Music and Project TED

I love music.  I think I have to attribute that to the home that I grew up in.  There was always some form of music being played, sung or created.  When I get up in the morning and don't have to go work the first stop after the bathroom is at our computer where I-tunes is turned on and not usually turned off until its time for bed.  I am the type of person that has to have background noise to think.  If I am under a deadline at work and need to focus, I close my office door turn up my ipod and bury my nose in work.  When I was in school I would study at the coffee table in front of the TV and in coffee shops because I needed the hustle and bustle around me to focus.   

When I got older and someone helped me connect the dots and identify feelings of the spirit, music took on a whole new role.  It was amazed how some music could bring the spirit into my life more quickly and powerfully than any devotional and how other types could remove it faster than an all out screaming match with one of my siblings.  My play list is extremely eclectic list.  It will literally go from The Mormon Tabernacle Choir to anything by Pink (she is my current favorite) with flashbacks to Erasure, Match Box 20 and Micheal McCleans greatest hits.  I am very open to music and willing to listen to almost anything once. 

My wife showed me this video a few months ago.  It is about 15 minutes long but completely worth taking the time.  You will be enriched and better for watching it.  It is about an internet chior from Project TED you can check out their website for more details.  But it is one of those cool ideas that has grown to be something truly amazing.
