How Good It Is to Be Together
About a month ago, when the world -- and life as we know it -- was called on to hit pause, when every single music performance got canceled, when we were forced to shelter in place, forced to look inside ourselves and find something to hold on to, I posted “When we’re out of our comfort zone and in a place of vulnerability, we create, evolve and grow. I wonder what we’re going to create next... stay positive”
I realized that even with social distance, we’re not alone; we’re all in this together. Together we’re stronger, and when we feel ourselves strong, that’s when we begin to believe we can shine a light in the dark. I composed this song, “Hinei Mah Tov,” and asked many musician friends to be part of it.
My endless gratitude to all who contributed to make this song possible. Lisa Peicott, Jacqueline Rafii, Marcus Feldman, Chloe Pourmorady, German Kalinscky, Lilly Aycud, Brock Pollock, MB Gordy, Daniel Feldman, Yoni Arbel, Janice Mautner Markham, Gustavo Bulgach, Zack Lodmer & Theo Seidmon & Gustavo Borner for mastering this track.
This has been my light, the anthem urging me to keep going every day, to contribute something that I felt was needed. I hope that during these difficult times, this song will bring some light to your life and inspire collaboration, creativity and love.
In Hebrew, “Hinei Mah Tov” translates to “Behold how good it is for people to dwell together in unity.” If this message resonates with you, and if you feel this song would make a positive impact on your friends and loved ones, I humbly ask you to share and spread the word. Thank you.
