DEBWEWIN album project, 2022

"... a Motown-inspired song of love, diversity, inclusion, thanksgiving, courage, and renewal."

Wena boozhoo! Kenny ndizhnikaaz, Tkaronto ndoonzhaabaa.
So thankful for the gift of life, music and good vibes. Grateful to everyone who supported the production of the song and video, to you the listeners, and to earthlings who love, living simply, caring for the earth and each other. Thanks to my family, and extended families and friends for guidance, and to audiences and communities for growing strong together.

Nia:wen ieti nistaha tsi iowentsiate! Thanks Earth!


Let's Turn The World Around

I like the way you walk
And I like the way you talk
The way you make my dreams come true

I like the way you sing
Come on now do your thing
Say it to me that you love me to

I want to get along
Let's spend the day again
Into the stars we'll go and we'll shine

Do you remember us in the clear blue waters
off the shores of Lake Huron last summer,
wasn't that such fun?

Running for cover under a great oak tree,
the thunder drumming into us sugar,
then you held me tight baby

Let's turn the world around
and let's help it live again
all we need is precious time to share some good will

When we're walkin' on the beach,
We'll talk about dreams to keep
Then we'll ride the rock and rolling tides
rushin' in.
