We are so excited to debut our first song, “Gift of Tears.” Written (lyrics by Angela Lensch) and produced (music and production by Tony Bessen, vocals by Bobbie Blackburn) during the winter of 2018/19. The song celebrates the healing power of tears/crying and the importance of holding sacred space for oneself and another when the gift appears.
In the winter/spring of 2020, Angela created a mosaic violin, inspired by our new song, for Midsummer’s Music Fundraiser for their 30th anniversary. Please enjoy the video Tony created to feature our song and the new mosaic violin.
