Hello, my name is Erika Rybinski (performer name Erika Star) and I am a songwriter from a tiny town in Saskatchewan, Canada called "Kinistino". The lyrics and melody to this song came to me at 2:00am this morning while I was struggling to fall asleep. This is my very own original tribute to Robin Williams who enlightened the hearts of millions. It is so unfortunate that he is no longer with us. In this work, entitled "Robin, You're Free", I make a few references to some of my favorite Robin Williams films including Mrs. Doubtfire, Aladdin and Dead Poet's Society. (ie. Carpe Diem, seize the day, O captain...etc.) I refer to Mr. Williams as the bird "robin". In the beginning of the song, the lyrics outline how the robin flies gracefully in the sunshine. However, as time progresses, the robin realizes that the skies are not always sunny, nor is it easy to sail smoothly. Despite this - the robin continues to fly. In the end, the robin is exhausted and his wings are broken. However, the robin continues to fly. It is a deep interest of mine to promote mental health awareness through the lyrics of my song. The lyrics suggest that it is us, those left behind to mourn, that must accept the fate Robin Williams chose and "set him free." I hope you enjoy this work - and I apologize for the low quality, all I have is an iPhone and rickety old piano to record. RIP Robin Williams - you will be greatly missed. If you have any questions regarding this song, feel free to contact me at: erikabinski@gmail.com. A new and improved audio version will be made available in the near future, please subscribe :).
