Notes from the Songwriter
Rae Anne Kinney Pinehurst, NC

Our family lived in Luanda, Angola from 2003 to 2006. My husband and I are preparing to move back in about a month for three more years! We travelled extensively while there and LOVED Cape Town! This song spoke to me as it's a familiar story for so many people in Africa. I saw people just like Siyabonga and his mother every day on the streets. It makes you realize happiness comes not from material possessions but from working towards your dreams.
