13 Of The Most Moving Musical Songs

The beauty of live theater as an audience member is feeling emotionally connected with the actors onstage. Reality melts away as you get sucked into their world, their thoughts, and their hearts. My favorite thing about musicals is how the music and lyrics contribute to the story and the characters. How the swells and inflections captivate the audience and force them to truly listen. Here is a list of 13 songs from musicals that give me all the feels.

For Good - Wicked

This song is all about friendship and growing and changing for the better. It will really make you evaluate your own friendships and make you want to force your friend to learn the harmonies to sing this song with them. And who doesn't love Idina Menzel?

She Used to Be Mine - Waitress

A pregnant woman from her abusive relationship evaluates her life and reflects on who she is and who she was during a time where she feels hopeless and alone. This song makes me tear up every time.

You Will Be Found - Dear Evan Hansen

Mental health is extremely important and even more important is for those who are suffering from depression and suicidal thoughts to feel supported and heard. Also, I'm obsessed with Ben Platt.

I'd Give My Life For You - Miss Saigon

This song is so powerful and perfectly reflects the true and fierce love of a mother for her child.

Wishing You Were Somehow Here Again - The Phantom of the Opera

Anyone who has lost a loved one can relate to this song. It is about a young woman remembering the father she lost and loved and trying to move on with her life without him.

Falling Slowly- Once

As one of the more well known songs from Broadway, this simple song is simply beautiful.

It's Quiet Uptown - Hamilton

This song takes place after the death of Hamilton's son. A truly unimaginable tragedy for anyone.

All I Ask of You - The Phantom of the Opera

All I want is for someone to sing this song with me. The sweet and tender lyrics with the beautiful music gives me goosebumps.

On My Own - Les Miserables

Heartbreaking. Les Mis is full of beautiful songs but this one breaks my heart.

Those You've Known - Spring Awakening

After mourning the loss of two of his friends, a young boy decides to live and to carry his loved ones in his heart. I'm also obsessed with Jonathan Groff.

Far From the Home I Love - Fiddler on the Roof

Everyone loves home, but sometimes life must take you away from your home. Hodel is torn between leaving her family and her home and joining her love. But maybe I'm biased towards this song because I performed it in high school.

I Know Where I've Been - Hairspray

This song always made me cry, and especially with everything going on now in our country it's an important song to hear and to truly listen to.

Seasons of Love - Rent

One of my all time favorite Broadway songs ever. The lyrics say it all. Remember the love.

Hormone health impacts everything, including the workouts that are best for you.


Women with polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) deal with a lot of uncertainty in their life.

I talked to Nikki Pebbles, a certified personal trainer and group fitness coach, to talk about the kind of workouts that are best for women who are dealing with PCOS.

I began suffering the symptoms of PCOS — acne, fatigue, weight gain, and an irregular cycle — when I was about 16, but I wasn't diagnosed until about nine years later.

The symptoms were, of course, frustrating, but I am now thankful for all of the time I spent trying to manage them naturally with my diet, herbs, and vitamins. Now that I am diagnosed, I do take a small dose of prescribed spironolactone which has helped immensely, mostly with my skin.

I'm not one to talk about personal issues, like the first-hand misogyny I experience as a woman, usually because it makes close family and friends uncomfortable. However, I have recently become exhausted with the number of comments I get, so I decided to rate all the ones I received in the past month to prove that misogyny is alive and real.

With the pandemic, so many of my friends and I discussed how it was hard to find new things for date night when so many places were closed. It seems like date nights were just endless nights of bingeing Netflix and stuffing my face with Halo Top and SmartSweets. I tried those other date night ideas like cooking together and playing cards. But even those things can get old after a while. Finally, I had it and decided we need to make date nights COUNT again, even if we had to social distance.

Here are 5 different and unique ways you can spice up date night with your partners.

"To Kill A Mockingbird" by Harper Lee. This classic novel has found itself in the hands of nearly every high school student for the past decades. Ahead of its time, the themes of racial injustices and loss of innocence have certainly sparked many healthy conversations in classrooms.

- Since my late teens, I have had wavy, unruly hair that is susceptible to frizz from heat damage.

- I've made a conscious effort to try and eliminate heat styling products from my hair regimen in order to do less damage in the form of split ends and hair loss.

- When I first tried Tineco's MODA ONE Smart Ionic Hair Dryer, I was immediately amazed by how quickly it dried my thick strands and how straight/sleek my hair was with minimal work.

Up to my late teen years, my thick, soft, silky straight hair was the envy of nearly everyone I encountered. I totally took it for granted till my hair began to evolve into being more wavy and unruly with random patches of wavy and straight hair.
