BW (WBFF) THE BEAUTY OF MUSIC AND MEMORY 7 10 9 9 Weak opening shot. Other than that, amazing! Never watched a package that had so many memorable moments in it. So much emotion too. Great approach on what could've been a boring story visually. Stellar work. AD (WBFF) THE BEAUTY OF MUSIC AND MEMORY Wowie. You really layered the momenys perfectly. Wonderful job...not much to say. JG (WBFF) THE BEAUTY OF MUSIC AND MEMORY Great work! RM (WBFF) THE BEAUTY OF MUSIC AND MEMORY Loved hearing the music throughout and the reactions. Loved how the reporter wrote to the woman w/ dementia walking in on the interview.
