Roots Song of the Week- Christina Martin “There Is A Light”   Leave a comment


Christina-Martin-78-120x120Christina Martin is a songwriter, musician, and vocalist based in the Canadian Maritimes, a citizen of the world. She is in the midst of an incredibly moving project, releasing each week this month a song  in recognition of Alzheimer Awareness Month. The project is called Remember Me.

I’ll leave the extensive writing to that which is already posted to Christina’s website; it is much more meaningful than anything I could create. Each week she is featuring a story from a person who is living with Alzheimer’s in their families. The stories are simple and powerful.

And the songs Christina has written in acknowledgment of the devastation of this disease are beautiful, filled with strength and dignity.

The second of the songs is “There Is A Light.” 

We’re in our third or fourth year of this journey. Martin’s songs are surprisingly comforting.

Dementia is a beast.
