August 2012 update: The whale that inspired Raffi’s song has died at age 46. Story at The Examiner: here.
Baby Beluga, by Raffi, is the Peace Song of the Day for April 22nd — Earth Day 2012.
Since The Duke and Duchess of Peace have lived, worked, and played with environmentalists for so long, we know that there are so many layers, and so many issues for people who love the earth.* Though, it is sometimes fun to revel in the perceptions and stereotypes that others hold for you. So, in honor of all the folks like us who eat granola, hug trees, and try to save the whales, we chose this classic song for Earth Day 2012!
The Color Song by Patricia Shi is the Peace Song of the Day for January 4th. You can find the lyrics and chords to this song in the Rise Up Singing songbook on page 238. The song uses child-like images and simplicity to share an important message about diversity.
