The Stay Strong Story
The Stay Strong Project was originally conceived as a kind of ‘We are the World’ concept for the chant and yoga community initiated by a song called Stay Strong written by chant artist/singer songwriter David Newman (Durga Das). The Stay Strong single was released in partnership with Global Green USA to support efforts for the Gulf Coast recovery after the devastating oil spill of 2010.
The song, Stay Strong, was released along with an accompanying video in February of 2011, and featured prominent chant and yoga luminaries including, David Newman, Mira, Krishna Das, Wah, Jai Uttal, Sharon Gannon, Snatam Kaur, Seane Corn, Donna De Lory, Sean Johnson, Dave Stringer, Girish, Shantala, Shyam Das, Govindas and Radha, C.C. White, Saul David Raye, Bob Wisdom, Brenda McMorrow, Radhanath Swami, and many more.
