Who Do You Think is the Greatest Artist?


Kayla Page, Writer

Music. What are the first words that come to you mind when you hear that word? So far the words expressed to the word “music” were “passion”, “history”, “puzzle”, “emotion”, and “message”. People view and interpret music in different ways, but it depends on the person. But what I want to know is who among all these talented artist is deemed the greatest in your eyes.

Music is equivalent to the word diversity. It doesn’t just come in one style, but many styles from their original state and then taken and transformed into a whole different master piece. It is artwork like this that has me thinking, “Wow, these people can create such work like this.” These styles are called genres and sometimes are even combined to create something new. There is hip hop, R&B, pop, jazz, country, rock, gospel, and many more.

The music that artists  produce, just like any poem or painting, express this passion from the artist that has a story to tell or situation that needs to be address. It could also express the feelings and emotions of the artist. Often, we can identify what they have experienced or their opinion on a subject. Now after this background information it’s time to get to the main event.

Artists of different genres or multiple genres create different types of music. It is because of this diversity that we tend to have more than one favorite artist. Believe me, I know from firsthand experience. If you were to ask people of different generations, we would hear of the more current artists we have today, but then you will hear those rare cases where you have no idea who they are talking about. But then again, it all depends to what you are exposed to. So, my question to you is, “Who is number one in your book?”
