Some amazing kids performed a song I wrote for International Day of Peace 2014 at the Self-Realization Fellowship Hollywood Temple in front of a lovely audience. An incredible thanks to the amazing participation of everyone involved! And special thanks to Gunjan Virk for creating this super sweet little video for the song.
In exactly one month I will be sharing the stage with a whole bunch of incredible artists!! :) It's a real dream come true to work with everyone, and it's so wonderful we're all coming together in support of peace around the world. Sept. 21st is recognized by the U.N. as the International Day of Peace. Vibrations of love and harmony will surely be at a beautiful high everywhere. And I am thrilled to be performing some of my own new songs as part of the celebration.
Please come out and enjoy this special musical evening with us.

Lines of velvet ropes marking the Lines of red carpet Which is laid out for the line to get in at the door. That is if you're name is lined on the list If you're lucky or pretty or rich or pop-ular.
You make it inside and get in line for a drink, In line for the bathroom, in line for the sink. The girls tell drooling boys to "get in line, I'm taken tonight". Guys keep girls on the line while they look for another whomever's in sight They're all in lines doing lines on their mirrors on the marble until all their words are garbled to forget or pass the time.
All the while they starve Starve for truth Starve for food Starve for strength to change their own day
What a scene of the show The life game that we play There's beauty in its madness There's joy deep in this sadness Change always comes The waves always rise The sea bubbles melt and easily subside The sun always sets The mountains fall and climb No matter whatever we see with our eyes The Light of the soul never dies.
How funny I feel as I gaze through the lasers, the screaming, the bass, the dancers; the maze getting thicker. Cause only a week before The very same cement now cloaked in red carpet, lined with velvet and gold, guarded by muscle, and harboring dope Was treaded upon by my own sneakered feet On my way to the store for a vegetable treat. It was just another day The same as before Until the night I couldn't pass through And they all lined up at the door.
Our Millenium is a full on teenager now! 21st century has just turned a scary 14 years old. Humanity is heading into freshman year of high school and we are all excited and nervous and awkward and freshly confident. But with this combination of chaos in our evolution comes a joyous new sense of freedom. New chances, new opportunitites, new experiences, new challenges, and so so much we get to learn, create, and be.
