This wonderful new pop ballad by Mark Hayes is inspiring on every level. Musically it is reminiscent of a sumptuous Broadway musical ballad, with a dramatic introduction, intimate first verse, soaring chorus, and blockbuster ending. This is a melody that is truly memorable and beautiful. The first verse can be sung by a soloist or unison women. The lyrics were written from the perspective of a child, dreaming of a world where “all is right” and of a world that is “a place of harmony, where love abounds, and hope is found, and music rings the whole world round.” This song is a call to unity and brotherhood and tolerance for all. It is suitable for any high school, college, or community chorus, and could be used by church choirs as well. It would make a perfect closer to a concert and would work for graduation or baccalaureate services. A full orchestration or breathtaking accompaniment track are available.
Acc. CD and Instrumentation are available only through J. W. Pepper or Mark Hayes Productions.
