THE BEAUTY OF DIFFERENCES

The Beauty of Differences was inspired by Jean’s time here in the USA, the way stepping out of your comfort zone opens your eyes to yourself and others. Surrounded by nature and inspired by the beauty, his compositions reflect the spiritual journey he’s been on.

The recent political climate has brought to light ways we as humans might respond to difference. With news of terrorist attacks around the world, one temptation is to build walls instead of look for ways to create bridges. In this time of instability, what is it that binds us together? The Beauty of Differences is a celebration of the diversity that is our humanity. Rather than trying to eliminate or ignore the differences between humans, this album seeks to explore the beauty that lies there within.
