Everyday billions of humans in this planet use their voices to convey, liberate and unshackle their emotions and feelings by talking, laughing, screaming and even cursing. But nothing that is more amazing and beautiful than a piece of brilliant music that is made by a vocal artist though the resonations produced through his or her larynx, pharynx, oral cavity, tracheal tree and chest.
It is interesting to note that human voices alone are more than adequate to create beautiful acoustic sounds, which may make grand musical instruments less glorified. In fact, some young Acappella vocal artists today are able to, singlehandedly, produce great music with the help of modern technologies without any instruments involved. Tonight I’d like to invite you guys to listen to Peter Hollens’s cover “I Won’t Give Up” - a song was recorded by Jason Mraz previously.
Just in case, anyone doesn’t know the term “Acappella”, please permit me to “demystify” it for you. In plain English, A cappella or Acappalla means a singing made without accompanying any instrumental sounds.
Peter Hollens and his wife Evynne Hollens are both the new breed of young artists who devote their talents and energies to make Acappalla music.
Hopefully, you would close your eyes in your chair, enjoying the music as I am doing after a day of hard work, letting a human voice to smooth the dark and rough edges away.J
