Heaven Can Wait
This song is dedicated to the memory of Whitney Houston, a beloved vocal artist who was recently killed by FDA-approved prescription medications and sadly became the latest victim of the deadly pharmaceutical industry (with its "pop another pill" marketing and advertising).
"Heaven Can Wait" encourages children and teens to throw away their dangerous psychiatric drugs and prescription medications. Instead, they are inspired to find meaning and happiness in being who they truly are without turning to chemical intervention and psychiatric drugs.

Video Production Stills
Here are a few photos taken during production of the music video:
This song has been in production for a full year, on and off. The music was completed in the summer of 2011, and the vocals were recorded in my home studio using little more than a PC laptop and Cakewalk Sonar software.
Principal video photography was done in studios in South Austin in July, 2011, and then editing of the video was pursued on and off in the months since then.
The final video combines live footage filmed in studio with a few royalty-free videos and images licensed on the web. The teen actor in the video is Hunter Dersch, based in Austin, Texas. He did a great job on the video shoot and has done a lot of work in various film and broadcast projects. See more credits below...
The exotic vocalist
The "exotic" vocalist for the song is Naga Valli, whose voice adds a powerful dimension to the entire song. She's also based in Austin, Texas, and has done work on a long list of vocal projects. She's incredibly talented, as you might have guessed, and we hope to have her work on other projects in the future.
You can find her website at: www.NagaValli.com

Photography and crew
Mike Angelo Torres and Tom Campbell did the photography on the video. They were also the photographers for my previous song, We're Doin' Alright.
The production company was Region-C with Ashlee Cohen, in Austin, Texas.
Music: Andy Dollerson and Jacob Owen
The music for this song was produced in an unusual way. I had written the lyrics and actually recorded the lyrics based on a different music track. I approached Andy and Jacob to write a new music track that would be more inspiring than the original and still manage to match the existing vocals. (This is not a wise way to write a finished song. It's much more efficient to finalize the music before you record the vocals, but that's not the way this song happened...)
They did an amazing job, as you can now hear for yourself. They also recorded the vocals of Naga Valli, whose angelic voice added a whole new dimension to the song.

Andy Dollerson was the key musician on this piece, and I worked with him on and off for many weeks in the studio, going over each detail in the song to get the mix "just right." He's an extremely talented musician and final mix master, and he's done a lot of work on high-end video game music as well. You can find him at: www.AndyDollerson.com
Together with Jake Owen, he has just launched a new music production company and website: DOsounds, LLC. See the announcement (and listen to some music samples) at: http://andydollerson.com/2012/02/website/
The website for their new music production company is: www.DOsounds.com
If you're a video game company, a high-end music producer, or a filmmaker who needs score music, I highly recommend Andy and Jake. They're professional, extremely talented, and now becoming increasingly well known for their work on various projects, including the Amethios songs we've been publishing.
Did you think you were the only lonely one
You think your life is so unbearable
Heaven can wait
You showed the world the love you always had
They don't recognize the gifts you have inside
Heaven can wait
You gotta hold on to tomorrow
There's still so much in life ahead of you
If your find your circumstances haunt your mind
With the eyes of a child always seeking
I'm gonna make good with life
I gotta keep moving on
