Music and Lyrics

Both Sophie and Alex are encumbered by incidents from their past. What things hold Sophie back from achieving her goals? What keeps Alex from success? How do they help each other face those barriers?

Although Alex fails to attract the attention of today’s teenagers, he has an avid following among their mothers. Do your musical tastes vary from your parents? How about your grandparents’ generation? Are there any artists you all enjoy?
