MUSIC MANTRA MONDAY: A MIND-BLOWING Night At the Grammys. One of my favs: BRUNO MARS
2122122555 by YardieGoals
Welcome to another MUSIC MANTRA MONDAY segment. One of my favorite things to do on this segment is to share music that I've 'discovered'. I have a doozy for today.
It was about 9:00 last night and I was just settling in to work on my huge pile of editing jobs I have to do. I'd forgotten to turn the t.v. off so the Grammys came on in the background. It was fine, though. I can usually tune it all out. But when BRUNO MARS came on, I couldn't concentrate on anything else but his amazing performance.
From the first beat, he had me hooked. This guy has it all: Talent, a voice, an awesome look AND one of the most kick-butt back-up bands EVER! I think what intrigued me was that his entire band was right in step with everything he was doing. I mean, he had the entire audience up and movin'. What I loved the most was that he and his band weren't just up there playing music; they felt it. You could tell these guys have music in their souls and love nothing more than sharing that passion with the world.
SO to celebrate my new found admiration for this 26-year old bundle of energetic awesome-ness, we're sharing his performance from the Grammys here today. Feel free to share your thoughts, any concert experiences (if you have any) or any other comments with us. (I'm sure we'll be 'seeing' Bruno here on 'The Gift' again very soon.)
