Wind On the Water

Joan sings two songs for Producer Dan Daley. One he wrote the words and the other is a remake of a Bonnie Koloc version of a Tom Rush song. Proceeds benefit charities hurt by the 9-11-01 tragedy.

This song can be found on the website of the first National Memorial regarding 9-11 at the Flight 93 Memorial in California.  It is also one of about 40 songs in the Artists Registry for the 9-11 Memorial in New York.
