Story behind the song
I was working on a project with Jonbudz on Friday the 11th when suddenly I started seeing all kinds of tweets appearing about an earthquake near Japan. My heart just dropped to the floor! My uncle and his family lives in Japan and a good friend of mine is currently visiting there. I was so thankful to find that they are OK. I can only imagine how shaken everyone is, no pun intended, due to this act of nature. In an effort to comfort not only those I knew, but everyone else there, I was immensely inclined to pay tribute to Japan as immediate as I could; and that's when the production of this video was set in motion. I told Jonbudz that I couldn't do anything else until I am able to pick back up my fallen heart. Being a great friend to me, he inspired me to complete this video--so I want to thank Jonbudz for helping me coordinate everything. Also, I want to thank everyone for diligently participating in this tribute video especially Lianah for providing the opening speech and her vocals for "Note to God." The song made the video become quite touching and meaningful just as I had wished for. You are truly awesome, Lianah! Because of the intense love I felt in this video coming from everyone involved including the viewers as well, not only have I been able to pick up my heart, but now I am more than ever inspired to put it entirely into everything I do for the world. Love you all, Xay.
