"Play music, sing music, feel the release and find some comfort that your soul needs."
I have loved music from my earliest memory...
I suppose I was just three or four years old when my beloved Grandad would record me singing onto a cassette tape.
Sadly, my dear Grandparents lived a whopping four hours away so I suppose (sentimental as Grandad was ) that he found the 'Goodbyes' with the family somewhat easier with a cassette tape memory of his grandkids tucked into his deep coat pocket for safe keeping.
(Plus a humbug or wrapped jelly sweet, naturally. -He rocked!)
Once Grandad was home and somewhat alone (bar Nanny and the cat!) at any time, he could play that recording ...and I guess it did his soul good. ❤️
Allowing him to 'revisit' our visit, our songs-at any time.
The power of recorded sound!
Even listening back to those recordings now, I can hear his strong, calm voice encouraging me.
Then my little, squeaky, innocent, 'fragile-sounding' voice heartily singing out my favourite songs from Sunday School.
Even now, thirty years later, it transports me instantly back to that care-free time of being a child...enjoying every moment with my Grandad.
And for those moments that I am listening ...I could be there with him.
I suppose that's the power of music, isn't it?
In a moment it can seriously transport us to a time, a place, an emotion?
I encourage you to listen to something that will uplift your souls today....
Choose the right music to feed a part of you that feels empty, lonely, anxious or lost...
Be it classical, rock, country, worship ... you know what floats your boat!
(In fact talking of boats-wave music is incredibly calming. 😉)
As a Christian, I believe music is a gift from God to both give and release emotions.
I'm convinced that Heaven is FULL of music in the most glorious and breathtakingly way possible ...with sights and sounds we simply couldn't describe down here.
As a Singer and a Song-Writer I find music to be 'A Tranquil Space', a space where I can REALLY express and discover and release my inner emotions and somehow, in some way...it meets a deep, supernatural need that otherwise I could be unaware of.
I have also seen the incredible impact music can have on both large audiences and individuals. It's quite amazing and I love to be a part of that.-Helping people to really connect and feel an emotion that they had lost or forgotten... or never before discovered.
Well, sadly, my Grandad didn't know I grew up to be such a music lover and work as a professional Singer...but I'm sure thankful to him for encouraging my journey towards where I am today, to value music, to cherish and hold dear precious moments and to capture what you can as those dear memories live on when we do not.
So here 'I' am encouraging YOU to play music, sing music, record music if you're so equipped!
Feel a release and find some comfort that your soul needs in music.
I believe it is something we really need- At times where our mind is chaotic/our emotions are low ....in a moment, music can touch something deep within us that words alone cannot.
Find your Soul Music ...
