About this Track:
"Kizuna links us, it's something that cannot be seen.
Guides you without you knowing, you got to believe!"

On March 11th, 2011, a magnitude 9.0 earthquake and resulting tsunami tore through the northern area of Japan, forever changing the lives of the people of the Tohoku area. ManoaDNA joins forces with Jake Shimabukuro to humbly offer "Feel the Light," a song reflecting the inner strength of the survivors.


Sometimes when the world is dark
And you can't see the way without getting lost
Just close your eyes and feel the light
The light of Aloha that's shining so bright

Feel the light, and feel so alive
Feel the light, together the world will sing
Feel the light, we'll be by your side
Feel the light

Never lose faith and hope
It feels like the bottom but keep your head up
Say a little prayer too much to say
The darkness will fade and bring a new day

Kizuna links us, it's something that cannot be seen
Guides you without you knowing, you've gotta believe
