The Emotion Potion-Hunter Hayes!!

Let’s talk about Hunter Hayes!!!!! Besides the fact that he’s obviously just going to be my future husband, his new song “Invisible” that premiered at the Grammy Awards, was probably the most moving performance I’ve ever seen. He’s one of the few performers who really love’s making music and sharing it with people, and you can see it in his face and you can even hear it in his music.
After listening to his music for a couple of years now, and being a music business major at Berklee, it is safe to say that he is one this generations greatest songwriters. Not only does he make great music, but his songs have actual, powerful meanings.  I want to look at the song invisible with you:
Verse 1:
crowded hallways are the loneliest places
for outcasts and rebels
or anyone who just dares to be different
and you’ve been trying for so long
to find out where your place is
but in their narrow minds
there’s no room for anyone who dares to do something different
oh but listen for a minute
Chorus:
trust the one who’s been where you are
wishing all it was sticks and stones
those words cut deep but they don’t mean your all alone
and you’re not invisible
hear me out
there’s so much more to life than what you’re feeling now
someday you’ll look back on all these days
and all this pain is gonna be invisible
oh invisible
Verse 2:
so your confidence is quiet
to them quiet looks like weakness
but you don’t have to fight it
cause you’re strong enough to win without a war
every heart has rhythm
let yours beat out so loudly
that everyone can hear it
yeah i promise you don’t need to hide it anymore
oh and never be afraid of doing something different
dare to be something more
bridge:
these labels that they give you
just cause they don’t understand
if you look past this moment
you’ll see you’ve got a friend
waving a flag for who you are
and all you’re gonna do
yeah so here’s to you
and here’s to anyone who’s ever felt invisible
yeah and you’re not invisible
hear me out
there’s so much more to life than what you’re feeling now
yeah someday you’ll look back on all these days
and all this pain is gonna be invisible
it’ll be invisible
Now if you can’t relate to this, you’re probably not human. I was harassed in 7th grade and literally everyday felt like I was stuck in hell and no one cared. Where was this song when I needed it?!
Anyway, I am one to say that Hunter Hayes is indeed a prodigy. From his wee toddler years he began learning musical instruments and now is able to play 30+ instruments exceptionally well. Since the beginning, he has spent the rest of his life perfecting his craft and performing, as well as working with major names like Dan Huff (producer), Hank Williams Jr. (musician), and Robert Duvall (actor). He loves what he does, and he does it well.
Me personally, I’ve found that every single one of his songs makes me feel something, not just a brain emotion but I can physically feel it. “Invisible” though, has by far brought the strongest emotions. What makes Hunter Hayes a true entertainer is that you can hear his emotion and passion for his own music when he sings. I can’t tell you how many big name artists who have no emotion, they just make faces and think that counts as feeling something. You can be an amazing singer, you can amazing at writing music, but at the end of the day, sometimes not the most popular performer, the most amazing will be the ones who feel what they perform and write themselves.
Hunter Hayes is the only artist I know who isn’t about being a performer. He’s about making music for himself and sharing it with the world, and that’s a true musician.
