"Golden Earrings" is one of the most requested songs for Jody to sing in her shows. Recorded while performing at the Hollywood Studio Bar & Grill, in
California, Sept. 2011, show produced by Dolores Petersen. The amazing Karen Hernandez on keys, Tony Dumas on bass, and Ralph Penland on drums.... look them up... they are major players!

Jody fell in love with this song as a child, when she saw the movie "Golden Earrings" starring Ray Milland and Marlena Dietrich and it's story has haunted her ever since.

In this video of photos, Jody shared a couple of family pictures in the midst
of her performing stills.

Some photos by JC Jaress (Jody's son), Yolanda Poe, and Dani Brubacker. The Vintage photos unknown photographer.

Music by Victor Young, Lyrics by Jay Livingston and Ray Evans.

"Golden Earrings" lyrics as sung by Jody Jaress

There's a story
The gypsys know is true
That when your love wears golden earrings
They belongs to you

An old love story
That's known to very few
That if you wear... golden earrings
Love will come to you

By the golden fire
They will glow
With every coal

You will hear desire
Whisper low
Inside your soul

So be my gypsy
Make love your guiding light
And let this pair
Of golden earrings
Cast their spell tonight

Jaijai, what a wonderful mission you've undertaken to create such a place for artistic minds to meet and share their hearts. A place to renew faded determinations, and revive lessened momentums. A place to display our wares and reconfirm to one another that we actually are on the right track.

I commend you, Jaijai, for caring so much that you created this castle of the heart for all of us. I want to share my praise for all of the new friends as well as old friends that I've met and will meet here in our castle. Here we can garnish the where-with-all, the strength, the conviction, and the selflessness through our symbiosis, to share our gift to the world with an unbiased agenda.

My mentor, Daisaku Ikeda says of art: "A beautiful flower delights and refreshes the hearts of all people equally, no matter what soil it grows in. That is the power of beauty. The same is true of great art. It is this spirit that the German poet Heinrich Heine sang of when he wrote that once the peapod bursts open, the sugar peas inside are for everyone to enjoy."

Let's be audacious, my friends!
