Looking back at a great 2014
I am thankfully looking back to a great 2014 that has held so many beautiful events for me. Together with my team we have prepared our album 'JEWEL' for the Asian market and will soon be able to launch it in Aisia as 'ASIAN JEWEL'. This Album contains a DVD with life performances and interviews. A special highlight has been performing for His Holiness the 17th Karmapa on 7th June during his historic first visit to Europe in Berlin. I was able to visit Eastern Tibet with my producer Helge van Dyk and a Film team from Filmgerberei to shoot a documentary film on the social projects of my DEWA CHE FOUNDATION www.dewache-foundation.com and also some beautiful video clips for the new Album 'DAY TOMORROW'. These will be put on youtube along the release of the Album on 4th March 2015. My book was successfully launched by the German Publisher Ullstein/Allegria in Berlin and is bringing a lot of precious moments to a lot of readers. We were nominated for the 'International Tara Award' by the famous Thai nun, the Venerable Mae Chee Sansanee from the Sathira Dammasathan Center in Bangkok for the Album JEWEL as well as for BEYOND. It has been a great honor for all of us to personally receive this award on 31st October. We have successfully presented the music of 'DAY TOMORROW' at pre-release concerts and been overwhelmed by the positive feedbacks. I am therefore really looking forward to touring with my 'DAY TOMORROW' Ensemble and take the music to the people. 'CHILDREN BEYOND' has achieved Gold Status in Switzerland and I want to congratulate Regula Curti on her amazing efforts. I am extremely happy for all the kids that participated in this project and who enchant so many people with their voices.
Tonight is the last day of the year. Wherever you are… have a great party and let go all your worries…. Take you loved ones in your arms and be grateful that you have each other to care for…
Let 2015 be a brilliant year for you!
Your sincerely, Dechen
