NEW STACIE ORRICO!

Yep, you read correctly! It may be a feature effort, but we have a hot little track by the name of 'Act Like You Know' featuring Stacie's powerhouse vocals.  The song is by an independent Christian reggaeton artist by the name of Flow Celestial, but the majority of the song is Stacie's.  I'm keen to hear your thoughts!  I think the reggaeton sound is the perfect road to go down following the beautiful R&B nature of 'Beautiful Awakening'.  Hopefully we'll hear more music news soon!  But in the meantime, enjoy the track!




UPDATE: It appears that 'Act Like You Know' may in fact be Stacie's song after all.  Songwriter Damon Sharpe has listed a writing credit with Stacie Orrico for 'Act Like You Know', as well as three other songs titled 'Gifted', 'Let It Go' & 'Jump The Gun', which look like they were all written during the 'Beautiful Awakening' era (see comments thread).  But, the fact that 'Act Like You Know' has only just been released might mean Stacie has kept this and maybe a few others of the 50+ tracks recorded for Beautiful Awakening for a new record - fingers crossed!

Hey Curdey. Damon Sharpe actually worked with Stacie on the Hurricane Katrina Tribute song, so those songs might have been during her recording process for "Beautiful Awakening". I know they meet each other working on music, and that's how he put her on the Tribute song in 2005.

Dallas said...

Also, the song is reggaeton. It's popular amongst latin countries. It's a mix or reggae and spanish elements.

Curdey said...

Thanks Dallas :-) I'll update my post.

Curdey said...

I thought about that too Dallas, but it just seems weird that we'd only just be getting 'Act Like You Know' now, if it was written circa Hurricane Katrina tribute song time.. I've got my fingers crossed for it being new material (I know, that's dangerous lol!), but we'll see...all of these songs are listed on ascap.com as well under Damon Sharpe too :-)

Dallas said...

Ok so I looked up the songs on google, and they were done in 2006 so it was for Beautiful Awakening. lol I think since Stacie left Virgin she got all the rights to the 50+ songs she wrote and recorded, and she's no longer keeping them to herselves. lol girl needs a check.

But here are 2 links...

"Jump The Gun" (it's listed somewhere in the middle)

"Let It Go" (it's toward the bottom of the page...the 6th to the last one)

I did some research last night and on Flow's myspace page it said that he did a concert with Jaci Valazquez, Stacie, and a few other people in the Dominican Republic. I wasn't sure if it was true cause we got no news or video footage of it until I saw these pics on his FB page. They were taken at the concert event by Mike Silva (evangelist), and it was in the Dominican Republic. haha It's just weird that we never got anything from it.

Dallas said...

I just found that the event had happened in 2008, but she didn't perform. I wonder if she was there to help?

Hi!! Can you get the lyrics???

Just found this page about "Light Years" from an interview with Kristine Elezaj http://www.artistdirect.com/entertainment-news/article/kristine-elezaj-is-bringing-back-good-pop/7709109

What's up with "Light Years?"

Stacie Orrico wrote it with Brandon Beal. I did a little writing on it, but I connected with it the most because at the time I heard it I was going through a little something with a boy [Laughs]. That song just fit the situation that was happening in my life to a "T" perfectly. It's one of my favorite songs on the album. It's just raw, and you hear more emotion in it than anything.

Dallas said...

That's awesome! Im glad someone is using "Light Years". Sad I won't get to hear Stacie's version, but I would love to hear this chick sing it.

Dallas said...

Found the full song! She's def. not as strong vocally as she is compared to stacie.

musicaljenius09 said...

OMG I am so pissed about Light Years...Stacie is the one that should be singing that song UGH! I can totally hear her singing this, *sigh* I stil love Stacie though, she'll always be my girl!

Dallas said...

I knew she was keeping this song. I don't think she's even working on an album, probably just demo songs. And she's shopping songs for other artists for money. lol So it's safe to say that we'll most def. won't be getting anything from her anytime soon.

musicaljenius09 said...

Yeah I figured that, UGH! I'm so pissed about that but hey, I fully support watever she wants to do b/c we've never been in her place and had to live the hectic life she's had to so I can completely understand her frustration with the music business. Depressing, but watever makes her happy! (that was really hard for me to say lol)

Curdey said...

^I expected as much, unfortunately. What ultimately disappoints me is that Stacie has not said either way to her fans what she has decided to do - I personally think it's a bit unfair for the fans to be left hanging like this for so long..
Oh well, we'll see - I guess we never know what's around the corner, we may just get a surprise when we least expect it :-)

musicaljenius09 said...

EXACTLY! UGH, I think thats really unfair too. I mean she doesn't owe us anything b/c I mean its her life but still, come on! give us SOME kind of warning or notice about your life or whats going on. and THEN she gave Light Years to another artist which made me even more enraged b/c that girl thats singing didn't do that song justice UGH UGH UGH! But you're right, NEVER GIVE UP HOPE! She might just do that and surprise us. FINGERS CROSSED!

We can all understand her privacy, but her life involves the lives of her fans who are waiting for her. And she should know how frustrating it is; It is kind of ironic that in her song "Light Years" she is singing about waiting for a response from someone and being left stranded. That is exactly what she is doing herself- and many are floating apart from her. - her fans sit on the edge of their seat waiting for something to happen.

musicaljenius09 said...

Exactly, i respect her privacy but i mean, she knew that she was going to be faced with this kind of life wen she started in this business and she should respect her fans and let us know SOMETHIGN JEEEZZ! hahaha but hey, who knows, we're just oging to have to wait and anticipate her return...if she ever does.

HIRAM said...

that´s what I´ve been saying for years now... I mean she has a website, a mypace, ANYTHING that she could say hey you know what, I´m not doing music anymore... I believe every year from now snce BA we thik she is releasing something, but then it just fades away and we are left like we´ve been ever since. I LOVE Staie and I always will but I just gave up on her. I dont think we are getting any news from her. Remember this guy who didnt want to pill the beans and he wanted tac to let us know what was up to, and never happened. I´m just tired of being waiting her for years, and all we get are demos that are no more than that. Lght Years Apart ws a BEAUTIFUL song, if she didnt use it, I doubt she will ever use any other song. It looks like she decided to go from singer to song writer and thats it. Without even saying goodbye, I just think it is not fair at all to be waitig for any kind of upate that I´m sure wont take more than 10 mins for her to write. I may check next year and see if something goes up. God bless you all, greeting from Mexico City

musicaljenius09 said...

I completely agree, I hate to say it but I kinda gave up on her too. If she hasn't said anything now, she won't say anything anytime soon. She hasn't released anything of her own since 2007 and its about to be 5 years since beautiful awakening was released. Its just insanity that she let such a great voice like hers go to waste and not continue to make music. but hey, let her do what she wants, i just hope someday she knows that her fans really, truly loved her and care about her and still do. but i give up lol.
