My youngest sister was married, on a rainy windy day outside in a gazebo. Despite the whether the wedding went well and I was sure that my dad was crying during it. After the wedding she and her husband had a reception, it was at this reception that I witnessed something that I don’t think I will ever forget. The chicken dance song came on and everyone (I mean everyone dance to it. Fun stuff huh? I don’t know what it is about music but something just gets a hold of people and doesn’t let go.

This morning I heard on the radio about a concert in which one of the singers attended from beyond the grave. That’s right one of the singers at the Coachella performing on stage was actually a hologram. This is wild huh? When the living and breathing performer was asked about this he commented on how it felt “spiritual” to be playing again with his lost friend and how the music was so powerful. I have to agree with him music is powerful. I watched music make everyone at the reception dance like a chicken, laugh, loosen up and have fun. Music is put to use in films at parties, all kinds of events and in our lives. 

So we read the weird now it is time for the sad, yesterday an American icon, who was no stranger to music passed away. Dick Clark 1929   – 2012, was the host of American band stand. American band stand was one of the most popular shows on tv. The show showcased talent of some of the greatest acts in pop and rock and roll. Dick Clark was adored by the youth and respected bu the parents he understood the power of music and seemed to wield it wisely and responsibly.

Dick Clarks passing is sad but the music will live on and I am convinced his memory will also.

Rest in Peace Dick Clark

peace
