"VOICE" - a song for charity.
It all started from a very strong earthquake and huge tsunami hit northern part of Japan on March 11th at 2:46 pm 2011. After this tragic event, so many prayers and heartfelt comments have been posted on many Facebook Pages from people all over the world. But unfortunately, these comments probably didn't reach the people who really deserve it due to harsh environment they were in.
So I have came up with the idea to collect those "voices" from around the world and put them together as a song. I've imagined of huge chorus you hear at rock concerts. And it took me more than two and a half years to finish everything.
Well the result is ....... much greater than I expected.
My friends, along with people I have known through Facebook and You Tube sent me the files of their performances on line. Some of them performed in front of their camera using Skype. I haven't even met some of the members.
I believe this is something no one has ever done before. A song born from SNS (social networking service)
It also is a supporter's song for the victims of natural disaster happening all over the world.
I would like to thank all the members who performed in this song for throwing away all their rights to be paid for their appearance. I really appreciate it.
The profit I get from this song will be donated to the Japanese Red Cross.
Music Video is now available on iTunes.
