Worldwide Release of the Elevating Loving the Silent Tears: The Musical Album featuring Brazilian singer Fabiana Passoni, Jon Secada, Jody Watley and International Stars
Loving the Silent Tears: The Musical album recreates the magic of the new musical that explores humanity’s universal search for inner peace.
Vocalists representing 16 of the world’s glorious cultures include:
Loving the Silent Tears: The Musical was a unique celebration combining a talented team who collectively hold over two dozen Academy, Grammy, Tony and Emmy Awards. Oscar-winning composer Al Kasha (The Poseidon Adventure) was inspired to create and write music for the musical after reading the poetry anthology Silent Tears written by Supreme Master Ching Hai during her own spiritual quest. Mr. Kasha stated “Silent Tears…has touched my heart so greatly, that I saw the potential it had to affect people’s lives by being turned into a musical.”
As MTV noted, the composers are “titans in their musical fields” who include Jorge Calandrelli (Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon), Doug Katsaros (Footloose), Henry Krieger (Dreamgirls), Don Pippin (La Cage aux Folles), Nan Schwartz (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows) and David Shire (Saturday Night Fever).
Directed by Tony nominee Vincent Paterson (Michael Jackson’s and Madonna’s world tours) and choreographed by Emmy-winner Bonnie Story (High School Musical 1, 2, 3), Loving the Silent Tears transformed Supreme Master Ching Hai’s profound and engaging poems into a musical sensation that takes listeners across six continents. The one-time only benefit show was held on October 27, 2012 at the 6,300-seat Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, California.
In keeping with the international theme of the show, the music features a wide range of styles and genres, such as “Your Eyes, Your Ears, Your Heart,” performed by Fabiana Passoni in English and Portuguese and accompanied by samba dancing, Jody Watley’s song, the African-inspired “A Real Fool” with its rich, rhythmic melodies and distinct percussion, and the tender ballad “Singing Praise,” sung by Korean pop star Brian Joo and Korean-American singer Heather Park, incorporated elements of traditional Korean music. Singers representing other cultures include Camellia Abou-Odah (Arab), Mark Janicello (Italian), Liel Kolet (Israeli), and Katie McMahon (Irish).
