Rick Birman discovered me at a gig we did over twenty years ago in Ramat Hahayal and we became friends.
He promoted musicians and singers relentlessly and introduced me to Marina when she was only fourteen years old. She already had her tremendous musical gifts, and an attitude to go along with it. I wanted to do a benefit for Rick to raise money for his hear surgery. We had a wonderful evening in the port and raised over 7000 shekels.
It wasn't enough. Rick died on Christmas of the same year. In order to promote the summer event, Rick, Marina, Nati, Laurent and myself recorded these songs.
I recenty found them on old CDs and am delighted we can share them with you. Enjoy! Special thanks to Miki Peled for creating the video files.
Miss you dear Rick Birman!
