This sheet music is virtually free because I don’t believe in capitalizing on a universal experience, nor do I want to take credit for another composer’s inspiration. If you’d like to donate to my freelance hustle, please feel free to send me a PayPal donation at heidijoosten.music @ gmail. Otherwise, I only ask two things:
1) You credit me or this tweet if you perform this work
2) You are registered to vote or are volunteering if you cannot vote
