World On Fire February 19, 2005

I’ve been a fan of Sarah McLachlan for a long time, at least since “Fumbling Towards Ecstacy” came out in 1993. I saw her in concert three times, twice at Lilith Fair. Her music has always seemed so powerful to me, so full of passion. She really seems to sing from the heart.

After recently discovering what she did with her “World On Fire” video, I have even more respect and admiration for her.

View the video here

Even if you aren’t a Sarah fan, this video deserves a look just for the message that it has.

I admire her for doing something different and donating nearly $150,000 (the typical cost of making a video) to charities around the world. Imagine if every artist did that with just one video, what a difference it could make.

Anyway, Sarah is an inspiration to me. She seems like such a grounded person who isn’t wrapped up in all the money and fame that can accompany stardom. She uses her status to help bring about change and make the world a better place and I think that’s awesome.

    I love Sarah McLachlan’s music, er more like poetry if you ask me. I was elated to see that video several months back, to know that one of the two of my favorite artists (the other being Jewel) has such a big mouth and can put her money where her heart is.

    That is hands down, the BEST video ever made IMO.

    Opps, instead of “has such a big mouth” LOL, should have been “has such a big heart.”

    If you click on the link to her website, the video should automatically start playing, but maybe you need some software to see it? I’m not sure.
    Sorry I can’t be of more help.
