Mteto Maphoyi: We Sang Not for the Money. We Sang for Unity.

In Uncategorized on March 24, 2013 at 8:00 am

I made a decision that on Sunday’s I would post a blog concerning something that inspires me. This young man, Mteto Maphoyi, from South Africa does just that. After facing such a difficult life surrounded by grief and violence he was able to hold on to one beautiful thing. Music. Take 12 minutes from your busy day and listen to his story.
Music is one thing that is international and touches the soul with its message and beauty. A song can take you back to a time and place and remind of people places and feelings. Very early in life the story of ourselves is set to our own soundtracks. How powerful this thing called music is. The drumming of rain on the roof, a lullabye, smooth clean jazz, the blues and of course some rock and roll, it all touches us. All of us. Amazing sounds.
Below is a link to Mteto singing at the TEDX Teen event. Listen. Listen closely to his beautiful soul. I am continually amazed by people on this earth.
