… A song that makes you cry, & why?

Music has a power unequaled. It can make us laugh, dance, run, and feel alive. However, it can also bring memories back, and make us sad. Still, the ones I have interviewed, even though they talked to me about songs that affected them, and why, always did so with a smile on their face. I am telling you, the power of music is like no other power; it can bring tears to your eyes and make you crack a smile at the same beat.

“The lyrics are so powerful, about something so magnificent…that I can’t help but cry.                                                        I mean, look at this beauty!”
