HI All , The message below is from our friend Ann Hampton Callaway. She is the beloved wonderful artist and lyricist, whom we are so grateful for her wonderful lyrics to our song Heartstrings which became I've Dreamed of You" sung by Barbra Streissand for her wedding and our song "Greenwaves " which we released on our "Once In A Red Moon CD" . Check out below. X
Dear Friends, Hope this finds you well. We are certainly living in “interesting times.” So, as you may know, in response to the craziness of our world right now I am making a music video of my peace anthem “At the Same Time.” I’m reaching out to you because I think you might enjoy sharing images from your life that speak to the lyrics in my song. Yesterday, BroadwayWorld.com posted a great article about the video: www.broadwayworld.com/article/Ann-Hampton-Callaway-Seeks-Entries-from-Across-the-Globe-for-At-The.... If you already know about this project, it’s important to know that there’s been an extension! Let me know if you have time to register by June 21 for the video contest which has prizes up to $2000. The easiest option is submitting photographs from your life and previous travels. “At-the-same-time” filming and photos happen on June 24th 1 PM GMT (9 am EST). If you are a master videographer, you have the option of doing the entire video with images from June 24th and any time you have filmed. And you can submit in all categories if you are so inspired. The world is your oyster! Also, if you have friends from other countries who take inspiring photographs or video, please share this invitation with them. We have twenty countries represented and want an even broader range to have the full impact of a global anthem. And you might think of getting children and students involved, too!
I am hoping for images of faces and scenes of people of all ages and races and religions and walks of life. If you have any pictures of babies just born, that would be wonderful. Stunning sunrises and panoramas of cities and nature could work well as well as hearts in nature. Anything that shows the power of humanity, what we all have in common and the many facets of this gorgeous, crazy world we live in. The intro could be a montage of faces from around the world or places from around the world or sunrises/sunsets from around the world. Thanks so much for dreaming with me and I know together we can make a gorgeous impact with the “stories of our lives!” To register and get all the info, here’s the link: hyperurl.co/41cizo. Love, Ann P.S. I’ve highlighted my lyric to spark ideas of things to shoot or something from your collection of work. And here’s the MP3:
AT THE SAME TIME
Words and Music by Ann Hampton Callaway
Think of all the hearts Beating in the world At the same time Think of all the faces Telling stories of our lives At the same time
Think of all the eyes Looking out into this world Trying to make some sense of what we see Think of all the ways we have of seeing Think of all the ways there are of being
Think of all the children Born into this world At the same time Feel your love surround them Through the years they need to grow At the same time Think of all the hands That will be reaching for a dream And think of all the dreams That could come true If the hands we’re reaching with Could come together joining me and you
But when it comes to thinking of tomorrow We must protect our fragile destiny In this precious life there is no time to borrow The time has come to be a family
Think of all the love That is pouring from our hearts At the same time Think of all the light Our love can shine around this world At the same time Think what we’ve been given
And then think what we could lose All of life is in our trembling hands It’s time to overcome our fears And join to build a world That loves and understands It helps to think of all the hearts Beating in the world And hope for all the hearts Beating in the world There’s a healing music in our hearts Beating in the world At the same time At the same time ...
