   Throughout the history of the music industry, there have been many exceptional artists and performers who have made their mark and have had a monumental impact on people all over the world. When an artist passes and his or her music lives on, this is referred to as a timeless classic. Music is passed down through generations and continues to live on long through generations. Some of my favorite artists on the list below, such as Michael Jackson are timeless, in my opinion.

   Some of my favorites are Morgan Wallen and Luke Holmes. They are both country singers who have rocked the world in country over the last few years with hit after hit. One of my personal favorites from Luke Holmes is and always will be Beautiful Crazy. All of the artists on this list are very talented and have reached people through their music all around the globe on a deeper level and making positive impacts. 

   Ariana Grande, for example, is a very famous artist today, and one of the reasons I love her music so much is that her voice, sound, and the music she produces are all very real, relatable, and, in my experience, always carries a great beat. Ariana Grande, I believe, has a diverse range of songs that have all become huge hits, and she has completely influenced the world and the music industry through her music. Since the majority of her music is pop-oriented, be prepared to get your head bobbing to the beat and sing along while listening to any of her tracks.

  Adam Levine, and the band in which he plays, Maroon 5, is another of my favorite bands. This band, in my opinion, is perfectly in harmony with one another and has extremely likable music. Their hits can be heard for on the radio weeks and even years after they were first released. In August 2018, the band was ranked 37th and 11th on Billboard’s Hot 100 60th Anniversary Greatest of All Time and on Billboard’s “The Top 60 Duos/Groups of All Time” respectively. This is one of the many reasons why Maroon 5, Bruno Mars, Harry Styles, Olivia Rodrigo, and all the other artists are some of my favorites.

  Here is a list of my top 10 favorite artists who have influenced me to be who I am today. These artists play an important part in my everyday life. This list is not a ranking of who inspires me the most as all of them inspire me equally in their own ways.

  1. Olivia Rodrigo
  2. Morgan Wallen
  3. Luke Holmes
  4. Michael Jackson 
  5. Ariana Grande 
  6. Justin Timberlake
