I love all genres. Country, thrasher, screamo, dubstep, hiphop, pop, rap, 80's, 90's...anything really. Music has always been like a friend to me. I could relate to it.
David Who?, Nebraska

My husband and I are folk music singers, and we perform songs that have been in existence in some form or another for hundreds of years! It is the music of the people, of their joys and struggles and ordinary moments. Music is a part of our humanity, an expression of our most raw emotions that go beyond words. I believe music is truly great when it is an honest, authentic expression of those emotions.
Kat, Florida

Because I have composed symphonies, concertos and string quartets, I have a deep connection to the idea of Great Music. The goal is human joy. Joy is both a perception of and a response to beauty. All Great Music contains beauty, a beauty which is recognized across cultures and across centuries. This is why most Pop Music cannot be considered "Great". Most Pop music is tied to one decade or two decades. Bach's music still gets us going 300 years after it was composed. We can only create Great Music when we look into ourselves, and find joy, and learn to express our joy.

Just want to know if it is Randy Travis who sings that song in the values commercial Devotion. Regardless. I would love to buy it. I love music that touches my heart and soul. Thank you
Cynthia Miller, North Carolina

I love music. I love being at a concert when tens of thousands of people are singing a song back to the artist in unison. It restores my belief that the human race is capable of great and positive things. To me, it is hope personified and exemplified. It speaks directly to my soul and will often bring me to tears; to see so many people act in peaceful unity. Music is such a powerful motivator.
Amy Evans, Macomb, MI

wow...
