Sean Needham: A Child Could Save Us All

An inspirational song from Sean Needham:

Sean says this about the song:
I wrote 'A Child Could Save Us All' while on a trip to my hometown of Donegal (Ireland) for Christmas. My wife was expecting our first child and I was trying to figure out what life was all about. I'm still working on that one §8-) The animation was created by my good friend and percussionist Rikke
You can download a copy of the song here courtesy of Sean.
