Stay Strong is a song and video featuring prominent chant and yoga luminaries who have come together to unite their hearts and voices for a worthy environmental cause. 100% of the proceeds go to Global Green USA.
The Stay Strong Project began in May, 2010 when chant artist and singer songwriter David Newman (Durga Das) heard a melody in his sleep. Upon waking in the middle of the night, he sang the melody into his phone and went back to bed. Several months later, on July 4th, he was reflecting on the devastating effects of the American Gulf Coast oil spill disaster. He then pulled out his phone and listened to that melody he had recorded in the middle of the night in May. Soon thereafter, these words accompanied the melody, ‘Stay Strong, Keep Your Faith Alive’. More lyrics followed and a special song had taken shape.
During the time that the song was written, David and his wife Mira, had been exploring ideas for supporting and empowering the global community during this time of crisis and were feeling called to action to bring healing and love to Mother Earth. It suddenly occurred to them that this new song, ‘Stay Strong’ provided the perfect vehicle!

“The vision of The Stay Strong Project is to create a global message that shows the community coming together through music, song, and prayer, to unite and uplift people and strengthen their ability to help in times of need.
