About "Keep Shining"

Before the closing of my live show in December 2018, performers came together as a group and sang a new song I wrote for the event-Keep Shining-an expressive anthem inspired by artists' stories, intended for those who may want to give up. While I voiced my inner fears, doubts, questions and insecurities, our live performers kept repeating the chorus to "Keep Shining" as a powerful, uplifting counterpoint. I collaborated with our ‘lights in the darkness’ community, where more than 20 artists contributed their voices. The video is inspired by my story and transformations struggling with rare chronic illness.

Gratitude to These Lights in the Darkness Artists!

    I love the community feel of it. All the many voices and the creative ways you mixed them. A beautiful facet of the Light in the Darkeness project.

    How exciting to hear the completed song. So happy I could be a part of it. Thank you for involving us in your creativity! I keep catching myself singing the chorus throughout the day. 😉

    Speaking of “drowning” …… this is strangely serendipitous with the flooding in my town! Quite a watery feel to this track, very effective. Lisa, I especially liked how your voice was slowly soothed into silence by the gentle but persistent reminder of the chorus! So glad to be a part of this! Many thanks and may this work reach all who need it.
