Standing Up For Music

Several years ago, my bestfriend asked me to go with her to watch a movie. Guess what? This was not just an ordinary Sci-Fi or love story film; neither a horror nor a drama but the filmography of one of the icons of the 21st century. I bet you already heard the term Bieber Fever. Yes, the film that we watched was the life of Justin Bieber entitled Justin Bieber: Never Say Never.

This may sound awkward because we watched it not just in a regular movie screening but in 3D. Whoa! Justin Bieber in 3D! Forgive me but she’s my bestfriend, and by the way, she got the tickets and we haven’t paid for anything because she won it in a contest.

On second thought and to tell you honestly, Justin Bieber’s life was interesting. They’ve presented the video clips from the time that Justin was starting his career until Usher has discovered him. His parents motivated him as a performer because they saw a potential to their child.

When Justin was just starting his career, he joined several contests and he performed in their school programs as well. He even performed along the streets just to showcase his talent alone with the used of his voice and a guitar amplifier similar to behringer amplifier at Musicians Friend. At this stage of his career, you could not only see the potential but his eagerness to be in the industry.

I think that’s one of the keys to be successful in this kind of passion. You have to show your big heart that you want to share your talent willingly. You have to stand up for the music you are willing to play in your life. You have to bear in mind that even if nobody is actually listening to your music or paying attention to what you are doing, there will always be someone who would appreciate that which could be reason to keep on moving forward!
