Tacoma Refugee Choir – Moon Song (Official Music Video) 2024

Tacoma Refugee Choir presents "Moon Song" Words by Abby E. Murray, inspired by youth detained at Selma Carson Home Music by Erin Guinup The moon connects us all- to our loved ones far away, to our lands of origin, to our past and our future. We remain connected even as we engage in everyday activities such as eating, shopping, doing laundry, and working out. Our homeland never leaves us, and the moon offers hope for the future. We remain connected wherever we are by the moon.
