Olivia’s Song – Tip #423
I have a lot of people write and ask for me to just write a tip and advertise this or that and normally I say no but once I heard this song and Olivia’s voice, it is hard not to want to share it.
Olivia is an Army wife at Schofield Barracks, Hawaii, and yesterday she released a video for a song that she wrote for military spouses who (like herself) have endured countless deployments and separations.
No actors were used in the video – only active duty Army soldiers & their families who were preparing for deployments at the time of filming. Those soldiers are now deployed to Afghanistan, so the video is very much “art-meets-life.”
In addition, she has pledged to donate half of my proceeds from the song to the Fisher House Foundation to support military families.
I am including the YouTube link in hopes that you will share it too.
