National Hug a Musician Day is celebrated in the USA on November 13th. This is a significant holiday that celebrates both music creators and admirers alike. What would the world be like without music? It’s difficult to imagine, so let’s join in the date and show our appreciation and respect to musicians with a hug!
The creator of National Hug a Musician Day remains a mystery, but one thing is certain: this person had a great appreciation for creativity. Music has been around for centuries.scientists believe that singing was used as a form of communication long before language. Ancient tools, such as drums and shakers, were used to create music. Strings were added later, and full-fledged orchestras were seen in European culture as early as 1500 years ago. The possibility of recording music was introduced in the 1870s, which opened up a whole new realm of creativity for mankind.
The 1980s saw the launch of MTV, a channel that played music videos around the clock. It was so popular that many fans admit to never turning it off! The internet came soon after, and to this day it is a fantastic way to promote creativity.
- Musicians earn less than 10% of the revenue generated from their tracks. The rest goes to recording, arranging, labels, and advertising.
- About 90% of all musical talent goes undiscovered. There are an incredible number of people in the world that haven’t had the opportunity to become popular.
- There were more paid musicians in the late 1990s than there are now. Despite the current abundance of singers, this fact is still surprising.
