From the songs “Payphone” to “Wait” I have always been a Maroon 5 lover. The lead singer, Adam Levine’s, voice has always stuck out to me and his lyrics are very creative. Maroon 5 puts a lot of meaning and soul into their music, making it easy as an audience member to connect with their music. Ever since I was in sixth grade, I’ve dreamed of seeing Adam Levine in concert. I never thought I would get the chance to see him,so I was ecstatic when my mom got me tickets to see h
Football Coach Brendan Flaherty didn't even know it. But the team's playoff victory on October 19 against long-time-rival Seaholm was Flaherty’s 100th win.

Five years after Snoop Dogg’s “Reincarnated” album, a new album called “The Bible of Love” was released on March 16, 2018. Being off the charts for over five years, critics thought that Snoop Dogg had fallen off… and they were right. Snoop Dogg’s new album is awful!

It just repeats “I just want t
