It’s been just over two years since the world lost Carrie Fisher. In many way’s it was a huge loss for the world, she was quite the inspiration and not only that she was a fantastic entertainer. But none of that could pale in comparison to how a family member could feel and that is why it is just beautiful to see this lovely tribute from her own daughter. Lourd took to the piano with a rendition of the Jackson Browne-penned ballad “These Days,” and recorded a video for fans to enjoy and to allow themselves to be moved by. (I warn you this one made even me a little emotional)
Lourd wrote: it has been two years since my Momby’s death and I still don’t know what the “right” thing to do on a death anniversary is (I’m sure a lot of you feel the same way about your loved ones). So I decided to do something a little vulnerable for me, but something we both loved to do together – sing. This is the piano her father gave her and this was one of her favorite songs. And as the song says, we must “keep on moving”. I’ve found that what keeps me moving is doing things that make me happy, working hard on the things that I’m passionate about and surrounding myself with people I love and making them smile. I hope this encourages anyone feeling a little low or lost to “keep on moving”. As my Momby once said, “take your broken heart and turn it into art” – whatever that art may be for you. ❤️
Billie Lourd truly is a great talent in her own right and I think we can expect big things from her.
