Whether it’s the lyrics, the beat, the melody, or the space in between, our wish is that this music feeds your sense of hope and belief – even if just for a few minutes.

Imagine – John Lennon

You may say I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one / I hope someday you’ll join us, and the world will be as one

This song never gets old.

Together – Sia

Stand up, raise your face to the sky, my love / Together, we can take it higher

From the beat, to the colors, to the message, it’s hard not to smile while listening.

You Gotta Be – Des’ree

You gotta be cool, you gotta be calm, you gotta stay together / All I know, all I know, love will save the day

This song has the power to heal souls.

My Corona Home – “Kokomo” Parody

It’s been thirteen seconds since I last went to go wash my hands in my Corona home

This parody video, shared by a friend, reminds us that laughter is the best medicine!

I Will Survive – Gloria Gaynor

I will survive / Oh, as long as I know how to love, I know I’ll stay alive

A message of resilience mixed with some much-needed dance nostalgia.

The Climb – Miley Cyrus

My faith is shaking but I gotta keep trying / Gotta keep my head held high

 When times are tough, this song reminds us that we are tougher.

Don’t Stop Believing – Journey  

Don’t stop believin’ / Hold on to that feeling

Need we say more? The only bad thing about this song is that it ends.

Rise Up – Andra Day

And I’ll rise up, I’ll rise like the day / I’ll rise up, I’ll rise unafraid / I’ll rise up, and I’ll do it a thousand times again

A song for when you need the strength to face everything.

Let it Be – The Beatles

And when the night is cloudy there is still a light that shines on me / Shine until tomorrow, let it be

Was there ever a song that gave more comfort?

Don’t Worry, Be Happy

Bobby McFerrin 

In every life we have some trouble / When you worry you make it double / Don’t worry, be happy

Be a warrior, not a worrier.

Keep Your Head Up –

Andy Grammer

The glow that the sun gets right around sunset helps me to realize / This is just a journey, drop your worries, you are gonna turn out fine

Keeping our heads up during quarantine!

What the World Needs Now is Love – Burt Bacharach

What the world needs now is love, sweet love / No, not just for some but for everyone.

Love sweet love… From 6 feet away…
