TOP 5 FAVORITE SONGS OF ALL TIME
“Neon,” John Mayer
I discovered John Mayer in high school. “Neon” is a song that brings back fond memories of driving the streets of Houston at night and the freedom I had back then as a 16 year old.
“My Girl,” The Temptations
I grew up listening to oldies and my mom and I would always sing this song together. The song has a way of bringing a smile to my face every time.
I love Fleetwood Mac and this cover of “Dreams” by Leon feels so raw and honest. I relate to the song a lot.
“It’s Well With My Soul,” Audrey Assad

“The Way You Make Me Feel,” Michael Jackson
You can’t have a top five list without Michael Jackson. “The Way You Make Me Feel” always makes me want to sing and dance — two of my favorite things to do.
