#MAGA_MVs (Music Videos) Part 1: Background & Links

thumbs-up-for-maga-mv-intro

Note. If you wish to skip the narrative and get right to the music, please go to Part 2/the next post, which consists solely of music video links.

If you would like to read the background first, please know that the links are included in this post,  following the narrative; you need not go to Part 2.

This weekend, the music industry will honor its own by way of the Grammies, and the fans who enjoy the artists’ music will be watching their favorites compete and be honored for their achievements this past year.

This weekend, then, seems like an apropos time, too, for those of us who are avid, grateful Trump supporters to honor “our own,” the famous and non-so-famous music artists whose music buoyed us and celebrated us during the lows and high of the primaries through the Inauguration–admittedly, for longer than just this past year.

Although I will be watching  music videos shared in this post, rather the Grammies, Sunday evening, perhaps you will be enjoying the televised extravaganza! If that is the case, I hope you will consider enjoing the #MAGA_MVs some other time this weekend.

Perhaps the videos I’ve highlighted will be familiar to you, and you will simply enjoy revisiting the MAGA phenomena through its relevant music: songs that celebrate the Trump Train, the MAGA message, and the determined spirit that infused it. Perhaps you will enjoy hearing the familiar instrumental rally entrance song, composed for Mr. Trump; (perhaps you might even imagine lyrics).  Perhaps you will enjoy experiencing the music of the RNC convention–or re-experiencing if you were in Cleveland or saw the music on tv.

Perhaps after re-experiencing the campaign music videos, the victory songs will be even more appreciated–and the blessing of the win will become more treasured after recalling  the incredible work for it and the incredible odds against it. In that vein, if you have time to enjoy just one of the music videos identified in this post, please consider viewing “Deplorables Unite,” which is as sobering as it is affirming. We are participating in a far-reaching endeavor. Perhaps you will come away from that music video convinced that we have the obligation to provide ongoing prayer support, which I ask that you do, with shared prayers and memes, at #Pray4DJT each day!

Post election, from the Pre-Inaugural Concert, there are three memorable patriotic music videos, set against the backdrop of the Lincoln Memorial. And from the Inaugural Prayer Service, there is a stirring spiritual music video to warm your heart and to inspire gratitude to the One who gave us the victory.

Finally, in keeping with our POTUS’ commitment to supporting and honoring those who protect us, there is a music video that acknowledges the sacrifices of our fallen heroes/families. We owe them a tremendous outpouring of spiritual and material support. God bless them all.

If your favorite MAGA music video–from the campaign or the Inauguration–is not included, please share a link in the comments section. Thank you! God bless our President and God bless the USA!

Enjoy the musical reminiscence! Hope it reminds/renews in us gratitude and resolve to do our part to MAGA3X for everyone!
