Songs of the Week: Rainbows, Stars, Headwinds and the Morning Sun

POZ’s fund-raising project for AIDS Walk New York, Love Out Loud at Prohibition on 14 May 2008 continues to grow. Feel free to make a direct donation: the donor page can be accessed by clicking on the AIDS Walk banner above . The event continues to be chronicled here and that’s where the local celebrities who have lent their names to help promote this project are announced.

To make it easy for you, here are some of the celebrities who will be in attendance: Amanda Baker (All My Children), BethAnn Bonner (One Life to Live), Mark Dobies (One Life to Live/Guiding Light), Marj Dusay (Guiding Light), Melissa Claire Egan (All My Children), Thorsten Kaye (All My Children), Ilene Kristen (One Life to Live), John-Paul Lavoisier (One Life to Live), Billy Miller (All My Children), and Matt Walton (All My Children/One Life to Live).

As always, appearances are contingent on shooting schedules. Still this year looks very good for this effort as our event grows. There will be more names added as the date draws near.

The good people at Prohibition, BGR Web Design, Graphic Communications, Law & Order: CI, Law & Order: SVU, Soap Maven, Christina Gan & All My Children have lent valuable assistance in moving ahead. Something like this tends to bring out the best in people.

There are the very generous people who have responded to donation solicitation and the fun auctions on EBay, items numbered: 120250921667, 120252014435, 120252674100 and 120253084039.

Come, join us. Let us know: respond to papag@pozevent.com.

This week's music is uplifting, hopeful and something of a thank you note to all the great people who have made this happen for the third year in a row.

Put the weight on my shoulders
Take the load off your mind
Cause the headwinds that blow
Will fade away in time

Rest yourself on my waters
Take the lifeline from me
Rise above what has passed
And let yourself be free

I only know what love must bear
Through laden times I will be there
And when you're down I'll break the fall
'Cause the weight on my shoulders
Ain't no weight at all

I only know what love must do
When fortune cries I'll follow you
And when you're down I'll break your fall
'Cause the weight on my shoulders
ain't no weight at all

Put the weight on my shoulders
See your star how it shines
Cause there're so many dreams
Left to find

Put the weight on my shoulders .....
