We all know what music is and everyone’s choices of music are different, but in one line, we can define it as “Music is the voice of the soul.”
Music expresses our feelings which we can’t put into words and at the same time can’t remain in silence too. We tend to listen to music in almost every situation like when we’re happy or sad, when we feel lonely or when we miss someone. Sometimes music is the only and perfect medicine the heart and soul needs most.
