We like to begin every class with a moment of gratitude.
We also like to begin with a song.
This tune allows for both.
It's been sung by children around the world - you'll hear 'em.
This is a great song to have ready on your playlist at a moment's notice.
Having a happy tune with children singing in your pocket is always a good idea.
We're thankful being thankful feels so good.
Love songs for Project Creo
Every song Purchased goes to support Project Creo!
Children inspired us from around the world.
We had some stories to share. We had some songs to sing.
And we were given time in a recording studio
to bring these songs from the children to you.
This song tells the story of two children whose lives were changed through the arts. The song is based in true stories we lived, and we believe they represent the beautiful love stories happening all over the world. All of these stories are singing the same song:
It's all about love, and love is all about.
This particiular recording features some superheroes from a classroom in Pune, India.
Priyanka, 14-year-old girl from India, shared her poem entitled, "Fly" with us, and we made it into a song while riding the bus in Mumbai.
She continues to inspire us as she makes a posiitve impact on her world. We asked her to share what she'd like to inspire through the song. She had this to say:
"Originally, I remember writing it after looking at some of the young girls in my community not being able to do what they liked as they were caught up with household chores for the whole day. However, now that I look back upon it, it reminds me of the cage that we sometimes put ourselves in, limiting ourselves. With this we grow weaker and weaker thinking that the whole world is against us, when all we need to do is free ourselves from the cage.
Reminding ourselves to fly and get rid of the cage, is something that I wanted the poem to convey."
Kermit the Frog (and his friend, Jim Hensen) shared this song with us.
Our friend Chris shared this song with the children we taught through Project Creo.
The message it has for the child within all of us is quite wonderful.
So, we thought we'd share it again with you.
Our sound engineer, Jordan was inspired by all the love and creativity as we told stories about the children and discussed the 'spectrum of love.'
Jordan then created this colorful song.
We listened. We were moved. And we joined in.
We invite you to do the same.
If you shine light through a prism, you can see the colors of a rainbow. There are different colors, yet all of them white light. If you look for love around the world, you can also see a lot of colors. There are different ways to practice love, yet all of them powerful tools to create positive change.
We like to think of the spectrum of light (Red - Orange - Yellow - Green - Blue - Indigo - Violet)
as The Spectrum of Love (Presence - Play - Courage - Compassion - Gratitude - Hope - Unity)
We discovered some fun ways to experience the colors of the rainbow in the studio.
The playful child in each of us found the journey to be quite epic.
We're not exactly sure how to describe this music - but we like to think that, somewhere in the 12 minute experience, exists an epic story of how love can change the world.
And thats' a story we want to share with everyone.
