Be the Light at Carnegie Hall!
Song of the Week • 4m 15s
When people of faith build bridges across communities, the most wonderful things can happen, like when Cantor Schwartz and Reverend Ian Johnson take the stage together and exhort the audience to shine their light to the world.

Music: Reverend Ian Johnson
Music Director: Ray Chew
Producers: Vivian Scott Chew, Ray Chew
