Those who know me well, know that there are four things that motivate me. They are news reporting, patriotism, my family, and music.

It's the latter that is the topic of this post.

Music has been a part of my life since I can remember. I had musical parents and all through my school and college years I invested my time and energy in music study and performance.

Through those years I was able to personally discover all of the riches that music can provide, not the least of which is a rich cultural understanding and appreciation, because music is truly a universal language that transcends most conflict and difficulty.

Even in my adult life I have championed music education by starting the non-profit The Gifts of Music, and I always turn to music as my stress relief and source of fun and relaxation.

So, you can imagine my delight when my Aunt recently sent me this link, that frankly, started out like a bad joke, but it ended in my amazement and I was not alone. I giggled, laughed, and had goose bumps all over!

Bravo!

This is amazing....enjoy!
