Music can heal. Music heals even if we don't intend it to. Have you noticed that sometimes we come across a song that suddenly resonates with what we are currently going through, and we keep listening to it on repeat, and it makes us feel so much better?
I have also noticed it from my singing and from my students, and I heard the same thing from one of my teachers - every song or role you get to sing somehow reflects what is happening in your life. Even if you did not choose this song yourself, miraculously, it is still very relevant to your life. And it helps you to figure out something about yourself.
So, I started thinking: what music am I attracted to right now? I felt drawn to "angelic" music, songs about Heaven, God, soul and uniting with nature. This is how I came to the concept of my "Made in Heaven" program.
It was not a typical program with contrasting pieces changing each other. It was a plunge into this atmosphere, a journey through the mist into the light and a deep conversation with myself.
I made this program to heal myself, to acknowledge the past pains, to lay the past to rest, to forgive myself for not being perfect, to forgive God for the things in my life that went wrong (or so it seemed), and to reconnect.
During the rehearsals and recording, I have sung these songs hundreds of times, but I still keep coming back to them whenever I feel that I need them.
This program is now recorded and will be released on Spotify, iTunes, YouTube and all major platforms song after song during 2023.
I want to say a huge thank you to the beautiful pianist Eun-Jung Byun who worked on this program with me and to Fountainhead Music & Recording Services for recording it.
If you would like to join me on this journey and hear the recordings we made, please follow me on Spotify, iTunes, YouTube or any of your favourite streaming platforms.
