Selma has interesting music scene

If a picture is worth a thousand words, then a melody is worth a novel.

I can write all of the elegant words that I want in an attempt to manipulate your feelings, but always fall short of what a few good bars of your favorite tune can do.

If you can’t already gather, I love music.

Ask anyone from our office and they will tell you that I am always singing something or trying to find new artists that I don’t know about to get into.

I love it so much that Friday evening I serenaded, yeah, we’ll go with that, the fine young ladies at McDonalds who were working the cashier because they heard me singing to myself while in line and asked to hear more.

While most of the music scene in Selma is not normally what I’m into, there are some great opportunities upcoming to listen to great performers putting on shows during great events.

To begin with, if you haven’t seen clips of the Auburn Singers, find a computer and YouTube some of their performances at the school and Central Park in New York City.

They are very good and a real treat for us to have the chance to go listen to on Feb. 22.

Then we have the Bridge Crossing Jubilee, which will feature a lot of different performers, ranging from gospel to rap.

The whole weekend will be filled with great music from some fairly popular artists like V.I.C., Lenny Williams and Paul Porter.

So get ready for some great tunes with some great times and as it is said in the movie August Rush, “The music is all around us, you just have to listen.”

I hope you guys are ready to listen, because it will be well worth it if you are.
