A singer and a song

I came across a video combining two of my favourites - the song "Holding Back the Years" and the singer Randy Crawford. "Holding Back" was originally done by Simply Red, of course, on their first album, and was a worldwide hit. I suppose Randy Crawford is now a little past her prime, but in the early 80s her interpretations of classics like "Rainy Night in Georgia" and "Some Day I'll Fly Away" were the soundtrack to a lot of my life at that time.
In this video these two come together in a concert recorded in 1995 for German TV.
