Clay Aiken – Music Moves Us & Soothes Us


What is Music? Why am I so touched?

Why do I feel better after listening?

I love the following short essay about music by the talented Annie Lennox:

What is music? Music is pure magic. It is a wonderful gift to humanity. Music moves us, and soothes us. It stimulates. It makes us want to dance or sing. It makes us feel happy or sad, inspired or uplifted. It affects our mood in all kinds of infinite ways. It can be exquisitely subtle or wildly raucous: from lullaby, to a war cry for revolution.

Music also tells stories, breaks hearts, reduces us to tears, or seduces us into falling in love, over and over and over again. Music is a universal language. A human creation from a divine source… perhaps.

Music is a mystery, a code. A vehicle of spirit and soul. It is perceived through ‘hearing’ the vibration of sound, the most sublime resonance – from the eardrum to the brain. Music moves us beyond intellect to the heart-centre… ~ Annie Lennox

  1. “Measure of a Man” is the song I listen to the most. I love watching Clay’ performance!

  2. Such a profound and beautiful reflection and interpretation of what music is. And from no less than Annie Lennox who is a great musician/singer herself…

    I don't have a particular favorite because I love all of Clay's songs, I have it on my smart phone and I listen to all of them the whole day everyday.

    Thanks CANN!!!

  3. Clay singing 'Something About Us' is just beautiful. I stop whatever I'm doing when this song starts to play.
