I don't know about you, but since I was a child music has always been a big part of my life. My mother wrote in my baby book when I was about four, that I could hear a song once and know all the words. Still true today( however don't ask me where I put my glasses!) I was the teenager locked in her room signing in front of the mirror at the top of her lungs to Pat Benatar. Complete with the airbrush microphone! And to this day, I am still the woman singing in the store when a good song comes on.
While I create, I listen to music all day. From country, to oldies, to rock to pop. I love it all. But the main reason I love music is for the meaning in a song. Music has gotten me through many heartbreak. It has been there to help me celebrate the good times. And been there to comfort me through the tears of the bad. I think we all have had that moment when we hear a song and feel like it was written just for us at the moment. Music inspires me.
One day the song, Sing, by Karen Carpenter came on. She is one of my favorite artists of all time and her music healed and uplifted me during some very dark times. As, like Karen, I suffered for over 20 years with anorexia and bulimia. The hook from the I have heard and sang that song a million times. But this time when I heard that it hit me, I don't think you should just sing “A” song, I think you should sing “YOUR” song! Just sing the above and replace the “A” with “Your”. If you are going to sing, I think you need to let the world know “YOUR” song! Because if you don't sing “Your” song, who will?
