Original Music Video
Music education is so important to us because it opens up an entirely new lifestyle. Because music is about more than JUST the sound. it's about the words, the movement and the feeling and effort which help us as kids, teens and adults, express ourselves in a healthy way that can also help others. Our teachers show us what exactly it means to be a "musician" and they truly care about us and our music. Without them and without music ed, life would be boring and probably a lot more violent. There is absolutely no way that taking away music ed from schools could be a positive thing at ALL, and every adult who has a say in a decision like that should realize just how important music is to us and the world. it is a necessity, just like the food we eat or the air we breathe. Music is life.
The song itself was written actually a little while before we both heard about the contest. I (sodasia thompson), wrote this song because my music teacher had one day asked me to think about life without music. and the day after, i had the whole song. I saw this contest advertisement on TV and immediately called my classmate who excells in multimedia and said, "WE HAVE TO DO THIS". Our music teacher knew that we would do something great together and helped us the entire way through.
The biggest challenge for us was definitely editing the video and putting it all together. there was a lot of time and hard work spent on making it perfect and really making it a part o the song itself. the music came really easily because when you're passionate about something, and everybody is, you make time for it always and it literally becomes the flow of ones own emotions rather than making words rhyme or fit together. overall we had so much fun with this project and we really appreciate the opportunity to tell the world why music should never be taken from us.
