Celebrating 74 weeks of Hive Open Mic
The 74th consecutive Hive Open Mic event ran from September 5-11, 2021, with the theme: Protection. This theme was selected by Spotlight Artist: @susamusic, who is a youthful ray of sunshine, and a fantastic song carrier. It feels fitting to start the highlights with the song she shared this week.

¡Bravo amigo!. Que buena composición y muchas gracias por compartir la historia que te inspiró a traernos esta melodía tan melancólica.

Muy bueno todo en esta publicación. ¡Que tengas feliz semana!. —@jesuslnrs

Today's weekly update showcases a small selection of songs that stand out to me personally. Numerous other songs can be celebrated, beyond this list of newcomers and gold stars. My intention is to acknowledge the excellent artistry, the supportive community involvement, and above all else: global harmony—this is what our community stands for.
Behind the scenes, Hive Open Mic moderators devote many hours each week to listening, commenting, curating, and creating for this community. The moderation task is a big undertaking, and I'm thankful to @mipiano and @jesuslnrs for their active involvement this week. Additional thanks goes to the OCD Community Incubation Program, who rewards our musicians with generous upvotes.
I am grateful to each of the Hive musicians who expressed themselves this week through the Hive Open Mic community. It is beautiful to witness the connections we create through the songs we carry and share. I believe the entire world benefits through the harmony that music gives to us. I appreciate the listeners among us, supporting the musicians, through claps, finger snaps, comments, and upvotes. Thank you.
