Demi Lovato: Tiny Desk (Home) Concert

Demi Lovato: Tiny Desk (Home) Concert

What is it?

Here is the description for this video:

The Tiny Desk is working from home for the foreseeable future. Introducing NPR Music’s Tiny Desk (home) concerts, bringing you performances from across the country and the world. It’s the same spirit — stripped-down sets, an intimate setting — just a different space.

Lyndsey McKenna | April 14, 2021
A few years ago, some of us on the NPR Music team stumbled upon a copy of Demi Lovato’s 2013 book, Staying Strong: 365 Days A Year. Reading Lovato’s heartfelt daily reflections became a workday habit; her transparency and vulnerability made us ardent admirers who wanted nothing but the very best for Demi.

We made it our mission to get Demi to the Tiny Desk, and though the pandemic had other plans, Lovato’s Tiny Desk (home) concert was worth the wait. Recorded on a sunny spring day in her Los Angeles backyard, Lovato begins with a moving rendition of “Tell Me You Love Me” from her 2017 record of the same name, accompanied by subtle, sparse keys. She continues her set with the title tracks from her recently-released studio album, Dancing With The Devil…The Art Of Starting Over. On both tracks, Lovato’s voice feels stabilizing and grounding; there’s a sense of clarity and purpose in its power.

When interviewed by NPR’s Ailsa Chang back in 2017, Demi Lovato said, “I think I’ve lived a lot of life.” Through both her struggles and successes, Lovato’s shown all sides of herself – the confident and unapologetic star, but also the complexities of recovery – inviting us on her journey in a deeply personal way. Her intimate (home) concert feels like a natural extension of that sincerity.

TR & Tom Cruise & Milla Jovovich? | TR | World War II Time Lapse Interviews & Videos

Dream 1

I am not sure if this was from a previous dream or a forgotten part of this dream, I just remember that my female coworker TR was there, the next thing that I remember is being at a slightly fictional version of my parents house which had an attic that you could walk in unlike our attic in real life, and we had two separate visitors arrive with Tom Cruise being one visitor & a Milla Jovovich-like woman with curly blonde hair or it was Milla Jovovich who was the second visitor.

Most of my family & I were there & these two separate visitors were a surprise to us, it did not seem that we knew them as friends or anything like that, so I am not sure why they were visiting us, they did not arrive together or seem to know each other & I do not remember them even getting to see each other during the dream, they both were in different parts of the house, and I was with the Milla Jovovich-like woman or Ms. Jovovich if that was her most of the time.

A Dog Ransom?

I am not sure if part of this dream was video game-like or not, my memory of it is unclear, I just remember that at the end of the dream all of my brothers (even CC) who were kids again & I went to a fictional nearby wilderness / park-like area.

We possibly considered camping out there, I can not remember the details of what happened other than us walking around et cetera enjoying nature & seeing various animals, and there was some history & familiarity about this area so I probably had false memories of it.
