I have been working on a new song with my dear friend Kimka from Switzerland it’s called Dancing in a World of Kindness . Recently our words were read at an international conference for Women held in Israel. Kim has muscular dystrophy and is one of the bravest women I know. I met her when I worked with Phil and Orianne Collin’s charity called Little Dreams Foundation in Switzerland. It’s my privilege to be working with Kim she is such an inspiring ,talented young woman with an incredible spirit. http://www.kimka.ch/en/biography
Here is a snipit from our song…..hope to record it very soon!
Dancing in a World of Kindness
copyright Kim Kneble and Corinne Gibbons
Du bout des lèvres (from the tip of the lips)
(with a smile) you can create the sweet dance
Du bout des lèvres (from the tip of the lips)
(with a smile) you can save a stranger from the darkness
Du bout des lèvres (from the tip of the lips) (with a smile) you can sow seeds of joy for ever
Du bout des lèvres (from the tip of the lips) (with a smile) you can dry the tears of all the world
Imagine how the world could be if I could see the light in you see the light in me
Imagine all the fear slips away and we are free to be humanity.
Dancing in a world of Kindness…..dancing in a world …….of Kindness

Off to LA!!!
I love LA! So many fond memories of my time there recording and hanging out at Santa Monica in the late 90’s.
This trip I did a guest spot with my Dear pal Kara Grainger who is singing up a storm, thanks for the invitation Kara.
Off to Northern California to have some R and R and to prepare for some songwriting workshops that I will be co presenting with my friends Saul and Elena. California has to be one of the most beautiful places on the planet and spending time in the Sierra’s is a yearly pilgrimage for me. More on the workshops to come…
We, Saul and Elena and friends did a fundraising Benefit for a very talented aerial dancer who had an unfortunate accident and is now a paraplegic. The benefit raised a substantial amount of funds for Teresa and was a lovely gathering of generous community minded people.
A month has passed and now I’m homeward bound now for Singapore !!

“Students are all back and writing some amazing songs working towards our upcoming concert in April!”
Here is a recent letter I received from one of my students parents.
“Through your calm tenderness and warm encouragement Gabriella is exuding confidence! We have watched her grow week by week, month by month. She sings with true passion which you have continued to feed by allowing her to be herself and develop her own individual style in both her song choice and song writing. Your lessons are fun and she thoroughly enjoys and looks forward to them. There is as much laughter as there is singing. You have a gift of making all your students feel very special indeed.
Thank you also for being so generous of spirit and sharing endless opportunities for them to sing. We are so blessed!”
The concert was truly wonderful – the choice of voice appropriate songs, the peppy songwriting & tunes & the beautiful singing!! The joy derived from the process was evident in the children’s faces!! Thanks so much for inspiring them.
Our Glee club has been meeting on Tuesday evenings in Feb and such a great combination of laughter and song !
