"Where Words fail, music speaks". - Entry #1
Emotions are not always easily expressed with words, but music expresses emotions! Today in Kindergarten music we spent some time working on one of our program songs, "Jesus, What a Wonderful Child". After singing and telling them the story, one kindergartener raised their hand to say that they felt the music!
Think about it, how many times do you hear a song on the radio and it makes you feel something emotionally?
For me, Elvis Presley's "If I Can Dream" is the most powerful song that I have ever heard. The blast of the brass, lyrics, and the growl of Elvis' voice on the word "strength" is something that gives me hope that dreams can come true with hard work and perseverance.
What song speaks to you emotionally?
