If most of you buy your albums on iTunes, you would have seen at #1 on the charts this week was an album entitled The Heist by Seattle based Hip-Hop/Rap duo, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis. In case most of you are not familiar with these two, maybe you should be.
I got familiar with the duo not only after I heard many of my colleagues blasting about them on the interwebs, but after I heard the duo's swan song about the Seattle Mariners entitled "My Oh My" which was a catch phrase used by the late Dave Niehaus the longtime voice for the Seattle Mariners, which the song was a tribute to.
However, it was a song that the duo released with Mary Lambert entitled Same Love. A song to advocate for marriage equality for gay men and women. A song so powerful that when it was played, people including myself got pretty choked up. If you don't believe me, listen for yourself.
