MUSIC MONDAY: Overseas Soul

    Who said soul music was reserved only for the beautiful people of brown skin tones? And who said that good old fashioned sangin' only came out of U.S.? Well when you find them, use all that power invested in you to call them out. If they didn't know that there are some amazing overseas singers that can roll with the best of them, then they've been living under a rock. The overseas singers on today's BQC playlist definitely got soul and these foreigners are blowing up not only on the home-front but are blazing on the U.S. charts as well. I, for one, support the Foreign Music Exchange program if that means I can hear more from the likes of Adele, Daley, Corinne Bailey Rae, Amy Winehouse, Natasha Bedingfield, Marsha Ambrosius, and Estelle. These are just some of the international soul stars that have graced the radio with their pure raw talent. (Adele, Daley, and Corinne being 3 of my favorite) Music is the universal language that allows us to relate to people even when we have no idea what they're saying either because of different languages or extremely heavy accents. Music defies the boundaries that separate our physical locations. We're able to enjoy music form all over the world and what we find is that the similarities in our taste of music connects us more than it divides us. Happy MUSIC MONDAY!!
