Back in 2006, Tom Smith wrote and recorded this gospel numberwhich, among other things,
sends a message to both the religious and the non-religious
people of the world that they all have the power within them to
live in peace with each other on this planet we share, despite
our differing views on just how this world works. With how the
past year has been going, I can't help but feel it speak to me
lately, and wanted to share it with the world in my own way.
With Tom's permission, I whipped up a cover of
this song, and performed it live to kick off Closing Ceremonies
at FuMPFeST 2016 in Chicago. On stage with me as my tambourine
tapping gospel choir were Tony
Goldmark, Devo Spice, Carrie Dahlby, members of Court & Country,
and the man himself, Tom Smith.
I hope you all enjoy it, and more importantly, I wish you all
love, peace, and prosperity.
