Song Composed in Friend's Merit

Inspired by the courageous struggle of a 20 year old friend who has been diagnosed with Leukemia, Lubavitch pianist Sarah Dukes has released a new single, 'Dancing in the Dark,' as a free download.

Lubavitch pianist Sarah Dukes, who recently released her debut album 'Finding Forever' is hoping to raise awareness - and increase the performance of good deeds - for a young man from her hometown who needs a refuah shelaima.

Inspired by the courageous struggle of her friend, 20-year-old Zachary (Zacharya Avraham Baruch Ben Chana Raiza), who has been diagnosed with Leukemia, Dukes has released a free single, 'Dancing in the Dark,' a piano solo played by world renowned pianist Yaron Gershovsky.

The song is very emotional for Dukes. "'Dancing in the Dark' represents pain and darkness that we experience in our lives, but how we are believers, sons of believers and we must continue to dance through the darkness," she says.

"We know that G-d is with us, watching over us and taking care of us, and we must have faith that He will take us all out of this darkness very soon and give us revealed reasons to dance!"

Post a good deed that you will do in honor of Zacharys speedy recovery. Afterwards you are entitled to download the song below. May we only hear good news!

Proud Sister
Sarah, You are undeniably an amazing shlucha. I think it's wonderful how you use your unique talent to help light up the world and the lives of others.

IY'H may Zach have an immediate refuah sheleima and may all who need a refuah sheleima or any kind of yeshuah be comforted with the imminent ultimate redemption.

Wow! what a beautiful way to get people to do mitzvos! It is a beautiful song and I love the explanation behind it!
My mitzvah is that I am going to try to concentrate on the words that I am saying when I daven shemonah esrei today, instead of rushing through it.
Sarah, you are an inspiration and I love all of your music. Your CD helps keep all of us calm :-) May G-d bless you that you should continue to inspire us with your beautiful, soulful compositions!
