Clay Aiken – “Music Is Pure Magic”


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. Something About Us is very beautiful – there are just so many others that I love, too! It’s just not possible to pick one. If Clay is singing then I really love whatever he is sending out there. I am taking them all in and loving them

    because he has a very special way of connecting – he really feels the song and that makes it a favorite – no matter the song! It’s so much more than just singing – Clay has a way of making it very personal – long answer for a short question!

    Sorry – but thank you for the beautiful video!

  2. Love all the pictures and especially the video of Clay, singing one of my all-time favorites:
    "Something About Us"

  3. Thank you for the pictures and video. '"something About Us" is one of the all time favorite songs that Clay sings. If you want a list of songs, the list is too long. The videos that you show Clay singing are the best. I am glad you show the pictures and videos on this website. I am happy every day when I see CANN. Thank you again.

  4. I also love anything clay sings and I tell ya hes indeed aging very well just like a fine wine and I also love the picture
