This is the level of writing quality you can come to expect on a Friday afternoon from me.
But we saw this video today, and with all going wrong in the world lately, there's nothing wrong with taking the time to smile. It's also great to see young people with so much raw talent.
A cappella arrangement of "I See the Light" from
, "You'll Be In My Heart" from
and "Go the Distance" from
. Performed by Voctave featuring Kirstin Maldonado and Jeremy Michael Lewis.
Who else has the warm fuzzies? Judge me at your own peril.
There is a macro issue here. Every single part of that video required hard work. Those singers were born with talent, yes, but they honed it. They had childhood dreams of being singers. They didn't tweet about wanting it, they didn't just wish for it to happen. They probably didn't write petitions on WhiteHouse.gov demanding fairness in the vocal industry. Nope, they took their talent, they perfected it, they worked hard. Probably every day.
As did the writers of the original songs sung. The songwriters knew what they wanted from life and they went after it. The studio which hosted these singers doesn't operate on government handouts. The equipment was provided by businesses, this song is available for purchase on iTunes. #Capitalism
In short, nothing you saw here was brought to you by the government. It was brought to you by individual talent, ingenuity, creativity, and hard work. As the best things often are.
