Be Open

I adore starting song circles with this easy fast-track to upliftment. Look no further for the perfect recipe to instantly dissipate nervous energy among new singers, and rock the hearts and smiles of your most willing. Thank you Debbie Nargi-Brown.

Be open for something wonderful to happen

Be open to the possibility (x2)

Aiye Aiye Aiye, Aiye Aiye Aiye (x2)

Teaching Notes

This song is such a great opener.  Debbie and I invite singers to think of something they want to manifest in your life, sing this song and watch what happens.


Level of teaching speed/ difficulty (1 = very easy, 10 = very challenging)

  • hello! we want to teach this to a group of children to sing it with an audience at the closing of a nonprofit giant puppet show for Boxerwood nature center in Lexington. The children have worked all summer to create the puppets and other music (primarily on drums and with Orff instruments). In the community, I have been teaching the song in singalongs this past year (in conjunction with some local groups and Music That Makes Community)–it’s a favorite! We would, of course, credit Debbie Nargi-Brown. Can you help with how I would reach her for permission?

  • I sang this at the Oregon Country Fair in the sauna with around 40 other people. It was one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever experienced.
