Mara Hruby

My music sharing friend, Rodrick, told me about Mara Hruby a while back. I downloaded the album, put it on my iPod and went about my business. Recently, I’ve been giving her EP, From Her Eyes a lot of play. She’s got a pretty voice and does well handling men’s songs. Looking forward to more Mara.

This Van Hunt cover, “Character”, asks a very important question we should all reflect on. Enjoy!

Mara Hruby – “Character”

Who are you in the face of disappointment?
Where is your character, the one that keeps you going?
Who are you when heavy weather is blowing?
Where is your character, the one who keeps you going?

Be inspired: just do it.

Last night, I had the great pleasure to be present at the John Legend and The Roots perform songs from their new album, Wake Up! I was inspired by so much and for so many reasons. One of which was, for me, the highlight of the show, when Mrs. Jennifer Hudson strolled on stage and covered the gospel song, “Be Grateful”. It was beautiful. You’ll see. 🙂

Also touching was John Legend and The Roots covering Bill Withers’ “I Can’t Write Left Handed.” All kinds of awesome. Watch below and enjoy.

I realized my follow-through is what’s holding me back, or the lack thereof, more accurately. There’s a tune in your heart. May not be music. May simply be any call, feeling, urge to do something, express something, share, heal, love. Follow that call. Just do it. (I’m talking to us.)
