Singing a Surprise!
I am so excited I can barely contain it. Two years ago, during the very beginning of the Syrian uprising, I wrote a song. I communicated with some very talented Syrian artists who discussed the idea of producing it themselves for months with me. Then the issue slept, and slept, and slept. I was crushed. I contacted another Muslim artist who entertained the thought and then simply replied that it would not fit the "theme" of his new album (words cannot express how much respect I lost for him after that). I felt hopeless.
Until finally, I woke up one day and just kind of decided to produce it myself. I connected with a SUPER talented Nashville singer and producer, and today I got my first recorded draft back from him and it sounds AWESOME! I got the chills just hearing someone else sing the lyrics I wrote with such heartfelt empathy. I couldn't be happier right now.
So stay tuned! God-willing, I will either upload it to YouTube or Vimeo once it is produced and I hope you will listen to it, dear reader, and love it!
