Eine Kleine Trunk Musik: Shirt Upon Her Back

Twenty-five years ago, my sister Robin and I wrote this tribute to our immigrant grandparents.

Now, in 2021, this song has taken on a new meaning - from the personal, as they say, to the universal.

I hope you see your own family in this video and hear their story in our song.

Thank you to everyone who sent us their wonderful family photos!!

With much love - Michele
