Heal the World… with art

Art can be labelled as the appreciation of beauty because to everyone beauty is defined differently whether it’s the way someone looks, the rich taste in food, or even music. An object’s beauty would appear to be a relational, mind-dependent property – a property it possesses in asset of its capacity to affect observers in a certain manner.

Immanuel Kant presented an idea of an aesthetic judgment as a judgment that must be founded on a feeling of pleasure or displeasure; he insisted that a pure aesthetic judgment about an object is one that is unaffected by any concepts under which the object might be seen; and he tried to show that the implied claim of such a judgment to be valid for everyone is justified. But how acceptable is his conception of an aesthetic judgment and how successful is his attempted justification of the claims of pure aesthetic judgments 

 

 

There’s A Place In
Your Heart
And I Know That It Is Love
And This Place Could
Be Much
Brighter Than Tomorrow
And If You Really Try
You’ll Find There’s No Need
To Cry
In This Place You’ll Feel
There’s No Hurt Or Sorrow

There Are Ways
To Get There
If You Care Enough
For The Living
Make A Little Space
Make A Better Place…

Heal The World
Make It A Better Place
For You And For Me
And The Entire Human Race
There Are People Dying
If You Care Enough
For The Living
Make A Better Place
For You And For Me

If You Want To Know Why
There’s A Love That
Cannot Lie
Love Is Strong
It Only Cares For
Joyful Giving
If We Try
We Shall See
In This Bliss
We Cannot Feel
Fear Or Dread
We Stop Existing And
Start Living

Then It Feels That Always
Love’s Enough For
Us Growing
So Make A Better World
Make A Better World…

Heal The World
Make It A Better Place
For You And For Me
And The Entire Human Race
There Are People Dying
If You Care Enough
For The Living
Make A Better Place

And The Dream We Were
Conceived In
Will Reveal A Joyful Face
And The World We
Once Believed In
Will Shine Again In Grace
Then Why Do We Keep
Strangling Life
Wound This Earth
Crucify Its Soul
Though It’s Plain To See
This World Is Heavenly
Be God’s Glow

We Could Fly So High
Let Our Spirits Never Die
In My Heart
I Feel You Are All
My Brothers
Create A World With
No Fear
Together We’ll Cry
Happy Tears
See The Nations Turn
Their Swords
Into Plowshares

We Could Really Get There
If You Cared Enough
For The Living
Make A Little Space
To Make A Better Place…

Heal the world we live in, save it for our children
Heal the world we live in, save it for our children
Heal the world we live in, save it for our children
Heal the world we live in, save it for our children

 

Michael Jackson’s song Heal the World is a beautiful song that shows art with the lyrics and message that comes a long with it. On February 3, 1992, he created the “Heal The World Foundation”  and spoke about that during during a press conference the goal of the foundation is to provide rescue to world-wide children; protection against abuse; care giving; delivering medicines for children and fight world hunger, as well as to convey awareness on children’s rights and necessities, and improve world’s life standards. It is clear that these are things that Michael cared about and that is shown through his humanitarian work. However he left us with his song Heal the World that’s aim is to open the mind of his audience in ways that they can give back. The song is to heal the world, to make it a better place for you and for me and whole entire human race. He tries to make it clear that YOU can change or “heal the world” from what it has become and “make it a better place” caring for homeless people and helping the poor feeding the hungry. It’s about world peace there are much more important things than politics or government.  If we care about the people who are living in poverty and do something to help them the world would be a much better place. Jackson tried to send a message  about his strong beliefs in helping the world through his music to the audience in a different way than just making a speech, it was done in an enjoyable  that can still however impact you in ways that make you stop and think even if it’s just for a moment and to me that’s art.

One thought on “Heal the World… with art

  1. What i like about this song, is it conveys messages similar to what k’naan (the artist i did) does. It all relates the importance of humanity and world peace. Not only does it encourage helping others, but gives us the realization of appreciating what we have. Considering most mainstream music we listen to nowadays encompasses meaningless lyrics, its good to know that some artists still create music with the view of humanity.
