Every time the Christmas season rolls around and I hear bells, I get a little nostalgic.
I belonged to a handbell choir when I was in high school, and I always looked forward to playing Christmas songs during our holiday concerts. It’s been many years since I’ve made music with bells, but now I’m wishing I had this lady’s awesome outfit so I could jam out whenever the mood strikes.
Julie Sewell must love the winter holiday, because she spent hours putting together a bodysuit with 12 bells on it. Her outfit may seem a little strange at first, but it becomes seriously impressive once she starts playing “Carol of the Bells.”
Talk about coordination!
Say what you will about her suit, but you can’t deny that Sewell completely nailed that performance. You go, girl!
London is famous for having street pianos dotted throughout open spaces, parks, malls, and waterfront areas. They act as a musical canvas to inspire and produce spontaneous creativity.
Recently, a nine-year-old Icelandic girl named Ásta Dóra Finnsdóttir came across one such piano at the Crossrail Place Roof Garden in Canary Wharf. The unusual and quirky-looking piano, decorated by a local artist, called out to her. She simply couldn’t help but sit down and play “The Turkish March.” Her rendition of the classical song was so breathtaking that commuters stopped in their tracks to take in the beautiful music.
What a talented young lady. I just love how her performance was greeted with such a generous applause and even high fives from the passersby.

For 37-year-old mother Rachael Wooding, taking the stage at “Britain’s Got Talent” should have been a piece of cake. She had a long history of singing in musical theater, after all. But, when she stood up in front of millions of viewers, no one would have blamed her for being a bit nervous.
When she opened her mouth, though, her version of “With You” from the movie “Ghost” was so magical, it took everyone’s breath away.
Given Simon’s affection for Rachael, it’s hard not to agree that this woman truly has talent!

Not to brag, but I was pretty great at flute in my middle school band. In fact, I was the only one from my school selected for the upper-level class when we transitioned to high school. But then it got too hard and I quit.
This guy is making me reconsider my musical roots, though. Creating an awesome tune doesn’t have to be complicated! You can use even the simplest of items at your disposal to compose something incredible. You will never look at a milk shake the same way again.
Does he give straw lessons? Because I would totally sign up.
