its music to the point where it has become part of the culture in many countries. Nearly all musical heroes have stories of dedicated effort and devoted fans
around the world who understood and recognized the end product of that effort. Music, as they say, is a truly universal language.
American musicians and singers have effectively influenced music the world over. Through their music, they have brought
both messages of love and of tears to the hearts of many. Musical heroes, because their stories truly inspire, have influenced many individuals to
pick up a guitar or write words to a special song. The poetry and words in many American songs have helped musical heroes promote values within many minds.
Musical heroes are exposed to a changing world today where their songs and recordings are more easily attained
by illegal copying or downloading on the internet. This type of theft of copyrighted property deprives many musicians
from royalty rights and other income. Many musical heroes, however, are using the internet to further their exposure and are finding
new means to spread their musical endeavors over the internet and through cell phone technology.
