“To every man, woman & child:
We want an end to the glamorization of negativity in the media. We want an end to status symbouls dictating our worth as individuals. We want a meaningful and universal education system. We want subtance in the place of popularity. We will not compromise who we are to be accepted by the crowd. We want the invisible walls that separate by wealth, race & class to be torn down. We want to think our own thoughts. we will be responsible for our environment. We want clarity & truth rom our elected officials or they should move aside. we want love not lies. We want an end to all wars foreign & domestic violence. we want an end to the processed culture of exploitation, over-consumption & waste. We want knowledge, understanding & peace.
We will not lpse because we are not losers, we are lasers!”
Lupe Fiasco is a lyrical genius. I love his music, inside and out, but this song stuck out to me from the rest. Then when the video came out early this week I have done nothing but watch it on repeat. I am so glad he did a video with this song. I just figured I would share this video with you, so what do you guys think? If you ask me, it has the potential to strike up some controversy.

Doesn’t this video make you smile? It just brightens my day, it is too cute. This song is called Valentine by Kina Grannis. I just love her voice, it’s refreshing to listen to. She just came out with a new album, Stairwells, on April 5. You can preview the entire CD on her Website. She has five new songs and covers. If you end up falling in love with her music, then you can also purchase her CD on the Website. She is a great artist, so check her out.
I hope you have a great day, a day that is filled with love.

For those of you who don’t know him, his name is Tyler Ward. He has done a ton of covers, which I fall in love with every time. He has such a great talent vocally and instrumentally. I just love his voice, don’t you? He also records newer upcoming artist to the YouTube world. Check out more of his videos, they are absolutely great. Also, if you have an account through YouTube be sure you subscribe to his channel. I promise you won’t be disappointed. I also promise this will not be the last time you see him on my blog.

I am loving everything about this song, and my play count is quickly rising. It is becoming almost an obsession listening to it. This song perfectly expresses the part in my life which I am having to face, moving on. Not just moving on to the next part of life, but moving on without a person that was so familiar once, moving on without the one you love(d). It never is easy; no one ever said it would be. But, what I am beginning to figure out is that you can, in fact, move on without them. You begin with the baby steps, and slowly, but surely, I can feel myself getting stronger without them. This song is exactly what I needed right now in life, and every word is helping me through my healing processes. So, thank you Sara Evan’s for coming out with this song. My favorite part:
Getting along without you, baby
I’m better off without you, baby
How does it feel without me, baby?
I’m getting stronger without you, baby
And I’m done hoping we could work it out
I’m done with how it feels, spinning my wheels
Letting you drag my heart around
And, oh, I’m done thinking that you could ever change
I know my heart will never be the same
But I’m telling myself I’ll be okay
Even on my weakest days
I get a little bit stronger
Remember: I love songs that have to do with what I am going through in my life.

I just became extremely respectful of the show Glee. The cast on the show has so much pure, raw, talent. I love to listen to them sing just about anything. They have such a melody, and can carry with one another. The best part, its real, all of their voices. They can sing, unlike most shows. What amazes me is this:
American Idol has produced season after season. Every year us, as America, always wonder how on earth that one (or more) performer(s) made it so far in the competition. We all think to ourselves “Really? They are awful. Vote them off now.” American Idol can not even produce a successful top 12, maybe even top 8. There is always someone that should never of made it to that point.
On the other hand, Glee. They were able to cast almost entirely a show of musically talented people. Almost every single cast member has such an amazing talent that they make some of the American Idol winners look bad. So my full respect goes to Glee. They are able to produce show after show successfully, wish beautiful sounding song covers. The producer of the show, my regards go to you. Glee, I will give you serious props, thank you for presenting true talent.
This all makes me seem like an American Idol hater, which I am not, I love the show. This is just something I realized. The person who casted glee did an amazing job. They should become a judge on American Idol and show them how it’s done.
