The New Class of Music
Music has impacted many decades and more to come. Music has a great impact on people and culture. From old school to the new school, music will always have a strong power over things which many other things do not. SZA and H.E.R stand for the new age of music. Their music is different and amazing. Who is H.E.R ?........I can not answer that question. Oh whale. (Yes I spelt it wrong.) You may find out her identity tomorrow, next week, next month, new year, five years, or never. Hehehehe.(laughs in a evil laugh.) H.E.R music is soulful, r&b, and pop.My favorite song from H.E.R is focus. It is always on repeat. I am very surprised I did not break the replay button yet. S.Z.A music is soulful, hip hop, r&b, and a dab of rock. SZA even wrote a song for the actress Drew Barrymore. Cool right? Hands down I love The Weekend from SZA. Now who is old age of music? I can give two examples. Bobby Brown, the king of R&B. Also, New Edition. The old school of music has influenced many generations. Even this generation. Today's generation is any one can get famous through the internet. Also, we have the dumbest toys ever. SZA and H.E.R have amazing music and they are the new age of music. They are even bringing back old music.

When I first got on the cruise, there was awesome music playing. All day long, people were dancing. There was never a time when the dance floor was empty. During this event, I met and talked to many kind people. The cruise is a tour of New York City. Your breath with be taken away by seeing the amazing sights during the cruise. My favorite sight I saw during the cruise was the Statue of Liberty. I also loved the food during the Hornblower cruise. You are served your choice of burger, toppings and sauce. You also get fries on the side. I have to admit, the best chicken sandwich I ever had was thanks to this cruise. During the end of the cruise, no one wanted to leave. Laughter crowded the ship. My stomach hurt due to having so much fun. I would highly recommend going on Hornblower cruises. You can go for all occasions. Birthday celebrations, anniversary's, and more. To see amazing sights, meet new people, eat amazing food, Hornblower cruise is just for you. Hornblower cruises is for all ages!
