YET ANOTHER HALLELUJAH COVER

~Little Girl Belts Out Hallelujah Next To Pentatonix Stars~

MUSIC IS THE LANGUAGE OF THE SOUL

As I’ve said before, for some unknown reason, covers of this song keep ‘popping up’ in my feed.

Here’s another one.

This song has attained a new meaning in my personal musical library.

It reminds me of so much … This one is so very special:

Kaylee and Pentatonix!

Hope you enjoy this one!

11-Yr-Old Kaylee Johnson has gained legions of fans since her recent appearance on “Little Big Shots,” when famous a cappella group Pentatonix joined her in singing a rousing rendition of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah.”

But what many fans don’t realize is that the little girl was diagnosed at an early age with mild autism and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. According to her teachers, Kaylee rarely spoke, much less sang, until just recently.

But that all changed last year, not long before she shot to viral fame with a Christmas-themed remake of “Hallelujah” with her choir at Killard House Special School in Northern Ireland.

INSPIRING STORY

With the year’s passing of beloved musician and composer Leonard Cohen, it only seems fitting that his timeless song “Hallelujah” should be going viral once again.

At the Killard House School’s choir concert in Donaghadee, Northern Ireland, young Kaylee Rodgers sang a stunning version of Cohen’s most classic tune with modified lyrics. Kaylee’s voice is soaring and rich, but it’s her story that is perhaps most uplifting.

Kaylee happens to have autism and ADHD, and because she was so shy at school, she had a hard time participating in class.

The principal of Killard House, Colin Millar, explains that she

“wouldn’t really read out in class … so to stand and perform in front of an audience is amazing …

It takes a lot of effort on Kaylee’s part.”

Kaylee’s music teacher, Lloyd Scates, played a large role in helping her find the confidence to sing.

Her mother divulged that “she always loved singing, but it wasn’t until she started at Killard House School that she really came into her own. Mr. Scates is like her safety blanket – he’s amazing.”

Watch the video below to witness Kaylee’s touching transformation.

The lyrics of this modified version were written by contemporary Christian rock band Cloverton.

ST. PATRICK & THE SNAKES

St. Patrick’s Day, which is celebrated worldwide on March 17, honors St. Patrick, the Christian missionary who supposedly rid Ireland of snakes during the fifth century A.D.

According to legend, the patron saint of Ireland chased the slithering reptiles into the sea after they began attacking him during a 40-day fast he undertook on top of a hill.

TELL ME WHY

A dear friend posted this video to my Facebook Timeline yesterday.

As I researched about it to post today, I realized that this event took place 13 years ago.

We see that our world reality hasn’t changed since then.

If anything, it’s gotten worse.

The lyrics apply today as much as they did back then.

Can anyone tell me why?

~Guinness World Record~

On 9 December 2002, the largest choir in history, drawn from all parts of the UK and Ireland, joined Declan to sing ‘Tell Me Why‘ for a Guinness World Record. The event was organized by ‘Young Voices in Concert‘.

Funds from the record-breaking attempt were donated to the Sargent Cancer Care for Children.

LYRICS

In my dream, children sing
a song of love for every boy and girl
The sky is blue
and fields are green
and laughter is the language of the world
Then I wake and all I see,
is a world full of people in need

Chorus
Tell me why (why) does it have to be like this?
Tell me why (why) is there something I have missed?
Tell me why (why) cos I don’t understand
When so many need somebody,
we don’t give a helping hand
Tell me why?

Everyday I ask myself,
what will I have to do to be a man?
Do I have to stand and fight,
to prove to everybody who I am?
Is this what my life is for,
to waste in a world full of war?

Chorus
Tell me why (why) does it have to be like this?
Tell me why (why) is there something I have missed?
Tell me why (why) cos I don’t understand
When so many need somebody,
we don’t give a helping hand
Tell me why?

Chorus
(children) tell me why? (Declan) tell me why?
(children) tell me why? (Declan) tell me why?
(together) just tell me why, why, why?

Chorus
Tell me why (why) does it have to be like this?
Tell me why (why) is there something I have missed?
Tell me why (why) cos I don’t understand
When so many need somebody,
we don’t give a helping hand
Tell me why?

Chorus
(why, why, does the tiger run)
Tell me why (why, why do we shoot the gun)
Tell me why (why, why do we never learn)
Can someone tell us why we let the forest burn?
(why, why do we say we care)
Tell me why (why, why do we stand and stare)
Tell me why (why, why do the dolphin cry)
Can some one tell us why we let the ocean die?
(why, why if we’re all the same)
Tell me why (why, why do we pass the blame)
Tell me why (why, why does it never end)
Can some one tell us why we cannot just be friends?

