When the Water Rises
100 percent of net proceeds from the download of this song go to Recovery Houston. I grew up in Houston and most of my family and many dear friends are there. During the time that Hurricane Harvey was stalled along the Texas coast and pounding away at Houston and surrounding areas with days of constant deluge on top of record flooding already in progress, high winds and tornado warnings all day long, I was worried sick and felt so very helpless. I decided to put all that worry energy into a song of hope and a celebration of the Human Spirit. I tried to put myself in the place of a person dealing with flooding to my roof and what would be going through my mind. The verses became the part of me that was in fear and the choruses became the part of me that was in hope. I told a friend about the song and she suggested I make downloads available and give the proceeds to relief efforts. I am so happy she did!
