Music Education: DNA
When I was younger I couldn't find anyone else who would sing and so I thought, hey, I'll start singing. I found that I can speak to the world this way and actually connect to people. One of my songs, “Confession”, is a great example of me, well, confessing, but also connecting to myself and people in my past. In this song and through these lyrics, I'm righting wrongs not only to other people but, most importantly, to myself. I left a lot of weight I used to carry in that song. Although I think I failed the song musically... forgive me “Confession”. My Music really has been my therapy.
