What a year 2020 has been! This year the entire world was hit hard. Airports, schools, and just about everything else was shut down as the world scrambled to deal with the coronavirus pandemic. Despite how uncomfortable the situation has been, a lot of us are grateful for is the fact that there's one thing that didn't come to a stand still: music.
