encouragement. After my recovery, my husband, Stephen, and I went to listen to jazz because I missed live music. I met Elijah Gee at All That Jazz Restaurant in Sunrise, FL. Elijah helped me compose Strong by arranging and producing the song. It was my first original composition. Elijah’s friend, rapper Alexander Starr writes and performs positive rap music and his prowess was an excellent addition to Strong, recorded and released as a single in 2016. In 2014, I returned to performing with Eric & the Jazzers. One night at the Kreepy Tiki in Fort Lauderdale, keyboardist Ken Burkhart played his original song “Long Lost Friends”. I was enthralled by the melody and Latin beat. I asked him if I could add my lyrics to it and he agreed. The words came to me based off the title. We all experience saying goodbye to a loved one and hoping we can be together, again. My favorite verse is “When one I’ve lost has returned, for the yesterdays I yearn. I travel through my heart and pray we never part, again.” Long Lost Friends was recorded and released in 2019 on LOVE IS.
