Danielle Brooks “Hold Me in Your Heart” – Broadway Backwards 2016


You don’t want to see me anymore. You can’t listen to me laugh out loud.
You don’t wanna see me dance. You can’t even take the chance
that it might reflect on you. You missed out on the best part of me.
The part that made me who I am today. Oh, but the best part of me is standing in
front of you and loves you anyway.
Hold me In your heart till you understand. Hold me In your heart just the way that I
am. With all your faults, I love you.
Don’t give up on me. I wont give up on you.
Well you took my hand, taught me how to be strong
That’s where I picked up when we went all wrong.
I know that I hurt you, and you hurt me too, but you mean more to me, I must mean more
to you. Hold me In your heart till you understand.
Hold me In your heart just the way that I am With all your faults I love you I need you to love me that way too.

  • Danielle, your talent, your heart, your beauty take my breath away. You are earning your place in the company of giants, a deep, humble bow, I am in awe. Please, please record a solo album one of these days, we need you in our lives. Thank you, bless you.

  • Woah Danielle! This is OUT OF THIS WORLD incredible!!!!! A FLAWLESS cover… better than the original…?!

  • Does anyone know what key this version is in?? Or perhaps even where I can find the backing track to this? I really want to sing it for an audition

  • This song is one of my favourites from kinky boots. I went to see it at the end of June and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I want to go back again mainly for this song and some others

  • I'm sorry, I love her, I've lived her for awhile and when I saw her on that silly show I nearly peed. she's so diverse. and I just. ..I'm sorry I have to.

    They call me….
    taystee cuz my pussy is delicious!
    like an apple it's nutritious
    like a Clinton is ambitious

    ok she's really singing now I'm not gonna be able to type this stupid shit and listen to her heart and soul pour out
    I'm sorry people. I just love all of her

  • OMG Danielle… I didn't know honey! I am late to this vocal party!!!!  Laaaaaaaaateeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!! What a phenom!

  • She did a fantastic job, but for me, I don't think this song is quite right for Broadway Backwards…
    I mean, the whole point of the role, song and scene is that it's a man singing it while cross-dressed as a girl. The song is actually designed for women in a sense. The idea of a man hitting the notes and pulling of the diva nature of the piece is really what makes the whole scene. I find Broadway Backwards bits work better when it's stretch for the actor to pull off a song that's not designed for their voice or gender.

  • You don't want to see me anymore.
    You can't listen to me laugh out loud.
    You don't wanna see me dance.
    You can't even take the chance
    that it might reflect on you.
    You missed out on the best part of me.
    The part that made me who I am today.
    O, but the best part of me is standing in front of you
    and loves you anyway.
    Hold me in your heart till you understand.
    Hold me in your heart just the way that I am.
    With all your faults, I love you.
    Don't give up, on me.
    I wont give up, on you.
    Well you took my hand, taught me how to be strong
    That's where I picked up when we went all wrong.
    I know that I hurt you, and you hurt me too,
    but you mean more to me, I must mean more to you.
    Hold me in your heart till you understand.
    Hold me in your heart just the way that I am
    With all your faults I love you.
    I need you to love me that way too.

  • 그대 이제 날 잊나요
내 얼굴 보기조차 싫겠죠

춤추는 내 모습도 
행복한 목소리도
더 이상 의미없어
모르죠 진짜 내 모습을
가장 거짓없고 진실한 나

하지만 이 순간 
난 네 앞에 서 있어
여전히 이대로
그대 맘 속에 새겨줘 나를
    이해해줘요 
이 모습 그대로

네 허물도 사랑해
놓지마 나를 
포기하지 마 나를
넌 지친 내 손 잡고 힘을 줬어
이겨낼거야 이 시련들도 
지독한 상처를 줘도
우린 서로가 너무도 소중한데
그대 맘 속에 새겨줘 내 이름
날 받아줘요 
이 모습 그대로
네 허물도 사랑해
그대도 그렇게 사랑해줘
