Written and produced by Nimo Patel and Daniel Nahmod.

Musicians Nimo Patel and Daniel Nahmod brought together dozens of people from around the world to create this beautiful, heart-opening melody. Inspired by the 21-Day Gratitude Challenge, the song is a celebration of our spirit and all that is a blessing in life. For the 21 Days, over 11,000 participants from 118 countries learned that “gratefulness” is a habit cultivated consciously and a muscle built over time. As a famous Roman, Cicero, once said, “Gratitude is not only the greatest of virtues, but the parent of all others.” This soul-stirring music video, created within a week by a team of volunteers, shines the light on all the small things that make up the beautiful fabric of our lives.

    Truly the key to happiness and inner peace the gratitude that one is present within their heart.

  • Gary Baldwin

    There is so much we should be grateful for that allows us to feel and have meaningfulness in our daily living that doesn't need the gadgets and trinkets of contrived consumerism. Thankyou for this song that reverberates with the spirit of gratefulness!

  • Mark

    I often think of the Internet as just a continuous loop of National Enquirer-like headlines and negativity. This video made me weep and filled my heart and body and mind with the most warm sensation that a computer has ever produced. It is an antidote to the miasma that has filled the "airwaves" this last year of the you-know-who. The name that needs no naming. Love to all. Thank you. Peace

  • Judy

    Wonderful way to start my day. Inspires me to be more grateful for all the people, animals, and experiences in my life.

  • Claudette

    I am grateful all the opportunities I have had and to the people that have made them possible.


    This is great, how ever there is no mention of God from whom all these blessings come. Is God no longer cool , or “PC”? What if someone wanted to thank you for your goodness, but only mentioned your works and not your name? This message needs a Target, and that’s The Father and The Son... they are worthy of this wonderful recognition!😀
