Many of us cannot go a day without listening to music.
During this pandemic we see so much evidence of the power of music in bringing us together, with concerts such as One World, the music clash hosted by No Signal or the various Instagram lives from artist. The One World concert raised $127m for coronavirus relief efforts. WOW. Impressive!
The No Signal radio-show have been organizing a gameshow ‘#NS10v10’, where, two contestants each pick 10 songs from two different artists and the listeners vote on the song. One of their recent shows saw 670,000 listeners from over 99 countries voting on what artist they believed was the better.
Many songs are written with the sole purpose of bringing people together. Perhaps music is the wonderful tool we need to bring people together at a time we physically can’t.
