NEWPORT FOLK: Michael Kiwanuka

“I’m Getting Ready”

Heading into the Newport Folk Festival as a staff member, I have zero expectations of what I will get to see. Working the fest is a whole different experience (that I love) and I consider any music I get to sit and watch an amazing bonus.

That being said, if the stars align and I get to see and hear Michael Kiwanuka perform THIS song live, I think I’ll be able to die happy.

LYRICS: Michael Kiwanuka

“I’m Getting Ready”

This song has always given me goosebumps – nearly moved me to tears – no matter how many times I listen. And the more I hear each word, the clearer I see why it moves me the way it does.

“Oh my…I didn’t know what it means to believe
Oh my…I didn’t know what it means to believe
But if I hold on tight is it true?
Would you take care of all that I do?
Oh Lord,
Imma gettin’ ready
To Believe

Oh my…I didn’t know how hard it would be
Oh my…I didn’t know how hard it would be
But if I hold on tight is it true?
Would you take care of all that I do?
Oh Lord,
Imma gettin’ ready
To Believe.
