Epic albums of the year:

  • Taylor Swift, 1989
  • Mumford & Sons, Wilder Mind
  • Adam Lambert, The Original High
  • Selena Gomez, Revival

And I’m guessing Justin Bieber’s album PURPOSE (https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/purpose-deluxe/id1049605561) be added to this, as will Macklemore’s.

Selena’s album is amazing.  And I love how she shot “Same Old Love” with a live audience of her fans that had no idea that this was happening.  She’s come a long way since Wizards of Waverly Place (one of the best shows ever) and demonstrates great strength and maturity.

She is a child star who didn’t have to go off the deep end to find out who she was.  My prayers are with her as she battles lupus.

Rise” is now my wake-up song.

you can stand beside the madness like a fallen tear,

you can hold onto the sadness like a souvenir,

or you can close your eyes, and see light

like the ai-i-i-r.

you can tap into the strength you never knew you had,

you can breath into your faith no matter where you’re at.

just close your eyes, and change your life,

like the ai-i–ir

like the air you can rise from the ruble with your mind you can hover,

you can rise like the tide, and the heat in the summer,

as i know there are those who will want to bring you down but you can rise with your mind and make your higher power proud

you can rise (like the air)

you can rise.

the earth can pull you down with all its gravity,

and the measure of your worth is sometimes hard to see.

so just hold on, when the night is done

like the su-u-u-n

like the air you can rise from the ruble with your mind you can hover,

you can rise like the tide, like the heat in the summer,

yes i know there are those who will want to bring you down but you can rise with your mind and make your higher power proud

you can rise (like the air)

you can rise.

so even when your bones feel like weights, and it’s hard to lift the smile on your perfect face you can still find a peaceful place, close your eyes, til you feel like you’re floating in outer space.

it’ll be alright, they’re just jealous of your highs, so they can knock you down but

like the air you can rise from the ruble with your mind you can hover,

you can rise like the tide, like the heat in the summer,

yes i know there are those who will want to bring you down but you can rise with your mind and make your higher power proud

you can rise (like the air)

you can rise (like the air)

you can rise (like the air).
