From the album: For You A Thousand Times

My journeys to Africa have been powerful in every way: The poverty, the pride, the music and the children. In the song “It’s Gonna Rain” we meet a mother in Africa who is waiting for the life-giving rain. The drought is about to destroy her family – she’s struggling to keep her children alive.

This song is for SOS Children’s Villages and their work for children. Their work to support families, like the mother in my song, and children who are left alone in the world. I’ve been an ambassador for SOS Children’s Villages for more than ten years, and I hope this song can put focus on theconsequences of the drought that millions of children and their families are experiencing right now. The humanitarian crises in parts of Africa is describes as the worst since the second world war. 20 million people are struggling for their lives. Nearly half a million children under five years are seriously malnourished.

The crisis has been called the quiet drought. Because it happens slowly over many years and is characterized by silence. Every day it gets a little bit worse. Still it has not generated enough attention or sufficient funds to save all those affected. That’s why I sing for the children and their families.
