Does Height Matter in Music?

The only thing that matters when it comes to music is quality, fans don’t care how tall or short artists are, as long as they can convey emotions through art.

The great thing about all music genres is that we have representation from both tall and short artists who have made a global impact which is proof that height doesn’t play a part in one’s success. So no height does not matter in the slightest.
