Peace & blessings everyone,
First of all, I’d like to wish you all a very blessed and happy Ramadan. Secondly, I’d like to take this opportunity to talk a little about our latest music video and upcoming album, “Wherever You Are”.
Back in 2006, while in Jeddah (KSA) for a concert, I had the pleasure of meeting Dr. Walid Fitaihi, CEO of the IMC (International Medical Centre).
The meeting went really well. But, it wasn’t until we visited the IMC again earlier this year (2010) till I realized the true beauty and significance of what we were about to embark upon. Dr. Walid gave another one of his powerful speeches but this time with a slight ‘angle’ that pulled me in so hard that it was almost impossible to ‘get out’. He spoke about IMC’s Corporate Social Responsibility programme and how he wanted ‘to give back to society’ and therefore the idea to make a brand new music video and song which would reflect that. The project was so admirable, that we decided to make it available for free download ☺ This initiative is something I am very proud to be part of and once you see/hear the Music video, you will know why. The concept of “Heal and you will be Healed” not only moved and pulled me into the project, but totally fascinated me as well. The idea that healing doesn’t necessarily take place in the hospital and through conventional/traditional methods, but rather, “a smile can change a life”; the smallest acts of kindness can be ‘healing’. This is a great initiative and I’m honoured to have been part of it… I composed the melody and lyrics within days of getting back home, and the video has turned out to be utterly smashing ☺ Kudos, the Mr. Jacob Kusk and his great team…
I hope you accept this ‘gift’ and I hope it helps, albeit in some small way, in showing that every single one of us can be a healer.
“Wherever You Are” will be out very soon! We’re working on making it extra special for you all, so I sincerely ask you all to bear patiently with us as you have continued to do so throughout these years. More surprises coming your way
God bless you all.
