As fall approaches and I begin to plan my family’s end of summer cookout, I’m reminded that music has been an essential part of holding our family unit together. Whether we’re listening to Bobby “Blue” Bland, Chaka Khan, Jay Z or Bob Marley, the nostalgia of these artists has been able to bridge the gap between the young and old in my family.
There’s nothing like a bit of jazz, blues, trap and R&B – with that one line dance that everyone knows – to bring family and friends together.
