Can music bring people together?

As a universal language, music can bring people together, enhance the mutual understanding between different countries, and be a source of energizing inspiration and hope. The power of music to connect on a local, national, and international level is tremendous. Being a music fan is a way of being a part of a community, of belonging to a group with whom you feel a connection. The common love for music can transcend boundaries and common differences. I believe in the unifying power of music.

Does music have the power to heal?

I believe that music can help people with many different physical and emotional disorders or diseases. Music brings beauty, harmony, and pleasure to life. Music gives us the opportunity to connect with the innermost part of our being. On a scientific level, studies show that patients who listen to music are less anxious, and recover more quickly.

Do you believe in humanity?

Yes, I believe in humanity. I believe in the power of kindness, compassion, understanding, and tolerance. I believe that all of these things are distinctly human. I believe it is in our nature to look out for one another, no matter our fundamental differences. I believe that the very nature of being human transcends any and all differences we as humans have. I believe and will continue to believe in humanity.

Do you think that humanity has a future beyond Earth?

For the time being, I think there is nowhere else in our solar system that is as comfortable as our own planet. We must address our problems here. However, I believe that by the next century, there will be some people living on other planets, such as Mars. Within a few centuries, I believe they will have become a new species.

I am a new artist. How can I build my e-mail list?

When it comes to building your e-mail list, the easiest way to do it is by having a subscription form on your website. Make sure it is an eye-catcher, and add a sentence or two telling people what they can expect when they subscribe. If you are a performing musician, live events are another great opportunity to grow your e-mail list. You can also use some social media platforms to let people know about your e-mail list. And always remember three things: You need permission to e-mail someone. Your e-mails should always be valuable, engaging, and not sent too often. Allow people to unsubscribe if they no longer want to receive your e-mails.
