“Written for my close friend, Kenji Matsumoto, who continues to be such an inspiration to not only me, but those around him.  You would never guess that not many years ago, he was fighting for his life.  But with undying strength, belief and will to live, he persevered.  Today, Kenji runs a successful chain of restaurants in Japan and in Hawaii, soon to be LA.  Possible due only to his “Power to Believe”, he continues to touch lives wherever he goes.  Hopefully, this song will touch you….keep believing!”
