[ laughter ] >> tenesha: perfect for this time! >> and our iroquois women, we had a great influence on our country. so all that coupled with my experiences in life, i wrote this song called one world and that's comes from one world and christmas of course i had a chance to sing in bulembu at manger square on christmas eve in fronts of thousands of people. and the cover of the album is actually a picture that i took of where baby jesus was born, the manger. and some people don't have a clue what that looks like or would be too afraid to go. and i say we fear fear itself more than anything. not living our life to a degree where we say hey, why don't i try that? you know let's give it a shot. so being that i have a lot of background in.christianity because i went to bible school so to speak, and i have an aunt who loves christmas mutually, she's always been after me to do an album. i suppose that was in part, also i knew that bambi would lend some beautiful vibration for this album. i know people are going to love it, i've already heard it extreme loud in front of thousands of people and it was just glorious. >> sistina: we want you to know that we have two
