The Power of Music

"Music has the power to transcend one's soul to a wonderfully happy place." ~Mama Hen
What do Frank Sinatra, Mozart, Neil Diamond, Fred Astaire, Kenny Rogers, Elvis Presley, Maroon 5, Adele, Bing Crosby, Antonio Vivaldi, Andre Rieu, Beethoven, Alicia Keys, Beatles, Dorris Day, Dean Martin, David Grey, Kathleen Battle, Mariachi, Bachata, Salsa, Luis Juan Guerra, Juanes, The Secret Garden, The King and I, My Fair Lady, Lady and the Tramp, Luciano Pavarotti, Bob Marley, Four Tops, REM, Bob Dylan, David Bowie, Beyonce, the Bee Gees, Charlie Daniels Band, Bruce Springsteen, Clint Black, Billy Ray Cyrus, Disco, Latin Rock, Instrumental Movie Soundtracks, and Music Together and Kindermusik (and of course so much more) have in common? Little Chick! My daughter loves music! All kinds of music. I have always been drawn to a variety of music genres and I have been playing a myriad of songs for Little Chick since the beginning. She has become such an avid listener to this variety I have exposed her to and she has also come to learn all the artists names and will request various genres when she is in the mood for something. I gave her an IPOD Shuffle for her birthday and she can't get enough of it. I think one of the greatest gifts is music. It can transcend us to a happier peaceful place within seconds of listening. This love of music has fueled her desire to learn the piano. She wants to learn the violin so she can "be just like Andre Rieu". I think that is a great goal and I love filling Little Chick with the knowledge of music!
Thanksgiving Thursday: 1.) Little Chick and my family 2.) Music and the beautiful way it can lift us up. 3.) Summer fun! 4.) Wishing upon the stars at night. 5.) Little Chick's giggle.
