This is another pleasant Youtube find. This time the video is young Amy Leerae from Minneapolis, Minnesota. Leerae wrote a song based off the works of British author Richard Adams. Although the song Watership Down was originally written in 2012, Leerae has since changed the lyrics.
This writer is hoping that Leerae will one day record this song. I agree with Youtube user Scott Welch, that a cello and violin as backing instruments could only enhance this song. To some this may be a song about finding the one you love but I find it is a message to find a place where you could be happy either physically or spiritually.
I’ve listened to Leerae’s other works and I believe she has a promising career ahead of her if theatre doesn’t work out. She could become a muse by inspiring others to find their Watership Down.
