“Thank You” song

gumbo-grayscale pavlet_edited-1

In this scene, Gumbo prances around thanking various animals and insects as they trek through the Everglades. Can you imagine this in your mind as an animation movie and musical?

Ezemdi Chikwendu sang it and Andy Ellis Valdini arranged and performed the instrumentals. Andy also arranged the “Today is a very Special Day” song. Ziv mixed and mastered the demo. I thank all of them for doing such a wonderful job.

I hope you enjoy it and sing along.

“I Need to be Brave” song

ella-final pavlet-1

Here is the lyric video for the 5th song in the script book. Once again, the talented Ziv arranged and performed the instrumentals. Ariel Petrie sang the song as Ellen. She was also in the duet with Ziv, “My Friend For Life.” Thanks to both of you for helping me create this demo!

I NEED TO BE BRAVE by Gail Kowatch

Verse 1

Why did you leave me

Was it your time to

You didn’t say, goodbye

I miss you so much

Wish I could see you

Wish I could hear you, telling me

Chorus

I need to be brave

to face stormy days

I need to be brave

to face all my fears

I need to be brave

I need to be brave

‘Cuz I am never alone

Verse 2

When I dream of you

I can hug you tight

Please visit me, tonight

 Now I can feel you

Like a white angel

Whispering to me, telling me

Chorus

I need to be brave

to face stormy days

I need to be brave

to face all my fears

I need to be brave

I need to be brave

‘Cuz I am never alone

Ohhhhh

I need to be brave

Ohhhhh

I need to be brave

I need to be brave

Chorus

I need to be brave

to face stormy days

I need to be brave

to face all my fears

I need to be brave

I need to be brave

‘Cuz I am never alone

Thank you. With love,

Gail
