2019 will be the 50th anniversary of the first moon landing.
To commemorate this event, author Phil Cummings and I have composed a song-cycle. The songs trace the big moments in the journey to explore space.
  1. Gagarin (Beyond Blue Sky) - in 1961 the Russian cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin became the first person to leave Earth's atmosphere and orbit the planet.
  2. Space Race (To Every Question) - in 1962 President Kennedy announced the goal to land man on the moon by the end of the decade.
  3. The Children of the World (July 1969) - the moon landing and its profound effect on the imaginations of children around the world.
  4. Apollo 11 (Homecoming) - the goal had been achieved, now for the tense drama of returning the three astronauts home safely.
