Do you ever just make up silly songs just for fun when you're at home alone? I feel like a lot of us do, but rarely do we ever share them with the world. Well, right out when the pandemic hit, that's what Sarah Maddack Bell started doing. Now, several of her silly songs have gone viral and she's created a social media platform where she can spread positivity and joy.
Her songs are goofy and a bit annoying — her words, not mine! And that's on purpose. It's all about not taking yourself too seriously and being willing to have and just be yourself. I so appreciate Sarah's perspective on life and how she followed a feeling to pursue what felt right and fun for her. Her story is one of faithfulness in God and using the talents — as silly as they may be — for the purpose God gave her. Also, as you may imagine, with such a public social media presence and one centered around what many may perceive as "dumb" and annoying songs, she's gotten a fair share of nasty messages. We get into that and how she's dealt with rude comments from strangers as well as staying grounded despite her platform growing. Check her on Instagram and TikTok @sarahmadbell. You can also find her music on YouTube, Spotify and Apple Music.
