Can You Hear It? The Passion Of The Music?

A message without words being spoken

Kandis Snyder

When you hear the word music, what comes to your mind? Is it the songs that you hear on the radio? Is it the sounds you hear from instruments being played? Or is it everything that you hear around you from the honking of car horns to the stomping of feet?

Well, to Julianne Wilroy, music is so much more.

Wilroy, 20, hails from the industrial cradle of Prattville, Alabama. She explained that she loves music because it brings her, and a lot of other people, joy. Music is also present in her family whether they are humming in the house or dancing in the house. She grew up in a church setting where music was constantly surrounding her. Wilroy can not only sing but also plays instruments including the guitar, drums, and piano.

Wilroy decided to take her love of music to The University of Alabama where she's studying music therapy. She said she loves music therapy because music brings her a lot of peace and happiness, she wanted to share it and spread it with others that are not fortunate to be around such a gift.

At first, she thought she was going to be a nurse because most of the women in her family have been nurses, but she also wanted to incorporate the music in the medical setting. She wants to make someone who is feeling sad and angry to become happy because of the music she brings them. She describes the music as a message without words. After graduation, Wilroy wants to use music therapy while staying in Alabama in a hospital setting. Wilroy also mentioned that if that does not work out, she wants to travel to Florida and work in the Disney Hospital with the kids there. She said that she thinks it will be a lot of fun and likes the idea of getting to sing kids songs all day. She said it would be a miracle if her music could touch a child's life and inspire them to keep fighting.

Now in her junior year of college, Julianne Wilroy is determined to make a difference with her music.
