From the recording Oaths of Abundance

When I was a kid, one of my favorite songs and albums was "I'd Like to Teach the World to Sing." I liked how the cover of the album displayed cartoon images of people from all around the world wearing a different style of dress based on their culture. I wrote Multicultural World in the same spirit of unity. A spirit of unity and respect for different cultures and backgrounds is what the world needs right now. The song features ethnic instruments and percussion from around the world.

The Asian sky rises high into the Kenyan night
They're shining down upon the land of every man
Tibetan winds are reaching in to jumpstart your enlightenment

Norwegian winds celebrate the end or our bereavement
Now I see a multicultural world

(In a) It's a multicultural world
Come with me and feel the breeze
Of a multicultural world
So peaceful and forgiving, we're living
In a multicultural world

And your beliefs don't torture me
Or keep me any less free
With equal rights, we share the night And discard all the judging
As we see a multicultural world


Donning the dawn of inclusivity
We'll soldier on but no guns will be carried


END: The world, the world, the world, the world, the world, the world
