- Jimi Hendrix
I try to avoid hyperbole, but I truly believe music is one of the most powerful forces on the planet. It touches people on a deep, emotional level transcending differences in language, culture, political views and socio-economic status.
Even with his scientifically-focused mind, Albert Einstein understood and appreciated the value music brings to our lives when he observed, “If I were not a physicist, I would probably be a musician. I often think in music. I live my daydreams in music. I see my life in terms of music. … I get most joy in life out of music.”
Throughout the ages, music has helped humankind express our passions, hopes and dreams. On occasion, music has even caused us to act on a particular issue, with those in the industry often leading the charge. Remember 1985’s “We Are the World?”
