PoWE! – Clap of end

Arts , Animation films Dec 31, 2016 No Comments

If we are thinking back about 2016, we can say that it was quite a year… of singers and composers lost! Incredible the party that might stand up-there…
So, why not hearing the best/most famous songs of those who passed away, since January, celebrating their creativity and good times we had with them!* You’ll find videos (and names) of the artists, by their order of death… so, absolutely not a ranking, just a chronology.

It is with this melting pot of styles and creations that the Playlist of your Week-End! finishes so, I hope you enjoyed this rubric, having musical post every weeks and maybe (re)discovered artists thanks to PoWE! Have a great New Year Eve and all the best to you for the new 2017 year!

*I have to admit that there are a lot of singers and composers that I didn’t know, at all… If you are like me, it will be also a good occasion to discover “new” names 😉
