I always liked Mariah Carey I think she is one of a kind.I could put this song on repeat and never get triered of it.This song is so special it should go on her greatest hits.
This song confirms the meaning of saving the best for last. Its the best song on the album which communicates the true meaning of "emancipation" which the album is trying to define.
If producers are smart they would allow word music or some others to make an accompaniment track and get it exposed more in Christian Circles.
I only learned about this song this year!
A brillaint strategic finish to the album , similar to what Brian Mcknight did with "when the chariot comes" on the Anytime Album. I have not found a track for that song to date. It would be great if they made track availiable for this song. More royalties to Mariah. Dynamically sung with Class. Superb song.

This song is absolutely awesome. Mariah is unbeatable in her vocals on this song. The message is uplifting and so very much needed. The entire CD is wonderful, however, this song is stellar. Welcome back Mariah!
Fly Like a Bird | Reviewer: Brett
This is classic Mariah Carey, a real song. "Fly Like a Bird" is the strongest 'song' on the album. Everything about it says 'classic'. I can imagine a few gospel artist covering this song soon.
Mariah has that Denise Williams 'Free' kinda vibe at the beginning, it's a light voice with a vibrato. I have to find out who the band is for this tune, as they play the heck out of an arrangement desgined to have you tapping your feet, feeliing your heart beat, checking the hairs on the back of your neck, all while reaching for your hanky to dry those tears of joy.
I LOVE this song! IF, Mariah's record label people are really smart, < L.A. Reid has an MBA from Harvard(ya shoulda gone to Fuqua!... anyway),> they will get this song on those 'Light" gospel formats ASAP, and cross it over to AHC, smooth Jazz, and R&B. Then push for it for 'Song of the Year'.
All of you wanna be's out there should try and sing 'Fly Like a Bird', it has some interesting challenges. I can't wait to hear a really good Gospel Choir try this one in church.
