“I’ve always followed my love for music. Music is a universal language that everyone can understand without using one word. Music can bring out emotion from someone, make you reminisce, make you dance, make you cry, or make you turn up. I turn up everyday and celebrate the fact I do something I love. Talk about music, your favorite artists, interview them, national news, local news, politics, entertainment, and more. That is a blessing.”
