David Roth Debuts An Anthem For People With Disabilities, at Brewster Ladies Library – Video

BREWSTER – Here is an anthem for people with disabilities, “My Voice Matters.” Since 2005, professional singer/songwriter David Roth has been running what he calls a “Full Moon Open Mic” four or five times a year in Brewster, and Thursday he opened the show with this new original song.

Each open mic collects donations for a different charity, said Roth. Since 2005, the open mics have raised $12,231 for various Cape charities, he said. On Thursday, $231 was raised for Wild Care Cape Cod, he said.

Roth, of Orleans, was the first of about 21 acts to perform for in the two hour open mic in front of a packed room in the Brewster Ladies Library. Among the many surprises in the eclectic acts at the open mic, including storytellers and poets, were a group of women drummers who called themselves the “Drummah Queens.”

At one point a librarian, standing outside the closed doors of the room where the show was held, commented that she enjoyed hearing the drumming in the library.

“You never know what you’re going to get,” said Roth by phone on the day after the show. As a professional singer he travels often, and he was in Little Rock, Arkansas for the opening of a one-act play, for which he wrote the music.

Roth has a new CD, his 13th, coming out soon, called, “So Far, So Good.” It will be available soon at David Roth Music.

This particular song, written in December with a group of 75 people at a conference for people with disabilities, was written as a collaboration to create “an anthem for people with disabilities,” said Roth. It will be on his next CD, he said.
