Can you stop the rain from falling?

 Tribute to Carl Anderson

Sometimes you are drawn to people without understanding why. That’s how I felt about Carl Anderson. I just fell in love with his music which I think I only discovered in the 90s. His song “Can you stop the rain from falling ” became the lullaby when my first daughter was born and I’ve tracked down whatever I could lay my hands on since then.

Sad thing was when I discovered why I couldn’t find anymore of his music – A friend of mine who I discovered loved Carl Anderson as much as I did – informed me that he had died of Leukemia  on the 23rd February 2004.  All these years later, I’m still mourning his passing and hope to find other fans out there who might have had the same surreal passion for his music.

In memory of this great artist who starred in “Jesus Christ Superstar” on Broadway  for close to 20 years and collaborated as lead vocalist with the famous pianist – Keiko Matsui – I have put together some of my favorite songs.  Hope you enjoy!!

  1. Hi Chevvy!
    I always thought he was so handsome 😉
    I couldn’t get the videos to play but it’s probably something on my end.
    Have a great night love!!
    I’ll try again later.

    1. Ah! I’m sorry about that – I’d love you to listen. Carl occupies the same space that Phyllis has in my heart. It’s that soul connection thing I feel for both of them – like I knew them in another life. It’s soon approaching the Witching hour so I’ll hope to check you out tomorrow. 😚
