For Angela Bassett, Music It’s the Language of the Soul

Golden Globe winner for her amazing performance as Tina Turner in What’s Love Got to Do With it Angela Bassett is very much in love with music as a universal language: “We can be from different parts of the world and just hear a strain of music and it can make us both weep” , she told us as we met for her role in TV series 9-1-1 We agreed that it might very well be the language of the soul and when I asked her how much it intersect with her love for acting, she said: “I have used it often, doing a play or a particular character I'll listen to certain songs or instrumentals and they really hit my spirit or soul and they just take you there emotionally.   Music is able to do that in a way sometimes just the straight word on the page might not be able to, but it compliments it.
