“Save The World” by Irena Hart is the nineteenth song to be featured on my Blog as part of my mission to provide you with inspiration through songs that have been performed by musicians on Alive with Clive in the past couple of years.
Irena, who has appeared on Alive with Clive three times, performed “Save The World” during her second interview on Alive with Clive on October 10, 2008.
This is what you’ll discover about Irena from her Bio on her MySpace page at www.myspace.com/irenahart:
Combine pop, dance, a message with spiritual compassion and love and you get Irena Hart. Born in the Ukraine as Irena Makarchuk, Irena moved to the United States when she was 12 and brought with her a European perspective that provides freshness to her music. She is a prolific composer with over 100 songs written, and is also an entertainer. Having developed a fan base in the New York area, Irena is now ready to explode on to the world stage.
There is something uniquely different about this musical beauty. A trained mechanical engineer, she holds 10 patents that range from medical science to ecologically friendly photo film. With so many talents and gifts, her passions lie with inspiring and empowering the homeless — and for a reason. She was homeless for two years. Take Irena’s heart, creativity, intellectual brilliance, and experiences and join them with the innovative American pop producer, Marcus “Bellringer” Bell, and you have a hit album that can move the masses.
Irena’s electrifying album, “Heart Strings,” [with a sound I describe as Lady Gaga meets ABBA], contemplates love and also keeps you “On the Dance Floor.” The first release off of the album is the title track, “Heart Strings.” The music video for “Heart Strings” is a display of the struggle to let go of the person you love when you know he or she is no good for you. The video showcases her talent and creativity as a dynamic artist. Along with its catchy dance melodies and memorable hooks, the “Heart Strings” album is sure to provide mega-hits across Europe and the US.
Irena is not only an entertainer. She is also becoming a visible personality and brand. She has been a freelance reporter for Oasis TV, a Los Angeles based Time Warner Cable TV network; appeared as a musical guest on many radio and television shows, such as WPKN, WICC, WVOF, SIRIUS Radio, and Alive with Clive, to name a few; and was featured in the October 2008 issue of Better Health and Living Magazine as well as in the Connecticut Post. She wrote the theme music for a TV show, Touchstones (which she also hosted); wrote and recorded the theme song called “It’s Our Turn” for the Boltwic online community; and composed and recorded the Harmony4Kidz theme song, “Save the World.”
Irena has personally touched and affected over 100 homeless kids that sleep on the streets of America. Her musical talents and the reflection of their plight in her own experience compelled her to form the not-for-profit organization, Harmony4Kidz. Through Harmony4Kidz, she seeks to feed, clothe, and find shelter for homeless youth all over the world. Irena is also working on a book about her homeless experience called Bermuda Road. With music and the arts, Irena transforms lives with her authentic story. Her music and personhood have powerful messages and international appeal.
Irena Hart is a happening about to happen. As she takes the global stage — get ready — and dance!
During her second interview on Alive with Clive on October 10, 2008, Irena explained where the inspiration for the song, “Save The World,” came from, as follows:
“I was planning a concert in Central Park and needed a street team of kids to spread the word. A 17-year old girl brought us to a team of kids to do the street team job. It turned out they were all homeless kids. It was a real shock to me. Right that night, after I met all the kids, I went to see the Al Gore movie, ‘An Inconvenient Truth,’ about global warming and everything that’s going on, and… just… the two incidents together really upset me. First of all, why are there homeless kids in the heart of New York City? It was Union Square Park, and, you know, up to that point I was pretty much self-absorbed doing my own thing not really thinking about the environment, not really thinking about that there might be people that are in need. Well, I woke up the next morning with a song – which… I normally don’t wake up with a song… usually I have to sit down… it doesn’t just happen… all… the whole song with the melody line, all the chords and everything – and it’s called ‘Save The World.’”
The themes of homelessness and global warming, together with Irena’s awakening, are thus deftly woven into the lyrics of “Save The World,” in which she declares:
Me I was sleeping
I didn’t have big dreams at all
Then I woke up one day. I decided to
Save the world
. . . .
Me I am no one special
Just your average ordinary girl
But I can make a difference
Cause I decided I can
Save the world
That experience, as noted in Irena’s Bio above, also led her to form Harmony4Kidz. She has gone on to organize and perform at benefit concerts to raise funds for Harmony4Kidz and continues to take steps to carry out the mission of the organization. For more information about Harmony4Kidz, go to www.harmony4kidz.org.
On behalf of all of us, I hereby acknowledge Irena not just for taking action when she was called upon to do so to write and record the song, “Save The World,” but also for the positive, uplifting and inspiring impact she has had in sharing the song with all of us and creating Harmony4Kidz. Thank you, Irena!
