“Life is all about finding our own purposes. We don’t live to die; we live for our own purposes. We all make mistakes, but that doesn’t mean that we have to give up. It’s all about giving our bests.” As the humid sea breeze made its way swirling into every single corner of the city, Miami, wrapping the nightlife into a never ending enigma, a youth in his early 20’s murmured these few lines into the microphone.
For a couple of moments the frenzied audience seemed to put themselves into deep introspection, probably thinking if they truly knew their purposes.
The voice again rang through the microphone, “You’ve given me the best gift I’ve ever known, you’ve given me purpose”. The whirling wave of exhilaration ceased as the youngsters let themselves swing with the melodic tunes of the piano.

Purpose, a perfect blend of creation and imagination, represents a true artist. It has the influence of a tropical house and has showcased a large collection of acoustic settings. With melodious number it has made its own place in the marquee of the forever living tunes and points out a legend in making.
