I Love Music: The Destiny’s Child Edition.

I was filled with nostalgia recently when I watched Beyoncé Knowles, Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams perform as Destiny's Child at the Coachella music festival.

Janet Jackson's music is like comfort food; you go back to it when you're bored with what is trendy, and you want to experience what is uplifting and what you are certain you will enjoy.
