Tell us about your music:
I write and record music with the hope of engaging, entertaining and educating kids and families. Although most of my songs are original compositions, I enjoy adding my own spin to traditional folk and classic reggae songs like this one from Bob Marley. I am happiest when I look out into the crowd and see families singing, dancing and playing together to the sounds of my music.
About your song:
One Love is perhaps one of the most popular reggae songs of all time. In this classic Bob Marley tune we sing One Love, One Heart/ Let's get together and feel all right. One World Chorus recorded the track as a collaborative effort among kids in the USA, Kenya, and Jamaica. More than 300 children sang on this special project. It's a true celebration of children and childhood everywhere. Marley's message of peace and unity shines through the collective voices of One World Chorus. We'll be releasing a new album of Marley's songs in spring 2015.
What you hope children & families will get from this song:
It is my hope that all who hear our arrangement of One Love will enjoy the interpretation of this Bob Marley classic. I would love for the listener to be moved to action whether it's singing or dancing along, or trying to be a little kinder to their neighbors.
