Share Article

Sarah Bella’s original song, ‘In My Soul’ will be featured in The Sunshine Workshop’s Musical Theatre Production of “The Thanksgiving Coat,” based upon a children’s book of the same name, written by Elizabeth A. Hoadley, illustrated by 5-Year old Kailee, and corresponding video and television animation directed by Academy Award Winner, Anthony LaMolinara.

The Sunshine Workshop Musicals are Musical Quilts, sewn with different visions and voices from all across the world.

Sarah Bella is a singer-songwriter from Michigan with a rapidly growing YouTube fan base. Sarah’s songwriting caught the attention of the film industry and she recently wrote the theme song for the film "Rancho D’ Amour." Sarah Bella was named the winner of “Detroit’s Got Talent” and has started recording her EP in Nashville, Tennessee.

“Sarah Bella’s song captured my attention for several reasons,” said Elizabeth A. Hoadley, CEO, The Sunshine Workshop. “Not only is Sarah a unique songwriter with a beautiful voice, her song, ‘In My Soul,’ captures the essence of the love that little Sweet Zara feels when she wears her Thanksgiving Coat. The tattered, but much loved coat, was mysteriously left on her doorknob when she was at the lowest point in her life and needing a friend.”

“My only proof is the warmth I feel in the cold,” sings Sarah Bella in her song, “the arms around me when I’m alone. My only proof is the fact that somehow I know and I can’t show you where cuz it's in my soul.”

The Sunshine Workshop Musicals are Musical Quilts, sewn with different visions and voices from all across the world. ‘The Thanksgiving Coat’ Musical has original songs from artists in Europe, Canada, and from coast to coast in the United States, written by both male and female, young and not-so-young, and different races and religions.

“I am excited to have Sarah Bella participate,” said Hoadley. “To see her song performed as part of ‘The Thanksgiving Coat’ Musical with The Sunshine Workshop will be fantastic, it will offer her music another venue, one which will be enjoyed by all ages.”
