Some of the best music out there hasn’t been discovered yet. Know why? Unlike the band above*, the artists have never really put themselves out there. Many don’t even realize how talented they are.
Seeds of greatness
I can’t tell you how many super-talented singers and musicians I have seen locally or online that are just doing open mic nights or just recording tunes at home for their friends. Granted, you do have the occasional online sensation who vaults to super-stardom. However, there are millions of others who, with a little bit of work, could be doing way more than they think.
What they also don’t realize is that they have a message to share. Some have been through something that would resonate with others or they have a cause or platform they care deeply about. But they don’t tell anyone when they’re performing! Even Christian artists! What’s up with that?!
Do you have any idea how many people you can help or positively impact in some way? Even if you don’t have a life-changing story, you most likely have some tunes that will make people feel good. Given all the crazy things that are happening in this world, those kinds of tunes are needed, too.
Your gifts were given to you for a reason. Here’s a video with a few examples and a challenge for you:
