Day 119: From Indonesia with Love (August 16, 2015, Sunday)


She is from Indonesia, 17 years old, a senior high school student.

Why I became friends with her over a week now is because of our common interest—our love for Westlife.

Westlife might have disbanded for some years now but their influence lives on. Their songs, their music will be passed on from generation to generation.

Today, I take time to thank the Lord for giving us the gift of music. Just try to imagine what the world would be like without music? I don’t know. I cannot imagine life without it.

From rap, to rock to pop and ballad to jazz and country, music has played an important role in letting us express what we feel like.

The only challenge that we have now though is the challenge of choosing which songs do we listen to.

Well, here’s my suggested Top 10 bands/singers you can consider listening to, apart from Westlife.

  1. Jeremy Camp
  2. Chris Tomlin
  3. Hillsong United
  4. Vertical Horizon
  5. Lifehouse
  6. Planetshakers
  7. Creed
  8. Jose Mari Chan
  9. Gary Valenciano
  10. Papuri Singers

*relentless is a Wattpad story I wrote that features westlife songs.
