Since the beginning of time, people have used music to celebrate, to empower, to divide, to unite, to uplift, to encourage, to protest, to rebel, and more.
Music is a mood. It is therapeutic. It is a variety of feelings and emotions. Not a day goes by that I don’t listen to music. I love to dance and I love to sing, so that has something to do with it. But, I also like the way I feel when I play certain songs. You know what I’m talking about. 😉That song that brings back a sweet or fun memory and brings a smile to your face. Your favorite producer from your favorite musical era that knows exactly when to drop the beat and make your body move. That song you danced to with your first love, or at your wedding reception, or on your best birthday. Music is a mood! I am a fan of music from the 1990s and early 2000s. I’m a romantic and I love love ❤and I feel like the music from that era was all about love; the love of hip hop, the love of being black, the love of being a woman, or man, the love of family, romance, and all the good feels.
Have you ever put on some music, turned it way up, and just let the music move you? A lot of people are afraid to dance, even by themselves, because they believe they have no rhythm, they do not know any particular popular dance moves, or they simply feel awkward doing it. Well, let me be the first to tell you that you are missing out on one of the most amazing and freeing feelings ever! I encourage you to put on your favorite song, turn it up, close your eyes, do not worry about what you think you feel like, and let the music move you. Allow the melody to move your body, let the music tell your arms what to do. Let the bass move your feet, the strings move your arms, and the horn move your head. Let the music move you, baby!
