W. Puscie Jones Stated:
Music is the heartbeat of the soul. It’s life. Music is the most positive communicative contribution we’ve given to the world. Music sets the way we walk, the way we speak, how we make love, how we eat & drink, and the way we live. Music is powerful and overwhelming but beautiful and sometimes tangible. Giving people music gives me satisfaction. The feeling that I get when the crowd is totally into what you’re doin’ is beyond amazing. That’s when it’s palpable.
“ …[Music] gives you something to stand with and stand for…” – Ms. Lauryn Hill
