Last November, a remarkable group of people came together in a Southern California recording studio to raise their voices as a choir. Together with singer/songwriter Eric Lowen (co-writer of Pat Benatar's 1984 smash hit "We Belong"), each member of the gathering has been profoundly effected by ALS--a progressive, neurodegenerative illness for which there is no known cure. This is a chronicle of their day.

    This is very nice. However, one should note that there are 2 types of ALS. My beloved sister who died in October of 2011, had the kind that first takes away your ability to speak and swallow. She was walking fine until the day she died. She had the cruelest form of ALS, and she was a beautiful singer, fantastic cook. I am sure she would have rather had her voice and ability to eat, instead of being able to walk.

    I'm sitting here rubbing the scabs on my forearms. fell out of my wheel chair again. this song verbalizes the gratitude i feel for the wonderful life of music I've lived. and the music that is still in my life. may not be on a stage, but that was never what it was really about. it's about freeing the soul. and learning to roll - learning to fall after all. Peace, what a pleasure.

    So many Can'ts in the world, so many Won'ts...and then you have the courageous ones, the ones who say Why Not? Who teach all the rest of us what strength is really all about...how beautiful that character trait truly is in everyone of you. Wow indeed. Thanks, take care-

    I loved the music by Lowen and Navarro and always wondered what happened to them. A friend sent me this link since my husband was just diagnosed with ALS. We'll fight on together - and your Broken Moon album will mean even more to me than it already did.
