|Oprah With Sheryl Crow & Stevie Nicks|
I was surfing the guide on our TV last week and came across an Oprah show featuring women of rock. Of course I had to set the DVR as we were busy after school that day and I didn't want to miss this show. With Oprah's long time run on daytime television winding down her shows have been outstanding and I knew this one would not disappoint.
So after my daughter's music lesson we settled in on the sofa to watch a bit of TV. I suggested the Oprah show and at first she wasn't so enthusiastic saying it was going to be all "old" music. Then I dropped the two words that so many kids growing up in the era of Disney and Hannah Montana cannot resist...now some of you may be saying, "Oh no she didn't!" But oh yes I did...I said, "Miley Cyrus." So all of a sudden the show seemed a bit more appealing.

The show also featured performances by Salt-N-Pepa and closed with Sister Sledge performing their hit "We Are Family." I can't tell you how many times I have danced to that song at a wedding.
All in all this show brought back a lot of great memories for me and I got to make some new ones with my daughter. I love when something as simple as a TV show can open up a great dialogue and become a teachable moment. The power of music is amazing!
Thanks Oprah for a show that gave my daughter a little more insight into some of the legends of music who just happen to be women and gave me a great trip down memory lane!
