I'll bet you though this was about sex... Shame on you!
I am often amazed by the number of truly talented artists, actors, dancers, poets, writers and musicians I come across on a daily basis. Of course, thanks to YouTube, we can see these folks whenever we want. Still, every once in a while, one finds something truly exceptional and extraordinary. Such is the case with young flutist Jeemini Lee.
I wish I knew where I first saw the video I am about to share. I posted it on Facebook this past Sunday, but only one of my friends seemed to be as enamored of it as I was. I've watched it a dozen or more times and I am still fascinated by it. This high-schooler actually beat-boxes while playing the flute. Yes, the piece she's playing was intended to be just that, but still... See for yourselves:
Amazing, no? It almost makes me wish I had kept up with those clarinet lessons I took in elementary school.
I may like to think of myself as artist. Indeed, many lesser and/or more talented folk than I think of themselves that way. But seeing something like that is both humbling and inspiring. There is no indication as to whether or not Jeemini won the competition in which she played this piece, though I know if I were judging that day, she would have gotten my vote.
That video helped lift my Winter Blues a bit. I hope it did the same for you. She's certainly an artist to keep an eye on. I've subscribed to her YouTube Channel and can't wait to see what else she has to show us.
If you have seen something which excited and inspired you, please share it with me. You know how much I love your comments.
