The Most Important Five Minutes and Thirty-Nine Seconds You Will Spend Today

"An American Prayer" was born of the genius of Dave Stewart (formerly of the Eurythmics). Press "play" and find out for yourself. Here is what another genius, Bob Dylan, had to say about Stewart:
“Captain Dave is a dreamer and a fearless innovator, a visionary of high order, very delicately tractable on the surface but beneath that, he's a slamming, thumping, battering ram, very mystical but rational and sensitive when it comes to the hot irons of art forms. An explosive musician, deft guitar player, innately recognizes the genius in other people and puts it into play without being manipulative. With him, there's mercifully no reality to yesterday. He is incredibly gracious and soulful, can command the ship and steer the course, dragger, trawler or man of war, Captain Dave.
