The one thing I love doing most is writing and singing my own songs. If I could do that and earn money without the pressures of society or a corporation limiting and commercializing my art, I would inspire, empower, and uplift people around the world. Something I learned at a very young age is that music is a universal language. Of the many ways to convey a message, music perfectly utilizes tempo and inflection to express the mood and idea behind a song even if the person listening doesn’t understand the language. A perfect example is the song Gangnam Style by Psy, although we don’t understand most of the lyrics the upbeat tempo and inflection of what he’s saying lets us know that it’s celebrative, dancing music. The fact that I happen to be American and most of the world understands my native language doesn’t hurt either. I’d like to think that if I could have the world as my audience, I would make a song that would be the anthem to a worldwide revolution.
