It’s the universe way of saying “you may look different but you all feel music in the same way.” The Vibe. The Rhythm. The Lyric. The Beat. You feel it through your ears, down to your heart and into your soul. Like I said…it’s magic. So, I wanted to show you, or rather, let you hear what I feel- by the way of sound. Music…
