31 Days of Giving: Day 23 – The Gift of Music

a-village-quotable music


Music can be a universal language that can bring people together. I love this time of the year specifically for the Christmas tunes. I am a fan of the classics – “Silent Night”, “White Christmas“, “O Holy Night” and who doesn’t like “All I Want for Christmas is You”. My all time favorite song is “Hallelujah” originally sung by Leonard Cohen.

To me it doesn’t matter who sings this song, when done right, it can silence a room and bring tears to your eyes.

I was blessed to be in the presence of some incredible local musicians last night who are following their dream and passion and making music their life.  I have so much respect for what they do and the gift they have.

Here is short video clip of all the musicians that played last night at A’Bravo coming together to sing “So this is Christmas”.  Just a small taste of the amazing sounds heard last night.  Thank you Sam Brooker, Jackson MankowskiBrad Bordini, Manditori and others for bringing peace and joy to our world through your gift of song.
