PROLOGUE

There is now a link to listen to each song!

Southern California-based songwriter Ron Ovadia has been creating songs for years. He believes music has a powerful purpose and can help connect people to a greater cause and to each other. Besides the works on his Songs and Videos pages, he has written many other songs — a “prologue” to his current work. The following are some of these other songs of hope and aspiration - or in some cases, pure whimsy.

Words & Music: Ron Ovadia, with Nargues Ovadia; Vocals: Renee Safier – a memorial to her wife’s aunt. I’ve considered writing a version of this for a universal audience, but Nargues says it’s “copyright protected” for her aunt. 

Tomorrow's Child_v2

Words & Music: Ron Ovadia, with Peter Stougaard; Vocals: Sally Stevens – the featured song in EPCOT’s Spaceship Earth for nearly 10 years.
