What’s life without music? Tell me!
Music seems to get us when no one else. And who better understands its power than black women?
Being an African, I can truly attest to the fact that music is really in our bones.
The power of music began eons ago when the first foot was stomped, when the first whistle was blown, the first hands clapped together and the dancing began. Beautiful, soulful voices joined each other in unison and covered the night sky in melodious song, the angels above just had to stop and listen. As the heavenly bodies gazed down on the African man and woman, they could not help but be amazed.
Yes, what God had made was good. Very good. In fact, better than good.
It has helped me through some of the darkest moments in my life. And I’m confident you can say the same.
For us black people, music is standard. By this, I mean we sing when depressed, happy, angry or just having fun. Really, music is part of our lives, part of us and not going anywhere anytime soon.
- Music is everything.
- It is life.
- What else moves people, incites, empowers and uplifts like music?
The playlist will be updated weekly with songs in specific themes like love, redemption, and self-love.
Some of the artists will be familiar, others won’t.
Whatever the case, listen with an open mind.
Listen to the beauty, melody, harmony and words of the songs.
Each and every song on these playlists made it for a reason. So there will be NO bubblegum music unless it’s part of a theme.
Each song must do something positive for each and every one of you.
If you have any music you’d like to add to the playlists, please feel free to comment below and I’ll be more than happy to add it.
Remember: no profanity, degrading, misogynistic or anything that will tear down. Only soulful, ballads, moving and just touching songs that ill heal our broken but strong and wounded hearts.
I love you, guys.
Enjoy the musical journey with me…
