Dear Friends, Fans & Family...
In honor of Martin Luther King Day, we invite you to listen to our song, “I Believe This Belongs to You,” which we wrote in the summer of 2009 with our dear friend, Ester Nicholson.
To get the songwriting process started that day, she told us a story she had heard about Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. during the Civil Rights Era. Ester had no idea if it was true or just an urban legend, but it resonated profoundly with all of us. As the music and lyrics began to unfold, we each found ourselves in the middle of our own personal histories. This was Big Stuff. We felt individually the ways we had played all the parts in this familiar human drama. It was sticky and uncomfortable. And by the time we rode the song out to the end, it was also immensely liberating.
This is a song about forgiveness, generosity of the heart, and grace. It's about what happens when we're so tuned into who we really are, that we can take responsibility for our own lives, and allow others the freedom to do the same.
We hope that this song, and the energy that brought it into being, will continue to go out into the world and wake us each up to love, compassion, and aligned action in the best possible way.
Blessings and love to you all,
Jan & JD
