about

An empowering global anthem to inspire unity, oneness and hope.
Featuring 88 participants from 25 countries and territories, ’One Tree’ is another ‘World Collaboration’, created at a time when most friends around the world were confined to their home due to the global pandemic. Yet despite our physical separation, the hearts desire to unite, to come together in harmony, to work together, is clear. 

My endless gratitude to all the friends around the world who made this project possible.

lyrics

"Gather all people beneath the shadow of Thy bounty and cause them to unite in harmony, so that they may become as the rays of one sun, as the waves of one ocean, and as the fruit of one tree."
