The Stay Strong Project was born as a response to the devastating oil spill in the Gulf Coast.

Boulder, CO (PRWEB) November 20, 2012

The Stay Strong Project has just launched its second release, entitled "You Can Count On Me/Shyam Bolo" -- a song celebrating the power of friendship and community, a common theme at the heart of THE STAY STRONG PROJECT.

In mid-September 2012, a group of dedicated chant artists and musicians, including David Newman and Mira, Donna De Lory, C.C. White, Shyam Das, The Kirtaniyas, and more, gathered at the legendary Village Recorder studios in Los Angeles. In a charged and inspired creative atmosphere, a beautiful recording and video were made with the intention to uplift others and to raise funds for Global Green's environmental and humanitarian efforts.

The song, video and website are being released on November 15th, just before Thanksgiving, in celebration of gratitude and the power of friendship. 100% of proceeds from the song, (released digitally on iTunes, Amazon and other internet music sites), will contribute to Global Green's Green School Building program, a vital endeavor supporting children, by example, to shepherd a sustainable future. http://globalgreen.org/greenschools

The Stay Strong Project was born as a response to the devastating oil spill in the Gulf Coast in 2010. In early 2011, The Stay Song Project released the song “Stay Strong,” as a recording and video featuring many chant and yoga luminaries in the style of the classic song “We are the World” released in 1985 by supergroup USA for Africa. "Stay Strong" was produced in partnership with Global Green USA and offered 100% of proceeds to support the Gulf oil spill clean-up. The release was a great success worldwide, reaching the top five on the iTunes world music charts while raising funds, awareness, and opening many hearts!

David Newman (Durga Das) December Tour Dates

Philadelphia-based David Newman is both a long-established, highly respected yoga teacher and advocate and a beloved kirtan singer and yoga music favorite. He closes a packed 2012 tour schedule with a full raft of dates, bringing his uplifting performance and healing presence to east coast audiences in six states.

His most recent album, STARS, was released on the White Swan label on March 20, 2012. As part of the record's launch, Newman and White Swan shot a video of the album's single, "Love Belongs to Everyone," and arranged that Peter Gabriel’s human rights organization, WITNESS.org, would benefit from sales of the song. Newman will be performing repertoire from STARS on his forthcoming tour.
