Song of the Week - Skyscraper/Demi Lovato

There are so many teen singers right now and kids starring in shows on The Disney Channel and Teen Nick, that’s it’s next to impossible to keep track of them all. Now that my kids are older they do not watch these shows so it’s even harder to know who half of these fresh-faced teens are. Demi Lovato we all know though because she famously stepped away from the teen bubble and sought treatment from bulimia and other speculated issues. Apparently, her rock bottom doesn’t even come close to what we’re use to seeing these days in Hollywood. Now she’s back with a song that’s growing on me a little more every time I hear it. I think it’s because she now has what these other teenyboppers lack, wisdom and personal pain to draw on. You can hear it in her voice. You go Demi!

I can't say that I really love the song but I saw on TV the other day and at least there is real emotion to it. It's not just an auto tuned pop princess song.

I agree Karen. I haven't purchased this song from iTunes, but I don't turn the radio when it comes on.

The song has a certain power, but doesn't quite grab me.

Speaking of teen singers with something to say, Fiona Apple's debut album from 90s was amazing, and love new single by Amanda Mair "House"
