Tuesday Tunes Link-up #3: Inspiration

Good morning all! It's another strangely spring-esque beautiful day here in California...like where's the rain!? I'm hoping it comes to visit us soon 'cuz we sure need it!

Welcome to Tuesday Tunes, a musical link-up about sharing a song or artist of your choice. If you choose to participate (you know you wanna!) you can follow the themes above or just go with your own. Also, there is just 1 more week for this link-up, so hop on :) Read more below!

My Inspirational Pick:
His name is Jackie Wilson, known by many as 'Mr. Excitement'. This artist made his doo woop/soul/blues music popular in the same time period of the severe racism in America. I imagine the significance he held for the black community at that time to make it to where he was. He went viral in the 1950's and 60's and after watching the video I understand why. His music is just so catchy and happy. Jackie and Elvis very much respected and were inspired by each other. I was just surprised I'd never heard of or recognized his name before. But it seems very fitting in honor of MLK and black rights.

There are some interesting stories and history on this blog if you want to read more, Jackie Wilson Lover.

Link-up Guidelines
1. Share your musical post. Use whatever platform works for you - YouTube, SoundCloud, Vimeo, etc. 
2. Link back to this site so others can join in the fun! You're welcome to use the button I created below :)
3. Link-up on Tuesday(s). Tuesdays are ideal (because alliteration is awesome), but the link-up is open all month long.
4. Browse some other musical posts from the link-up and leave some love for the wonderful ladies.

Have a beautiful and groovin' day!
