This lockdown period is already been 2 months long in some countries. And, we do not know how much more time will it take to get things back to normal. Nobody knows for how much more time a person has to stay like this. Therefore, it is very important for all to retain themselves. At this time, retention matters a lot.

You will be having numerous number of songs and change them as per your mood.
I have a solution for people who like to sing to overcome stress and depression. If you are a singer, lockdown is the best opportunity for you to work on your vocals. You have plenty of time to find out ways to improve your voice culture.
Not only musicians but for everyone else also, this is the best time to find your real potential. You can utilize this time for your own betterment and after this lockdown ends you will be a better version of yourself.

Music is something that keeps us connected in any kind of situation through musical videos, audios and much more. Many people have taken the initiative to start many online competitions to keep people engaged through different activities in this situation.
Sharing videos and audios can boost up a person’s confidence when he gets good reviews from people. Also, it becomes a source of inspiration for many people to do the same. People develop a sort of invisible connection with each other through social media activities.
If we upload good music, it will help us to connect with more and more people. Ultimately, it will divert our mind from negative things and make us feel positive and happy.
