I am a very lucky person in that I have been surrounded by beautiful music all of my life. My parents always had something wonderful, fun, engaging playing in our home. I remember as a young child listening to music in the car with my Dad and him encouraging me to identify what instruments were playing. Unfortunately, I never really learned to do much but sing and play a little penny whistle. My brothers on the other hand, can make magic out of music.
Two of them are wedding singers on the side :)

Micah in particular has made music his living. He was hired by our local PBS station, KBYU recently to do a whole bunch of music for their "Beehive Stories" segments and "The Generations Project". He also does all of the "in-between" music on that channel. It's so fun to be watching a show with the girls (we watch a lot of PBS in the mornings) and then hear them exclaim "That's Micah's music!" Most of his short "in-between" segments include him humming...I love his humming...it calms my soul.
Anyway, I thought I'd share some of his stuff with you.
One really cool thing that happened: He did a commercial for Big O tires and it actually aired during the Super Bowl! I'm not a football fan but it's kind of a big deal...I've posted it here (if you take a moment to listen, you can hear him singing).
This is one of the many he did for the "Beehive Stories" airing on PBS right now:
