Anyone who has spent much time on this blog knows that music of all sorts is vital to my everyday existence, and that live concerts with all of their energy, talent, electricity and excitement, are what gives my life that jolt we all need. So when the following video by Sarah Connor and Naturally 7 (extremely talented performers I’m afraid I had never heard of before) was sent to me today it was almost as if they had tapped into my brain and put into words and music a huge portion of what music means to me and how it affects my life.
The timing of being introduced to these performers, this beautiful song, and the great images in the video, is also a bit of kismet since the past few days have been an emotional roller coaster due to one of my best friends suddenly losing his best friend. It goes without saying that putting any energy into writing a blog has been the furthest thing from my mind, but this video just touched something in me and made me want to share it with everyone. While nothing short of love, support, and time, can even begin to chip away at the incredible pain and emptiness from such a tragic and heartbreaking loss, I really do feel that music can play an important role in the healing process, and this video seems to speak directly to that notion. And to my dear friend Jackson, if you happen to read this, babe, let me say again that I am ALWAYS here for you and that I love you. (((J)))
