ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"An estimated 4,000 Cherokee Indians died in the march known as “The Trail of Tears”. Under orders from President Jackson, the U.S. Army began enforcement of the Indian Removal Act of 1830. Almost all of the 17,000 Cherokees were forced to leave their southeastern homeland during devastating winter conditions." *

The story of "Cherokee Tears":
He walked with the others through the devastating, oppressive winter on the Trail of Tears. He traveled the Kentucky route. The depth of his grief and horror was indescribable. An overwhelming, sickening sorrow.

He settled at the end of The Trail of Tears in Tahlequah, Oklahoma and lived out his life in Oklahoma always longing for his home in the North Georgia Mountains.

Upon his "passing”; his spirit and energy rose from his physical body like ethereal dust and formed into a feather. A light breeze blew from the West and began to carry him Eastward toward Georgia. The wind was steady and it lifted him up to float easily and blissfully on a journey over bridges, rivers and hills back to the leaves of summer in the North Georgia Mountains.

He is at peace now. He is home.

Jobel Star, who himself is a descendant of the Cherokee on his Father's side of the family, delivers a haunting, otherworldly, passionate performance of "Cherokee Tears".

"Although this song references man's past injustices to one another; Cherokee Tears is a song of peace as it rises to a new level of love and freedom for all....which I call HOME." JOBEL STAR”

Cherokee Tears

There’s a bridge out in the distance
And it seems so far away
And the angel on my shoulder
Promised me a brighter day

Many years out in the desert
Many tears have come and gone
Rivers flow down to the ocean
I will find my way back home

Oh, How the wind will carry me like a feather floats so easily
Over bridges on this journey to the leaves of summer of my home

I will make this final journey
To my sacred resting place
Where the past no longer haunts me
In a world not judged by race

I’ll be free to fly to Georgia
I’ll be free from all these chains
In my dream I longed for freedom
And that dream will live today
(chant: Auschwitz, Slave ships, Cherokee, Wounded knee)

Oh, How the wind will carry me like a feather floats so easily
Over bridges on this journey to the leaves of summer of my home

If this beauty has such sadness
How can beauty still remain
Cherokee is in my spirit
And the blood runs through my veins
