Music is what feelings sound like

Just ran across this when reading an article about BYU's Vocal Point on NBC's "The Sing Off" (if you haven't seen it yet, check it out!!!) This show gives me goose bumps for an hour straight every Monday night. Every vocal group competing on the show has amazing talent. It is difficult to sing accapella (and oh so fun!) and all these groups have mastered it. I am proud of Vocal Point for making it to the final 8!

"I don't think that the old idea of music being the "universal language" is simply a nice thought or a clever adage from the past. If you've ever experienced music...and I don't just mean listened to or sang, but REALLY experienced music...you can begin to understand the literal power that can come through combining moving melodies with meaningful messages. If we'll allow it to, music can temporarily transport us away from what sometimes can be a harsh and seemingly impossible reality."

I still have not seen this show. Sounds like I need to. :)
