I Can Be: A Meaningful Musical Video

July 9, 2015 | by Yaakov Shwekey

When you believe in me, I can be anything I want to be.

Almost 20 years ago my wife Jenine and her best friend started The Special Children's Center from a one-room apartment. Back then they were just teenagers with a dream to change the world, one child at a time. They felt a tremendous need for special children to have a place to flourish, to receive the care and attention they need, and to wrap it up in happiness. With the help of so many believers, that endeavor grew into a multi-faceted Center for more than 300 special children across three locations. While there is no end to the demand, there is also no end to their determination. While traveling and performing all over the world for the last 15 years I’ve seen with my own eyes the gift that music can give and the depths it can reach. The power is within every one of us… you can be anything, no matter what challenges you face. That is the magic of love, and the magic of this song. It is for you, the children and staff of the Center, and for you, all children around the world – each of you is precious, you can be anything. This song is for you.
