Music–It’ll Make You Feel Good! by Beth Panageotou of Bonbon Break
“Music is the great uniter. An incredible force. Something that people who differ on everything and anything else can have in common.” ― Sarah Dessen, Just Listen
Music. It represents every part of speech, every emotion, every occasion.
Music moves us, calms us, empowers us, unites us.
Music exposes us to different cultures, personalities and genres.
Music invigorates the body, mind and soul.
