    Is this sentence correct grammatically?

    Hello,

    Is this sentence correct?

    And at the end we will hear these songs to add a little bit beauty and freshness from the French world for today.


    Thank you.

    With "of" before "beauty" it would be grammatical. I'm not sure what it means, though.

    It's grammatical with "of". But it's awkward and unnatural.

    Did you mean "the French world of today"?

    Thank you very much for replay .
    I meant the time we'll listen to these songs. For example, this evening.

    (This situation may takes place on radio station, for example).

    Please note that a better title would have been And at the end we will hear these songs.

    No. Bhai said: "... a little bit of beauty...."
    I'm not a teacher. I speak American English. I've tutored writing at the University of Southern Maine and have done a good deal of copy editing and writing, occasionally for publication.

    "the French world of today" would be good as well.

    What bhai said had no bearing on my reply. I was replying to the OP. If you note the post times, you'll see that they overlapped (or you could deduce that they probably did). This happens occasionally.
