Movie Soundtrack Inclusion
one little finger
acted in by over 80 children and adults with disabilities
"I could not be more proud of what this important International film will accomplish. To have words I have written and recorded, in my own voice, included among voices I've long admired, like Julian Lennon & Quincy Jones, the soundtrack of One Little Finger movie will perpetuate a "can do" message of inspiration, in music. That all this debuted at the United Nations too is a dream come true!" ~ Colette O'Connor
Colette was invited to write her feelings about humanity and individual potential, and then she recorded them for inclusion in the film soundtrack:
Bonus Track 25: Voices of the People From Around The World, that includes words by Julian Lennon.
An incredibly revealing and affirming film that honestly depicts humanity; with great care and focus on what is and what can be! #OneLittleFinger
Colette O’Connor’s album – I Think I Am – Voted in the top 15 CD's of the Year 2016. Nominated CD of the Year, Pulse Magazine and Worcester Music Awards.
Colette is a visionary who sings because she must and because she does, all who hear her are filled with light and wonder. - Debra Andersen, Radio Programmer/Host "The Wimmin's Show" KZUM 89.3 FM-HD, Lincoln NE.
On "Ground to Dust" THIS is a real thinking persons song. There is deep, deep meaning here. Almost like an Al Stewart song: just when you think you've found the center, there lies yet another layer. - Daniel Stratton, The Wanderer, Independent Radio Host
I Think I AM is an exemplar of what good acoustic music should be in this time of same-sounding pop hits. Her original songs—from the pragmatically philosophic title track to the delightful story of the “People on the Porch”—resonate with both joy and insight, and deliver a pleasing vocal style combined with some outstanding musicianship. There are sixteen tracks in all, and every one is fashioned with both warmth and wit, evoking the poetic spirit of this talented artist. Songs like “Penny in the Pond,” “Been There Done That,” “Hide and Seek,” “Huckleberry Finn,” and the rest are worth listening to again and again. As a songwriter, O’Connor deftly crafts words, matches them with original melodies, and then infuses them with her own personality, creating something very special. -Nick Noble, host of THE FOLK REVIVAL on NPR station, WICN (Worcester Public Radio).
