God Bless the Child

Genre: Country; Lead Performer: Shania Twain

Shania Twain sheds her country-cookie image to bemoan the fate of the world’s poor children on this gospel-ish power ballad (not to be confused with the Billie Holiday standard). While her sentiments are pretty naive, her pipes sound plenty experienced. With a vocal boost from members of Take 6, Twain whispers and shouts on “God Bless the Child” with enough passion to make us temporarily forget her pinup looks.
