If You Were A DJ…

I recently suffered the loss of my grandmother who was extremely close to me. She had been suffering from dementia for eight years and after further research on this disease, I realized that she had lived around the average lifespan associated with that disease. I felt like my world was coming down on me until I started playing music a few nights after she died. It was almost 2:30 in the morning before I retired for the night. I then realized, as a DJ, how music can effect everyone differently.

I ended up on a road trip to Chicago recently and on the way back to Detroit, we listened to about three cd’s it changed the mood of the whole trip. Again music can be the catalyst for so many emotions, so I got to thinking, if you were a DJ, what would you play?

If at this very moment you were behind the table and you have to play a song that described what you were feeling, what would it be?

Today…it would be …Beautiful – India.Aire

  1. Sorry for your loss,

    I a way I relate, my grandmother passed about this time a few years ago. She was a gospel singer. I was teaching a high school art class when I got the news. In the room was a record player and a short stack of waz that I’d brought from home.

    I walked in told my students what was going on and played “A Love Supreme” by John Coletrane. By the end of the week half the school was singing the chorus in the halls.

    Thank you

  2. Hey NinoMo,

    Sorry to hear about the loss of your grandmother. I know where you are as my family had a recent near death experience with my grandmother on my father’s side. My grandmother requested all of the family to come to see her at the hospital before her recent surgery and I truly believe in the power of prayer and families coming together as my grandmother has made a tremendous recovery and is no longer in the hospital. So, I pray that God will keep you and your family in HIS protective light at all times. So, with that if I were a DJ I would play and would dedicate to you and your family, “Strength, Courage and Wisdom” by Indiarie. BTW, music has helped me through the “ups and downs” and the “highs and lows” of life! I thank GOD for the music always! Keep shining!
    peace & continued blessings,
    Shell H.
