Meaning of Life Is A Song - Track - Mugshot Mic

"The Meaning of Life is a song portrays its' peaks of joy and valleys of heartache. Life is a roller coaster ride, a constant up and down, which defines our journey. None of us ever know what comes next in our lives. It can be scary and exciting at the same time. This song speaks about my journey as a singer and a performer. I love being on the road to entertain the fans. It speaks of people's imperfections that you meet along the way, some good, some bad, and even ugly. We never stop learning in our lives therefore one should question everything , so we can understand better, what is right and what is wrong." Mugshot.
