There’s no better time than right now to indulge in music
being that it is Universal music day.
It is crazy how so many artists of yesteryears continue to grow in my heart today. Talk about growing beyond yesterday. People like Miles Davis, Kashif, Sarah Vaughan, Teena Marie, Michael Jackson, Lena Horne, Selena, Paul Von Thadden, James Ajax Baynard, Bob Marley, Luther Vandross, Tupac and Prince left behind a legacy, whether they were facing a captivating audience with sweat pouring down their faces or weeping into the darkness because of the rough roads that they traveled, they left behind timeless and memorable musical moments for the entirety of the universe to love.
When I am feeling numb with stress, I listen and then feel relaxed. And when I feel
bombarded with problems, I tune in and
drown my sorrows in a deep tissue
massage of music, the sounds step in and
work their healing power.
And if ever I feel as if I am dwelling in
remorse, music acts for me as a shade
giving tree on a scorching hot day.
The unmistakable voices of Eddie Jefferson, Ray Charles, Paul Von Thadden, Ella Fitzgerald, Donna Summer, Beethoven, and Whitney Houston curtail to me. They nailed imagination to the edges of each note echoed. Their music comes to the rescue when I am in need of rebuilding bullet proof faith. I love their music and their music loves me where I am.
And so I thought it necessary to express my love for these beauties in life. I am filled with tremendous joy when I listen. For me, music is a necessity in life. And one thing I truly love is how music can touch strangers on opposite sides of the tracks. You don’t even have to speak the same language to give a song from a different walk and surrounding, a second thought.
Music will always be the life of the party in which my song and dance echoes.
You can cut yourself from slack while cutting a rug to any musical tempo.
Move with the world of music when hearing a song that from your heart won’t let go.
Happy Universal Music Day to all those
whose love for music continually grows.
