Truly one of the most gorgeous things I’ve ever experienced is Björk singing anything. However, in the intimacy and acoustic grandeur of Brooklyn’s Riverside Church, I was propelled even deeper into the wonder that is this woman’s voice.
The purity and unerring grace of her performance is what made me eternally a worshiper of her music. Her use of the space is astonishing. She takes every inch of it into her being and produces a sound as grand as the church itself.
There are really now words to express the potency of her vocal reach, the deftness of her artistry. With this small-ish concert, Björk was able to embody everything beautiful, simple, and powerful about her that we’ve come to love and respect.
