Thought for the Day: My plan for today was to bring some inspirational music in honor of all those who are celebrating Passover & Easter this week. I also wanted to tell people about a wonderful website that helps unsigned independent artists get heard online. I started listening to music that seemed appropriate & ended up in the world of classical music. Then, I stumbled upon a child prodigy violinist Akim Camara who was all of 3 years old when he performed for the first time with Andre Rieu. I decided to post several of this young violinist's performances from 2005 till 2012, so that you could see his amazing progress.
Somehow the progress of a young artist fit with reporting about Sunset Island Music, which produces the #1 Music Show on the net for unsigned bands & indie artists. It has over 2,000,000 listeners & encourages all unsigned bands & indie artists to sign-up on their website to be eligible for play on their Radio Shows. They feature multiple genres of music. You can also learn more about them & friend them at www.facebook.com/sunsetislandmusic.
I hope you enjoy both the classical music & that the musicians among you check out Sunset Island Music. Come back tomorrow for Sunday's Comic Strips & on Monday for Motivational Mondays. Have a wonderful holiday weekend!
