A “musician”, we call this artist one who connects with great energy, whose art is heard in the soul. A musicians creative juices flow like magic through the air. The sound waves they create can move us so deeply that we laugh out loud, cry out loud and sing along with passion in our hearts. They are poets and dreamers whose musical talents bring harmony to our world.
We need these great musical artists to help this world be moved into a better place by creating an outlet for us all to sing along through the journey of our lives. Imagine for a moment a world without music. Would we be able to express our emotions the same? Music helps to provide us thoughts and feelings in order to help us deal with certain life experiences we all go through.
We have met a composer of musical value, whose beautiful music and lyrics bring us to a happy place today. The moral approach to life is love and we believe musical artist Willard Overstreet brings this to life with his music.
