Music Monday remembers Ben E. King

Ben E. King passed away last week, but as with all great musicians, his music lives on. For this, I’m extremely grateful.

This song never gets old for me. 

Wishing you a great week ahead,

“When the night has come
And the land is dark
And the moon is the only light we’ll see
No I won’t be afraid
Oh, I won’t be afraid
Just as long as you stand, stand by me

So darling, darling
Stand by me, oh stand by me
Oh stand, stand by me
Stand by me

If the sky that we look upon
Should tumble and fall
All the mountains should crumble to the sea
I won’t cry, I won’t cry
No, I won’t shed a tear
Just as long as you stand, stand by me …”

Last Musical Mondays for #IndiesUnite4Joshua ~ Stand by Me

UPDATE ~ ONLY hours left to donate at IndieGoGo
Please keep sharing Indies Unite for Joshua
Every amount counts ~ GREAT perks still available!

* * *

This is the last Monday leading up to the final days of Indies Unite for Joshua. We are SO CLOSE to our $10K goal at $9830.

“Stand by Me” is orchestrated by Playing for Change, an excellent foundation that uses multimedia to bring together musicians from around the world. It’s an emotional, beautiful, and inspiring video.

In the blog post by Max that precipitated this fundraiser, he asked his friends to stand by him. I can’t think of a better song that exemplifies the spirit of the amazing people who’ve stood by Joshua, Max, and their family for the past four months.

THANK YOU ALL for uniting to raise funds for Joshua’s medical treatment and give him a chance at life. It’s been wondrous to share this journey with each and every one of you.

You can continue to donate to Indies Unite for Joshua until May 30th, 11:59 PST.

Let’s blow the 10K goal and get as much as we can in these last 3 days!  

With respect and gratitude,

Musical Mondays – John Lennon

When I think about musical artists who instill compassion, his name rises to the top. I wrote about John Lennon on the 30 year anniversary of his death back in December.

“Stand by Me” is a song with a compassionate message, and though I like the Ben E. King version, I really love this one.
