ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
“Music is a spirit that cradles and heals us, unifies and illuminates us, consoles us in deep sadness and harmonizes our lives. If we want peace on this earth, we might put aside one week, seven days for the celebration of the arts, so that our children may grow to respect and enjoy God’s greatest gift to humanity.”
- Njacko Backo

Open your heart to life. Life will give you the opportunity that belongs to you.

3. Who Knows Tomorrow
Never laugh at the misery of others. Who knows what will happen tomorrow.

No matter what they say or do to you, don't cry. Your soul belongs to God.
