Our network began almost 20 years ago, in an effort to protect water.

Young Canadian Coco Love Alcorn, songwriter and musician, wrote The River.  In the youtube, she’s the one with short black hair, front, left.

  • Two nights ago I went to visit Karla Mundy and her Rhythm ‘n Roots choir in Vancouver. I stood and listened as they sang their version of my song The River. It was an incredible moment to hear a song I’d written 2 years ago come to life with their soloist Noa Neuman Spivak and 40 plus voices.  In less than a minute I was wiping some misty tears of joy and raw emotion off my cheeks. Like a proud song mama!


(Sandra speaking)  I like the video!   The lyrics are below.    From “The River”  I went to Coco’s song  “Revolution“.  Crazy how I came across Coco at a time when I was posting  “Hear the People Sing“, a now international song of protest from “Les Miserables”.


From the album Wonderland

The river is a healer
The river is a sage
The river knows no end
And the river feels no age
The river is a leader
Every single day
It’s living in the moment
And it always finds a way

Water heal my body
Water heal my soul
When I go down, down
To the water
By the water I feel whole

The river calls me over
It’s calling out my name
In the day and in the night
I hear that river all the same
It’s calling me over
Calling out my pain
Oh a river gathers tears
Just like a river gathers rain


The river is a traveller
Always on the go
A river never worries
If it’s fast or if it’s slow
River take me
To where I need to go
Oh, and I will just relax
And let the river flow
