“Keeping the Hope” Song Release


Laurie Glass’s poem, “Even Though,” selected from the 2019 Hope and Heart Unite for ME / CFS Poetry & Art Slam, was interpreted by singer/songwriters Maxwell Elefant and 95North. OMF and Lev Leytzan are thrilled with the melody these young composers have created. It will touch your soul and boost your spirits for the promise of a better tomorrow.

Keeping the Hope” is a brilliant new song written, scored, and performed by Maxwell and 95North.

The “album” cover art, “Moon Tide,” was selected from the many beautiful art submissions. Artist Isabel Butler, of the United Kingdom, expresses her passion and voice through her art.

“This project has brought passion and art together and will offer inspiration and hope for millions of people. We are thrilled to share this song of hope,” said Linda Tannenbaum, OMF Founder and CEO/President.
