Music Speaks to My Heart

depositphotos_10220353-Woman-with-music-notes-vectorWhenever I have a chance, I listen to music as it empowers me.  Plain and simple: Music speaks to my heart. It also unites people.

One particular memory stands out as a highlight of my trip to Great Britain and Ireland this past summer with one of my sisters  (the same sister who introduces me to new music).  We had a special and uplifting experience one night on vacation in Killarney, Ireland.  Our tour group consisted of more than forty adults of different age groups from around the world.  This night in particular, we went to watch an outdoor concert that was happening near our hotel. The band was playing songs we all knew, so we sang out from the top of our lungs.

Despite where we had come from, every member of the tour group was connected through words.  We had this in common.

Therefore, I decided to start a list so that I can share some of these and other songs with you. Here is the list I have started so far, with the songs listed in no particular order.  Feel free to add to the list. Music can be such an inspiration to the spirit! Enjoy!

    This is a great list, thank you! I enjoy listening to music when I ride my bike. My song list is getting a bit overplayed so this will be new and uplifting for me.
