Musiq's | Musiqinthemagiq
It’s hard to imagine a performer working today with more heart and soul than Musiq Soulchild. With over a decade on the scene, the multiplatinum singer/songwriter brings a new depth to his meditations on life and love with his sixth studio album, Musiqinthemagiq. Could he be the hardest working man in the business? At the very least, he’s got to be the most soulful.
“Soul music is something that you can’t fake. You’re just expressing yourself. That’s the magic in my music.” —Musiq Soulchild
A lot has changed since Musiq first hit the scene. He’s no longer that talented cat from Philadelphia who just wants to sing. Since then, he’s made the shift from his native Philly, where he honed his skills among the city’s prolific music scene, to Atlanta. He’s gone platinum not once, but twice, and performed with everyone from Mary J. Blige and Carlos Santana to Estelle and The Roots. As he readies the release of MusiqintheMagiq, he is eager to show fans yet another side, and perhaps let them in on the secret to his unforgettable blend of magic.
Tonight's Topic:Happy Mothers Day Daddy
There are many men raising children alone whether the other parent is absent by choice or by circumstance. How are these men handling the responsibility of being the single parent and attending to the many needs that children have?
Single mothers raising children by themselves seem to be able to switch gears when needed. When mom needs to be loving and caring she is and when mom needs to be firm and stern she can be. What about dad’s? Reasonably speaking can a father ….mother? Simply put can a man handle the nurturing and loving care a child needs as they grow that typically would come from their mother?
When children grow up without their mother should dad try to fill both roles or should he operate as he would if mom was involved? Women almost always instinctively provide that nurturing that comforts a child. What happens when a man can not tap into the nurturing side of himself?
Do men have the same ability to switch gears as women do? Would it be fair to say it’s more difficult for men to raise children solo than a woman? If you are raising children without the other parent what advice can you lend to another single man raising children alone?
