I hope this video and beautiful song, Sing Gently, inspires you as it has inspired me.

Not to be discouraged by the pandemic, Eric Whitacre managed to gather together 17,572 from 129 countries on line to sing this gorgeous song.

What an excellent example of creativity, persistence and courage.

      Thanks, Kate. I’ll check it out. I saw him interviewed on Sixty Minutes and I can’t imagine–having once been a choir director–how hard this must have been.

    It was so beautiful. If the world could only sing gently as one, so much could be accomplished. We all need gentleness right now. The song gives peace. Thank you for sharing.
