Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

I never thought I'd love, but it's touching and it's the art music

I think that you should watch it with the perspective of your love for music. I love that it talks about the connection of music to the body, soul and spirit.
