St. Louis songwriter, musician and singer, Gloria Attoun wrote a song promoting unity, kindness and getting along with each other.
It’s called ‘Love is Much More Beautiful’ and was performed and videotaped at The Stone Spiral Coffeehouse in Maplewood in front of a group of coffeehouse patrons who sang along. The St. Louis native and sometimes Maplewood resident recorded the song there because The Stone Spiral — and Maplewood in general — promotes and exudes creativity, diversity and unity, she said.
“I love this area and feel it can be a model for other places. It is an honor to be able to be a small part of this thriving inclusive and creative community,” Attoun said.
‘Love is Much More Beautiful’ is performed by Gloria, with her husband, Michael Bauermeister.
This highly percussive, spoken word, beat song begins with the lyric: “We live in times of shooting and looting and crying and lying and cheating and feuding. Let love and compassion, along with justice, guide us today and let love start with us.”
