One Spirit

In keeping with the continuing ’On This Day’ theme, today’s my birthday (April 15), so today I’d like to share with you a piano version of the song that I wrote which inspired me to found One World Sight Project, Inc., a 501.c.3 charity devoted to raising funds to cure needless blindness around the world. 

This song is dedicated to the tens of millions of needlessly blind people in the world who could be permanently cured with a simple 20 minute cataract operation that in many cases costs as little as $20!

This performance is dedicated to Stevie Wonder, Nelson Mandela, Bob Welsh MD, and  David Paton MD, who have all helped with their personal encouragement, advice and support.  You can visit One World Sight Project at 

I hope you like it.

PS Here is a vocal version of One Spirit – sung, arranged and performed by my good friend Jimmy Hopper (I also call him “the voice!”) Thanks again, Jimmy.   The image is an original, created by Jimmy’s daughter when she was a young child!


One Spirit

Bosendorfer piano sound – For this recording I’m playing a Yamaha Clavinova – which has the same keyboard action as a traditional acoustic piano, but there are no strings. Pressing a key activates (in this case) a sound which was sampled from a Bösendorfer Imperial Concert Grand piano. Try listening to it with a good set of headphones! It sounds better than any piano I’ve ever owned!!
