about

Brendan Adams is making moves again! The Single, “Brighter” is one of the 12 Jewels on this piercing singer/songwriters Album “Spirit” which will be released May 16th of 2014.

The song “Brighter” is inspired by modern day heroes, as all great heroes through time have inspired poetry and song. The South African artist Brendan Adams composed this timeless tune in honour of Nelson Mandela. This is a song that was born from Brendan’s visits to Robben Island, where Mandela spent most of his years in prison. Brendan's father was a volunteer tour guide on the island along with ex-political prisoners and the perspective's he gained from their intimate knowledge of it's history moulded the song "Brighter" The song was also considered for the sound track of the latest movie based on the book "A long walk to freedom“.

Track Name: Brighter
Underneath the harsh sun
Between boulders of lime
Stood many brave souls
Shedding through the time
Strong minds weren’t put down by the blinding sun
No spirits daunted
By being fed only crumbs

Brighter
Brighter than the sun
Was the spirit of the greatest men
Who believed in right now
Way back then

Time cannot be erased
Memories cannot be replaced
In the minds of some of the greatest men
Who believed in right no way back then

Brighter
Brighter than the sun
Was the spirit of the greatest men
Who believed in right now
Way back then

Deprived of meal but who could steal
The knowledge the future would reveal
Working with stone right to the bone
Were the proud men who reclaimed their throne
Couldn’t be stopped with two right shoes
It’s the spirit within that could not be bruised

Brighter
Brighter than the sun
Was the spirit of the greatest men
Who believed in right now
Way back then
