“Forever” Inspiration:
My dad, Rajan Sambanthan, was one of the most inspirational people in my life. I loved that he was always happy and had such a positive attitude towards everyone. In February 2009, my dad was diagnosed with a rare disease called Frontal Temporal Dementia, which unfortunately doesn’t have a cure. He passed away on February 1st, 2013, at the age of 50. My dad always supported me in my music and always listened to me, so I wrote the song “Forever” for him. I want to remember all of the good memories that we shared and I hope that people can learn from all of the good things that he did.

“Hard Times”/"In Loving Memory” Inspiration:
Dedicated to the memory and spirit of the families that lost loved ones in the events that took place at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut. We share this song and poem as inspiration to continue your loved one’s dreams and constantly remind ourselves that together we can become whole again.

A special thanks to Karen Tole-Henderson, Darcy Cormack and Darren Baker for their support with this project.

Recorded at Island Lakes Community School in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada on Saturday, March 16, 2013.
