“I believe musicians have a duty, a responsibility to reach out, to share your love or pain with others.” James Taylor
Last night, my friend took me to the 25th anniversary presentation of The Phantom of the Opera filmed at the Royal Albert Hall in London. I’ve been singing ever since. There’s something about music done well that stirs my deepest emotions.
Because our souls were made by an inspiring creator, we have a continuous need to express ourselves with passion. I am grateful for artists who, rather than suppress those feelings, find ways to express them through the mediums of sound, paint, charcoal, and words.
I am an adorer of these artists. I appreciate how they bear their souls, and I don’t take them for granted.
During this Christmas season, I hope we each take time to connect deeply with our creator. His creative hand print is seen in every aspect of our natural world. From the trees, the rocks, the mighty seas, and the beautiful sunset, we hear His voice crying out to us.
The opera God has written for each of us is most beautiful. May we take time to learn and to perform it with excellence.
