Emmanuel Jal said that music can change the way you think about yourself as well as your surroundings. He also affirmed that he only ate one meal per day and that even though he was suffering of starvation, music was able to help him during this rough period. How can music really change the way you perceive your surroundings and do you agree with what Emmanuel said about music?


In my opinion, I do agree with the Emmanuel's view on music which is that it can change your perception of your surrounding and can help up though rough times. When I listen to music, it transports me to another world according to the atmosphere of song. Thus, it is easy for me to comprehend that an individual going through rough times turns towards music to make them forget or get through this difficult time in their life. Music is like a marriage, it is with you through the good and the worst.
