ABOUT THE SONG

  • MC: The song “Anytime You Need A Friend” definitely has a gospel influence. I love the vocal arrangements in gospel music, it’s like, one of my favorite things, and I love background vocals, so it was a really fun song to do in the studio. Actually, It sounds like a huge choir singing on it, on the record, but it’s mostly these three girls that have been working with me: the Price sisters, two of them, and another girl, Melonie Daniels. It was a great experience to work with them and to do these gospel arrangements. because they’re really from the church and they’re really really authentic, so it’s definitely one of my favorite songs on the album. - 1994 Music Box Album Promo Video
