If 2017 was represented by bitter anger and shocking sadness, 2018 was the awareness and action that follows. It was a year filled with celebrations of different cultures, the power and wisdom of women, and the acknowledgement of mental health issues. As usual, the world of music was a direct reflection of these mile markers.
We saw a woman dominate country music, a hip-hop poet write one of the best soundtracks ever made (to a groundbreaking cultural film), and emo music surge into another wave. 2017 sucked but 2018 was a glimpse of hope.
It was a reminder that we are powerful. Each of of us is powerful.
