U.S. Jewish Songwriter Composing for Independence Day

American Jewish songwriter Lawrence Dermer, who has sold more than 50 million records throughout the world, is coming out with a We are Strong song for the 60th anniversary of the re-establishment of the Jewish state. The new work will include the sounds of Ethiopian olim, whom he recorded at their absorption center.

Dermer and his wife Robin also have co-produced an album entitled Third House Rising, featuring songs such as Neshama [soul] and The Maker, a blend of Jewish pop, Latin and Chassidic sounds.
