After attending Paul Brandt’s benefit concert for Slave Lake last night last night, knowing I had this assignment to do, I could not help but think about the power of music. The mix of lyrics and music has great power to change people’s hearts and minds. I think of Christmas music and how it changes moods. Religious music draws some people closer to God. Love songs bring couples closer together. I think you get the picture.
I chose to post a famous song that most would recognize as a song of significance. Although recorded many years ago it still has great power, especially to those who know the singers and the history. Text accompanied by music can deliver the most powerful of messages.
Enjoy a little music history.
