The Dance & The Beat of Life

The Dance & The Beat of Life

The year was 1990.  I was a young buck....just turned 14.  

Moreover, I was a confused, emotional, low self esteem freckly pimple faced kid.  #SAYTHAT10TIMES.....Go ahead, I'll wait for ya....

CONFUSED partly at the hair growin' in my armpits.

EMOTIONAL cause hormones do that to ya.

(Side Note: I have 3 daughters and a wife in her 40's now so I'm learning about it ALLLLLL over again ;)

LOW SELF ESTEEM FRECKLY PIMPLE FACED KID - well that goes without sayin, It's just plain HARD to be a KID with over active oil glands.

It was a Monday......another blue skied sunny day in Arizona.  The date, April 30th 1990, my ears glued to the radio.  Yes, back when we all listed to the RADIO.

A ballad appeared that changed my life forever.  That song in the key of Gmajor, tempo 66BPM (Beats Per Minute) and 3:41 in length was none other than THE DANCE by Garth Brooks.  Ever heard of him?  Bet you haven't heard of this guy....Tony Arata.  Tony was the writer behind one of the biggest songs in country music.

I write this message to you today because of an impactful VIDEO I saw this week that reminded me of the power of a SONG.  

It captivated me, stirred my soul, gave me those familiar "GOD BUMPS" and reminded me why, amidst my doubts, I continue to feel called to be a singer/songwriter....because music will FOREVER be the ONE VESSEL that has unhinged POWER as a UNIVERSAL LANGUAGE to SPEAK TO ALL OF HUMANITY.  Music Heals, Music saves lives, Music has value.

Before I send you to watch the video, I wanted to introduce you to a Nashville organization I had the privelidge of working with last month called "THE BEAT OF LIFE".  Their motto you ask?  MUSIC CAN SAVE A LIFE.  YES it CAN!!  I'm passionate about what FOUNDER Jeni Dominelli is doing for OUR WORLD.  Please check them out & support her mission at https://www.facebook.com/TeamTBOL/

Now...what we've all been waiting for....grab your tissues....grab your loved ones.....without further ado....I introduce Garth Brooks healing lives through music - WATCH VIDEO HERE
