A Note from the Creators of “Stand Up Proud”
When the Bluestone Sisters’ musical, PERFECT PICTURE, was produced in concert at Lincoln Center, the closing song, “The Four Freedoms” thrilled audiences. Over and over again, the songwriters heard how their song so perfectly resonated in today’s world. When asked to create a new anthem for freedom, the Sisters knew that their song about the 4 Freedoms was the perfect starting point. So, with additional lyrics and a riveting arrangement, “Stand Up Proud,” may claim its roots in the elegance of President Roosevelt’s words and the iconic paintings of Norman Rockwell for a nation at war, but its message is more timely than ever, illuminating the human need for these 4 essential freedoms in every century.
