I am a big fan of music, no matter they are from west or east, and no matter they are classical music by Beethoven or popular songs by Micheal Jackson, BSB or Westlife. I enjoy listening to songs and also singing songs so much that my MP3 almost accompany me everyday, every where. In my spare time, one of my hobbies is to use CoolEdit software to record my own song album.
I like music, because I believe a saying (by whom I forget) that music can give the soul the highest enlightenment. Music comes from people and life, and I always believe that good composers insert their own experiences and wisdom of life into the music. Good music comes from the souls of composers, so that is why their composition could further touch the heart of listeners.
Recently, I am very fond of a song, called “When You Believe” by Mariah Carey and Whitney Houston. This classical song is definitely not a new one and have been heard by lots of people. I know the name of this song for a long time, but recently I first time listen to it. It touches me so deeply that it has become my stand-by background music in my Chinese blog.
“There can be miracles, when you believe, though hope is frail, it is hard to kill; Who knows what miracle, you can achieve, when you believe, somehow you will, you will when you believe.” Like I mentioned before, good music comes from composers’ heart and further enlighten listeners’ soul. I think the lyric reveals some true feelings about life. When we are young, we all have dreams for life, and we have various expectations for life, but when the light of dream is trying to penetrate into the fog of reality, the distance always seems long. But should we give up? The answer of this song is “NO.” Dreams, miracles, these are words that seems far away from reality, but they indeed exist and would show their face someday, as long as you believe it and keep pursuing it in reality.
The voices of Mariah Carey and Whitney Houston are so fantastic and they interpret this song in a perfect way. I am thinking of learning their way of singing and cooperating with one of my friends who is good at singing, and record this song together with our heart and souls and belief.

Just one day after I finish this blog, I heard the sad news about Whitney Houston, and I feel astonished and sad. So, this essay seems to have another meaning–memorizing this great female singer. I will remember all the wonderful songs and all the moving and touching moments she brings to my life.
