If there is righteousness in the heart, there will be beauty in the character.  If there is beauty in the character, there will be harmony in the home.  If there is harmony in the home, there will be order in the nation.  If there is order in the nation, there will be peace on earth.

Amanda Olsavsky

I don’t know where that quote came from but I LOVE IT!!!  My darling daughter Amanda Joy has been privileged to be a part of a special project called, Songs for Our Soldiers.  She is a jazz vocalist who has a band, Never In Denver.  She worked with some great grammy-winning artists on this project.  Her particular solos include “Tender Mercy” and “Castles and Kings”  She also sings a duet with Ben Carroll on “A Soldier’s Wife.” 

The following is the written text from the project’s website ——

Multiple Grammy winners Jon Carroll, Cathy Fink and Jim Robeson have joined forces with Baltimore singing sensation, Amanda Olsavsky, and New York recording artist, Ben Carroll, in a musical tribute to our fighting troops and those who wait for them

In an eclectic song collection inspired by small town newspaper accounts of the triumphs and struggles of our troops and their families, these veteran performers lend their voices and instrumental talents to deeply textured music of valor, love, patriotism, loneliness and pride. Through a richly produced mix of electric country rock, pop ballads and love songs, feel-good peace anthems and stirring folk songs composed by Brenda Elthon, we are taken inside the war, as it is lived, day by day, by our soldiers and their loved ones.

While avoiding an overt political statement about the war, “Songs For Our Soldiers” asks us to reflect upon the personal costs paid by those who heed our Nation’s call for service.  — The My Space Page…
