This Year (Happy New Year)

I heard a wonderful song by David and  JJ Heller this week! The lyrics are awesome and inspiring. You can imaging my elation when I saw later in the week the following post by JJ Heller…


Learn it? Play it? Post it? YES!

I got my dad to help me out by playing his mandolin and singing some harmonies, and here’s the end result. Hope you like it!

This Year (Happy New Year) by JJ Heller (cover by Paige Givens and Tim Muncher)

There will actually be a winner that’s posted on her Youtube page for a week, and while I’d be dishonest to say I don’t care about winning, I really just loved being able to “learn it, play it, and post it.” The satisfaction that comes from completing a new song and sharing it with my friends is far greater than winning a contest.

I almost dismissed the opportunity because I thought I was too busy. I almost passed it because I didn’t want to see myself on a video!!! I almost didn’t call my dad to help me out because I didn’t think we’d have enough time to get it together by Sunday. But I knew that if I didn’t do it, I’d regret it. Not passing up the chance to win something, but passing up the chance to do something!

You should check out the other covers on JJ Heller’s facebook page or on Youtube. There are so many creative musicians in the world who are doing something!

“So long to last year, it’s all becoming so clear. There’s no use living in regret. Let’s fight a good fight, train our eyes to find the light, and make this year the best one yet. Starting right here, happy new year!”~ David and JJ Heller
