What is Jazz? Is it a type of music or is it a lifestyle? Ms. Halie Loren was the performer, sharing to us about her rhythmic lifestyle. Halie explained that music was always in her life, especially jazz. Halie inspired me not with her lecture but with her voice. It told the story of her life, joyful with the hardships of one. Her voice was smooth with a bit of rasp, that made a perfect jazz singer. Loren then shared about what a songwriter does and how she can take her life experiences or something make believe and express it through her music. She started off with a few songs that we would know in her jazz style. Listening to the original version versus a jazz remix made the song a whole lot different. Haile Loren will not be a name I will forget and I know she has made me a better songwriter and singer.
