Music has existed since the beginning of time. People have always sung songs danced to music, and played musical instruments together.
Music is an integral part of our lives, yet it’s often taken for granted.
Music is a universal language that connects people all over the world. It has no borders or boundaries, so it’s easy for us with our differences to find common ground.
This is because of its ability to transcend cultural barriers and connect people on an emotional level, which can be especially important when is trying to make new friends.
Music is such a big part of our lives. It is something that is universal and everyone enjoys from every culture. There is not a day that goes by where we don’t hear some type of song playing. Music is a big thing that connects us all together.
When we listen to music, we are using our whole brain. Scientists are still trying to figure out how exactly music affects us as much as it does, but what they do know, is that music has a very beneficial effect on the brain. One of the biggest effects music has on our brain is health benefit.
Music can raise someone’s mood, get them excited, or make them calm and relaxed. Music also – and this is important – allows us to feel nearly or possibly all emotions that we experience in our lives. The possibilities are endless.
Young Hearts Africa was brought together because of a love of music and how it connects people. People of all races, genders, social backgrounds and religious beliefs. For us music is the bridge we use to build friendships, partnerships and a global network of caring likeminded individuals that come together for the love of music and children.
Music is the vehicle through which our organisation communicates our message of hope and raises funds for our very deserving projects and benefactors.
We are not bound by any specific genre of music but our passion lies in classical crossover, utilizing classical, choral and vocal renditions of songs that bring hope, inspiration and peace.
