the name of the song is living it up
Finally go my life together scraped my heart up off the floor. My attitude is so much better and i hardly ever cry the way i did before. CHORUS; I've been living it up having myself a time. living it up right from the women to the wine. Living out all those fantasies I never did get to those crazy things I never tried to do. gort myself a new persona, and put a service on my phone. These days i live the way I wanna. And do I just fine as long as I'm not left a lone Chorus; every now and then I must confess i'm not quite up to all this happiness and I wonder if the place I'm at is where I do belong but don't get me wrong CHORUS. There is some scatting in the song to. Sweep do dee ba do ba deb ba do bow boba boba boba do bop bop, life ain't so good without you....Just ain't living without you.

We are one
How I know Marcus Hutson alive,becuse God give me to him in a Blood Convenat Married in the year 1986 to be his wife. So without Marcus there is no me. God don't give you someone or give you to sommeone and than one die and let the other live. That why we are one, he can not have another wife and I can not have another husband. When one go the other one go to. Why God want to let one die and let the other be along forever. So know power here on earth is going to keep Marcus and I apart. Out of time, Marcus and I will be together Soon.

Olivia- Lost And Turned Out
The Song: Olivia, Lost And Turned Out
Wow! The Whispers music had/have life messages (Empowering).
That song had a profound effect on my life as a young impressionable girl. Whenever, I was at a cross road in life, I remembered the words in the song, and used it as a pathway not to follow.
The song summed up what parents tried to say, you couldn’t missed the message, if you heard that song.
I am a Life Coach to young girls, and often times when I see that look in their eyes; Oh No, not another lecture, I give them an assignment research the song Olivia by the whispers and bring back to me your interruption of the song.
Still savings lives-POWERFUL!
