Our Sunday musical adventure is still going strong at Week #46. At this juncture, we’ll be giving a listen to the track, Sunday Morning, as performed by American Idol creator Simon Fuller’s Now United… a nationality-diverse pop music ensemble showcasing 15 vocalists. Since late 2017, these latter day troubadours have been wandering into our lives / homelands (especially Brazil, India and Philippines). Their mission: To raise their spirited voices in song to promote both musical and societal harmony.
That very outlook is ensconced even within their name. Acronymically speaking, NU is to Now United what UN is to the United Nations.
That’s the precise frame of mind that’s much needed (and oft lacking) within our troubled world… where musical and societal harmony (to say the least) are not always in accord.
While we must never give up on our dreams and hopes for the betterment of society, there’ll be times when we must pack up our baggage and take our minds out for a spin… i.e., crank up the feel-good music and venture forth on a figurative (maybe even literal) road trip.
There’s nothing wrong with occasional escapism on a Friday / Saturday / Sunday… provided we make that a round trip back to Monday Morning Reality… when / where we’ll get back to work… working towards a better world… a better tomorrow.
I hope you’ll return seven tomorrows from now for our next Sunday Song. Till then, have an enjoyable, productive, harmonious week!
