This original piece is intended to uplift the spirit and unify us together. It should be sung rhythmically throughout. It opens with the feeling of the earth spinning. The verses explain the inner complexity that we as individual faces on a daily basis and how we need to awaken our spirit in order to overcome life’s obstacles. The choruses unify the singers and the world as we become voice. The percussion is a reminder that life moves us forward and it is up to us to jump on board and take the journey that we have been given. Together, every heartbeat brings us closer, gives us faith and hope to carry on.
