A Year In Music 2011

Wow what a year it has been for great music, finally!!!! I fell in love with so many new artists and rediscovered my love for past artists. I am going to give my likes and hey maybe you will learn to love some new music threw me. Some I have listened to in the past but fell more in love with them this year or some I just tuned in. Music should be spread and shared by many. It helps us get through our day,struggles,emotions. It helps us when we want to party or be sad. Their are many roles and as someone who owns way too many cd's to count and has been to uncountable numbers of concerts I am a hardcore music lover so lets begin......

                                                     Female Artists- that I listened to this year

Adele- Ok we all know her, and you either hate her or love her. Her voice is nothing but pour soul. Both her albums are truly amazing and I can relate to her emotions on so many levels. You may cry or you may be happy when you listen to her. You may get weak or you may gain strength but this woman has an amazing set of vocal cords and I can't wait for her next album.
