You're Gonna Love Me.

Emily Bennett Beck - Best of Everything (2006)

Jennifer Hudson - And I'm Telling You I'm Not Going (sendspace mp3): Jennifer violently pounds the flaccid head of this bleeding-heart-ballad on the rigid floor of the stage, stopping just short of vomiting tears of her own desperation into the pumice of its withered carcass. The debilitating emotion isn't even self-realized until 1:40, when an authentic breakdown erupts from the predictably rolled cymbal crescendo, snare clicks, and lowering drum bridge of the cheap house band. As the long-distance vocal rounds the 3:00 minute mark, it cracks from powerful to memorable. Like any true passion, unwaivering strength surfaces from the depth of vulnerability at the exact minute of necessity. And instead of fading away with exhaustion or on a victorious high note, Jennifer won't let go of the chorus and continues to scream with desperately clinging and ultimately futile repetition.
