Hello Kickstarters!

I'm incredibly jazzed to be posting my first project here. My goal is to cover studio production time and CD pressing of my single "Not a One of Us", an Autism anthem. Another goal I have is to crowd-source the music video footage by inviting as many people as possible to record themselves singing "Not a One of Us" or a part of the song and uploading it onto YouTube to be part of the music video.

I've performed the song live several times and I would really like to make it available to as many people as possible. I think the message of inclusion is so important for everyone to hear and music is the best way I know to share it.

I will be posting images of my son's past artwork that is being offered for different rewards shortly [they are now posted on the "updates" tab].

Please join me in my goals, and pass this project on... everyone's included.

With joy,
NEDI

Song Lyrics

There’s not a one of us who doesn’t need to contribute
There’s not a one of us who doesn't need to share
There’s not a he or a she, a you or me
Not longing to cry out “I’m here, I’m here”

There’s not a one of us that doesn't feel uncertain
And every one of us still needs to be assured-
We have a gift to give, the life we live
Is growing in strength ever more, and more

Living in the heart of everyone on earth
Is a little bit of heaven above
If what you’re seeing isn't whole,
you’re not seeing the soul ~
We’re all made in one image of undying love

There’s not one of us that couldn't learn acceptance
We’re here together for so very short a time
Sharing one home - the earth, allow the worth
Of every person to shine, let it shine
