~We Always have Been, We Always will Be~
I find myself so pulled by the negativity and awful events taking place in our world nowadays. Sometimes it’s so overwhelming that I can’t really breathe.
I can’t fathom or wrap my head around the level of inhumanity, greed, vileness, evil, violence, crime, injustice and so much more that inhabits this world.
Music helps me.
Here’s an example.
Yael Silver (Tony-winning producer Once On This Island), Robin Carus and Van Dean (Broadway Records, President) today released “We Are The World,” a music video featuring an all-star roster of theater artists and calling for healing and unity in the world today.
“More than ever, people need to know that their voices make a difference and their voices together are incredibly powerful,” said producer Yael Silver.
“We Are The World spoke to us universally and we wanted to share our united voices with the world.”
