    Statue Of Liberty Reopens With A 4th Of July Song - "Mother Of Exile" Donny Stew's city song "Mother Of Exile for New York City, was written for the 4TH of July reopening of the Statue of Liberty after the Super Storm Sandy debacle. The song, a catchy anthem is dedicated to the historic American tradition of welcoming immigrants to our shores with open arms. The song includes lyrics from the legendary Emma Lazarus poem: "Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free" The poem is on a bronze plaque in the pedestal of the Statue of Liberty. The music video features the Donny Stew Band along with an original animated Statue of Liberty singing and dancing to the song with a backdrop of 4th of July celebrations in the NY harbor. By a twist of fate, Stew's NYC rehearsal studio below the West Beth Theatre in Greenwich Village was also flooded out during the Super Storm Sandy. "We lost everything. It took us till now to recover." Donny Stew’s City Songs & Videos released to date: 2013 "Indy Indy Indeed," released for this years 2013 Indianapolis 500 Memorial Day Race. 2010 anthem for Dallas called "Texas Big" for the Dallas Cowboy’s owner Jerry Jones hosting the superbowl. 2011 "59 Miles to Jacksonville," a song that appeared in Drew Barrymore's Hollywood Roller Derby movie "Whip It." 2012 Halloween release, "La Llorona - Ghost of Santa Fe" for a Latin American female ghost features original animated 3D ghost characters. 2013 "St. Louis Brew" 2013 "Denver Christine" 2013 "Sedona" "Seeing my "59 Miles to Jacksonville," song and name up in lights in Drew Barrymore's Roller Derby movie "Whip It," was the genesis for the “Donny Stew City Songs project," said Donny. "It seemed to me that only the big city's like N.Y., L.A. and Chicago get the great city songs.” “My city songs unveil many unknown city legends, people, places, and events, both good and bad. I decided to have a special release for each city with a song and video in the appropriate genre. I’ve toured the cities I write about and personally shot city footage with my Camera.” "As my city song project progressed, the length of the songs and videos varied. Some songs and videos were the standard three minutes or so, while other cities got multiple songs and some regional cities have been joined together to form city rock operas.”
