MUSIC THAT WILL MOVE YOU

MUSIC THAT WILL MOVE YOU2If you’ve ever had a sudden rush of joy from hearing the first notes of your favorite song on the radio you know your next action was to crank up the volume.

“Music is the language of the soul.” Where words fail, music fills.

Brain scans show that when people listen to music, virtually every area of their brain becomes more active.

Musicians like the Kimo family bring a contagious joy to all they sing – Beatles, folk, country or gospel.  Hear them here (HOLLE).2015-08-01 21.39.19Music finds its primary purpose as a spiritual expression.

One of the longest books in the Bible is “Psalms.” Its the Hebrew songbook. The prose is lyrical and penned to be sung.

All music is a gift from God. Martin Luther got it right when he said, “Music is a grace of God, not an invention of men. Music is God’s greatest treasure in the world.”

Worship through music is soul refreshing – “…be filled with the Spirit, speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your hearts to the Lord.” (Ephesians 5:18-19)

6 Singers; 3 Songs

1. SOLOMIA LOUKIANETZ

Over 4,000,000 people have viewed this audition by 13 year-old, Solomia Loukianetz. She amazed everyone on “The Voice Kids Germany” when she sang Andrea Bocelli and Sarah Brightman’s “Time To Say Goodbye.”

Lena Meyer, one of the judges, couldn’t keep herself from crying. Watch and see if you have better success.

2. AKNU

Three brothers – Marquis, Rayne, and Mark Scott – were born in Boston and raised in the South-Central area of Los Angeles. They formed a trio named – AKNU . Despite a turbulent upbringing that included stints where the family lived in shelters, and the challenges of growing up in a neighborhood where extra-curricular learning opportunities were seldom available, the brothers found an escape in their love of music and dance.

Their passion for creating and performing music has honed their incredible natural talent and turned them into dynamic and inspiring performers.

AKNU has been featured on MTV and in Vogue Italia, Ebony, and Vanity Fair. A recent performance on “The X Factor” earned accolades from all three judges, including the notoriously critical Simon Cowell.

3. TWIN HARMONY

The Royce Twins tragically lost both of their parents when they were very young. They were blessed by an amazing foster dad, but it’s music that really helped them get through.

Hearing them sing, “I Won’t Give Up” will give you chills.
