Music certainly does have a powerful effect on the human mind and on our emotions. When we hear the right song under the right circumstances, it has the ability to lift us out of the depths of despair or make us more thoughtful of the things that are happening in our lives. Some songs even seem as if they were written exactly for us.
Every once in a while, a song is written and performed in such a way that it becomes extremely popular. The song may be played on the radio for many years and it doesn’t matter how many times we hear it, it still has the ability to give us goosebumps when it is played. Although the song may be decades-old, it still is just as new to us as it was the first day it was played.
One of those songs is the Sound of Silence that was originally performed by Simon and Garfunkel. It seems as if this song is timeless and it is not only nice to hear them sing it, it is also nice to hear other people cover the song as well. At times, it may even be a surprising voice that covers it and they sing it so beautifully, it really makes us stop to listen to it all over again. That is the case with Todd Hoffman, somebody that many people know as the star of the Discovery Channel show, Gold Rush.
When most people who know Todd Hoffman think about his personality, they think of them as being more of a businessman, family man or just a hard-working individual. As it turns out, he is also quite talented when it comes to his vocal cords and this video goes above and beyond in showing his abilities.
