From the recording The World We Want
"The World We Want" is a catchy tune written in the voice of a child longing to live in a world free from hate. I initially wrote this song with my then 7 yr old student, Kaile, who has a heart of gold. Kaile likes to take on projects that help the poor and encourage environmental responsibility.
As I taught the song to Kaile, she began to add some lyrics of her own, truly making it a song written in the voice of a child. Now, 4 years later, and on the heels of the mounting problem of climate change and social unrest, Kaile and I decided it was time to officially release the song- with some updates. Kaile thought it would be a great idea to add a rap to the song and I agreed. We hope the lyrics will inspire kids and adults to take action to make the world a better place for all of us - especially the very young and vulnerable.
