Review: Suzy Bogguss, “In Heaven”

Her voice is still as pure and clear as a mountain stream, and she instinctively knows the great truth about singing that too many women these days never learned: it’s not about power, it’s about sincerity.

As Bogguss asks her deceased husband for his blessing on the new love she has found, all of the shades of emotion are there in her multi-layered performance: fear, apprehension, guilt, joy, sorrow.    You can feel the conflict inside of her character as she sings every line.

It’s a beautiful song sung beautifully.  What more can we ask for?

Grade: A

Listen: In Heaven


  1. It’s good to have new material available from Ms Bogguss. While she was never a superstar, she is up there with Patty Lovelace and Trisha Yearwood as the best female singers of her generation, and a better pure singer than any of the new wave of female artists.

    “It’s a beautiful song sung beautifully. What more can we ask for?”

    We can ask for more

  2. Ahh it’s so nice to hear Susy’s voice again. I have always loved her music and it was quite a shock when Capitol dropped her way back when, then she seemed to dissappear. I know it probably won’t happen but I Hope she gets back on the radio with this song.

  3. oh my god heard this song in ny had to call my sister in florida this song was meant for her she lost her husband of 26 yrs and now moving forward in her life she needed to hear this song Suzy sings her world

  4. In Heaven is just the song I needed to move on after after the death of my husband two years ago. It touch my heart so much, since I have now found someone else to spend the rest of my life with.
