|We have a very simple call-and-response song called "We are Going" that was written in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. It actually came to me in a dream.

We sing all world music, in about 25 languages. See the "Our Music" page at www.KaiaSing.com and let me know if you're interested in anything. I can hook you up with sheet music for most of it. We are all-female but the rep should be easy to convert to TTBB.

It's a plug-in that allows you to specify how many copies can be printed (I usually see this limited to two). You can also watermark the pages or place a tag on it saying how m...|

The speaker then corrected the pronunciation until the singers could do it correctly. We will periodically revisit this, as pronunciation can "stra...|
