Featured Song: A Thousand Winds by Yukiko Haneda

fadista “A Thousand Winds” from the 2010 album Fadista is based on a famous American Poem,” Do not stand at my grave and weep”.

Japanese award winner novelist MAN ARAI translated and made into this beautiful song.

Man Arai send this song to Yukiko in 2003. It took time for her to figure it out the best key and arrangement for this song . Recorded in 2007.

Here is the original poem:

Do not stand at my grave and weep.
I am not there. I do not sleep.

I am a thousand winds that blow.

I am the diamond glints on snow.

I am the sunlight on ripened grain.

I am the gentle autumn rain.

When you awaken in the morning’s hush

I am the swift uplifting rush

Of quiet birds in circled flight.

I am the soft stars that shine at night.

Do not stand at my grave and cry;

I am not there. I did not die.

“I have long been an advocate for animal adoption and know first-hand the immense joy a shelter animal brings to our lives,” said executive producer and co-host Hilary Swank. “Yet, every year more than four million animals are euthanized because of overcrowding in shelters. We are so fortunate to have an animal advocate in the FOX network that not only sees the need for more awareness surrounding this issue, but is willing to set aside a two-hour block for this important cause. This partnership will change the path of a soul for thousands of animals looking for their forever home.”

“We’ve seen the entertainment industry come together for so many worthwhile causes benefiting people, now it’s time for them to rally for man’s best friend.  It warms my heart that so many animal loving celebrities are stepping up in support of all the beautiful souls that need us to be their voice,” said executive producer Michael Levitt. “This is our big opportunity to change the misperception of shelter animals and show the world that rescuing a dog is always the way to go.”

“There are a number of entertainment specials for humans, but very few for the species we humans most love and cherish. In this first-of-its kind event, FOX will offer viewers the chance to appreciate the role that dogs play in our lives, contribute to homeless dog charities, and even adopt rescue dogs of their own,” said Simon Andreae, Executive Vice President, Alternative Entertainment, FOX. “We know that Hilary and Michael’s passion and the enthusiasm of everyone involved will make a huge difference to the lives of hopeful humans and homeless dogs right across the country.”

Swank is a versatile artist with a wide range of projects spanning her more than 20 years in the entertainment industry. Her upcoming films include “The Homesman,” opposite director/screenwriter Tommy Lee Jones and “You’re Not You,” in which she stars and produces with Molly Smith through their production company, 2S Films.  In addition to her work within the film industry, Swank has been a longtime supporter of several charity organizations, but recently expanded her reach in the philanthropy world with the launch of her own charity, The Hilaroo Foundation. Through her efforts, the foundation will bring youth, who have been given up on, and animals, who have been abandoned, together to help heal one another through Rescue, Rehabilitation, Animal Adoption and Responsibility Training.

THE GREAT AMERICAN DOG-A-THON is produced by Michael Levitt Productions.  Swank and Levitt (“Skin Wars,” “Billboard Music Awards,” “TV Land Awards”) are executive producers.

f160b2e9a86a47b980b40bcf5d956b02.image!jpeg.35944.jpg.Logo2014_web

ALONE is a site-specific, immersive and artistic exploration of fear, loneliness and self preservation. It’s a thirty minute walkthrough experience which you may only enter completely alone and become a willing victim to your own inner demons. Borrowing the structure of a typical haunted house, but ditching the blood, guts and psychotic clowns with chainsaws, ALONE explores the deepest regions of the bizarre, and places you as a participant in your own nightmare.

A full immersion event which you can only enter by yourself.
Your body will move and be moved through our space.

UNDISCLOSED LOCATION // DOWNTOWN LOS ANGELES
ALONE operates in the unknown. Our location is no different. Ticket buyers will receive information via email a couple days prior to their ticketed date with information and location details. ALONE will be in the central Los Angeles area.

Yukiko will appear at ALONE on October 25th!
