As February begins, our thoughts inevitably turn to love in all of its distinct incarnations. And considering the never-ending variations of this perennial theme, we thought the best way to begin was a love song about…love! Branice McKenzie sings about the universal power of love in its purest form in I Will Follow Love, a gorgeous ballad whose sparse piano accompaniment gives Branice’s heartfelt delivery room to breathe. This song is from the WFM Collection’s compilation album Songs of Love, which spans all the facets of love: physical love, spiritual love, Valentine love, and familial love, to name a few. This song is also found on Branice’s album Music Is, a set of fresh and uplifting inspirational songs from this eloquent and sensitive communicator.
