“In my experience, music is an opportunity to relax when things are stressful in my life. It provides relief and it has always been a safe heaven and I know that I can always depend on that organization. It is something that helps me escape. It is also a healthy opportunity for people to keep themselves grounded. Singing conveys many emotions- motivation, excitement, inspiration and expression.”
