Cross Your Heart and Pray for Hope – Video

Posted on July 16th, 2010

I recently wrote a little tune in response to the Gulf oil spill and posted it here. I was quite surprised when it received over 1500 downloads in a matter of a few days. Many people sent me kind words through emails and comments on the web page. I was honestly surprised and humbled by the response.

I then sent out a request for photos so I could create a slide show of people enjoying the beaches around here, and WOW I received a big response! Thank you to everyone who sent in these great pictures! Unfortunately, I was not able to include some photos because of low resolution and for that I am sorry. I hope you enjoy the slide show.

If you would like to download the audio file or read about how this tune was created then you may visit my first post about “Cross Your Heart and Pray for Hope.”

Thank you for your support and kind words, and a special thank you to my band mates in Mithril for quickly coming into the studio to record this for me.