(why, why do we close our eyes?)
(why, why do the greedy lie?)
(why, why do we fight for land?)
(can someone tell us why cos we don’t understand?)
(why, why?)

Playing for Change is a multimedia music project, created by the American producer and sound engineer Mark Johnson with his Timeless Media Group, that seeks to inspire, connect, and bring peace to the world through music. Playing For Change also created a separate non-profit organization called the Playing For Change Foundation, which builds music schools for children around the world.

Playing For Change was born in 2002 as a shared vision between co-founders, Mark Johnson and Whitney Kroenke, to hit the streets of America with a mobile recording studio and cameras in search of inspiration and the heartbeat of the people. Producers Mark Johnson and Enzo Buono, traveled around the world to places including New Orleans, Barcelona, South Africa, India, Nepal, the Middle East and Ireland.

Using mobile recording equipment, the duo recorded local musicians performing the same song, interpreted in their own style. Among the artists participating or openly involved in the project are Vusi Mahlasela, Louis Mhlanga, Clarence Bekker, David Guido Pietroni, Tal Ben Ari (Tula), Bono, Keb’ Mo’, David Broza, Manu Chao, Grandpa Elliott, Keith Richards, Toots Hibbert from Toots & the Maytals, Taj Mahal, Stephen Marley.

This musical journey resulted in the award-winning documentary, “A Cinematic Discovery of Street Musicians.”

Music is one the greatest mechanisms for soothing the soul of a restless man. This life may be confusing at times. We are taught to love by the people who teach us to hate. We are taught to believe in what we are told, except for when we are not supposed to believe in what we are told.

We are shown images that appear real but are really fake, and we are shown media that appears fake but is actually real.

We are told that things are the way they are, and we can’t change them, and at the same time are told if we want things to change all we must do is vote.

Music soothes my soul.

#LoveWins: Historic Victory for Marriage Equality in Ireland

GLOBAL MOMENTUM 

International Progress Toward the Freedom to Marry

“The global momentum for the freedom to marry reflects and reinforces the progress we are making here in the U.S. – and we look now to the Supreme Court to bring our country to national resolution,”

Evan Wolfson said today about historic Ireland marriage vote.

~~GRAPHIC SOURCE~~

RBLineIrelRBLine

Nineteen countries have approved the freedom to marry for same-sex couples nationwide (Netherlands, Belgium, Spain, Canada, South Africa, Norway, Sweden, Portugal, Iceland, Argentina, Denmark, France, Brazil, Uruguay, New Zealand, Britain, Luxembourg, Finland and Ireland), while two others have regional or court-directed provisions enabling same-sex couples to share in the freedom to marry (Mexico and the United States).

In Slovenia, Parliament approved a marriage bill in March 2015 and is headed to the president’s desk. Many other countries provide some protections for such couples. As more and more countries and parts of the United States win the freedom to marry, we see that families are helped, and communities and countries made stronger, by protecting all loving committed couples.

BREAKING: Historic Victory for Marriage Equality in Ireland

#LoveWins

Today, May 23, 2015, the Human Rights Campaign (HRC), the nation’s largest lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) civil rights organization, hailed the historic victory for marriage equality in Ireland.

Ireland is the first country in the world to pass marriage equality through a national referendum, and the 21st country to decide to afford same-sex couples full marriage rights.  

“Voters in Ireland had a rare opportunity to make their country and the world more just and more equal — and that’s just what they did,” said HRC President Chad Griffin.

“As these election results prove, momentum for equality reaches around the globe. HRC is proud to join our partners in Ireland in celebrating this historic victory which guarantees that everyone has the same right to marry the person they love.

Love can’t wait, not in the United States or in Ireland, and it is clear it won’t wait any longer.”

The referendum asked voters to approve language that updates Ireland’s constitution to state, “Marriage may be contracted in accordance with the law by two persons without distinction as to their sex.” Through an unprecedented voter registration campaign and voter mobilization effort by the Irish LGBT community, including the Yes Equality campaign, voters voted overwhelming for equality.

~Published on May 22, 2015~

Voters in the Republic of Ireland are taking part in a referendum on legalizing same-sex marriage on Friday, May 22, 2015.

More than 3.2 million people are being asked whether they want to amend the country’s constitution to allow gay and lesbian couples to marry.

Polling stations opened at 07:00 British Standard Time with voting continuing until 22:00 British Standard Time and counting due to start on Saturday morning.
In 2010, the government enacted civil partnership legislation, which provided legal recognition for gay couples.
