Last fall, Nili had the pleasure of singing for the 10th anniversary gala of an organization close to her heart: The Down Syndrome Clinic at Boston's Mass General Hospital. She was honored to accompany Graham Campbell, a talented young man who happens to have Down Syndrome. Graham chose the song, which yearns for and celebrates a world in which love, compassion and inclusion guide humanity to a higher existence. Watch video here
