I know I haven’t posted any YouTube related content in a while, but here is one.
From the vocal styling of the latest Voice winner, comes this emotionally moving songs that speaks to transparency and honesty and being who you are.
“because the greatest risk we’ll ever take is by far to stand in the light and be seen as we are”

I wrote this down a while and I found it again, so I decided to post it with some adjustments.
If you love singing as much as I do, you most likely have already joined a choir or music group or something.
Now if you aren’t in any of the groups mentioned above you need to join one, even if it’s only for fun.
In every school I’ve been in since Year 8 (JSS 2) I have been in the choir. And I have to tell you, if your choir is filled with amazing talent, the feeling of being in the midst is profound.
I, once in a while, just keep quiet and listen to everybody else, and it is honestly like being in heaven.
All the voices just blend to make beautiful music.
I personally love listening to cello compositions, and being in the midst of all of these people, gives me a feeling of happiness that I’ve had only on occasion outside such a setting.
For example, I’ve found that I can’t be truly sad when listening to strings. It’s the same with when I’m rehearsing or ministering with my choir.
I might become wistful, which my dictionary defines as thoughtful sadness, but never truly sad.
But this is no longer the case, of recent I’ve been actually sad and depressed, not just thoughtfully so. It is so annoying, because this used to be my sanctum, my place of peace and some tranquillity. But that illusion has been shattered by my annoying episodes of depression, what is really pissing me off is that I don’t know what causes these episodes, I just discover that I can’t enjoy what I used to love.
So today we have put on a brave face to see if I can begin to enjoy music again.
This is a song I listen to whenever I have an internet connection. The highs and lows of the song, are perfect to me. And the title is my personal message, to remind me to never give up, to always continue, to be myself.
A world that is accepting of me fully as I am is not yet a reality, but I won’t stop being me. I’ll stay until there is one.
And just like the Oscar speech by Graham Moore “Stay different,stay weird” Our turn is just around the corner.
Was just web surfing and just stumbled on this YouTube channel. They have amazing songs and right now I’m fan-girling Together by Paradise ft Grace.
