"Devorah, aka, Firecracker, who appeared on NBC's "Wake Up" with Al Roker is a whirling dervish of musical energy and talent...surprising-----shocking to hear that much energy flow like a fire hose out of her diminutive 4'11" frame."

Biography

Devorah, aka “The Firecracker”, was born in Youngstown, Ohio, and is the youngest child of a family of accomplished, talented musicians. Devorah’s parents, Cantor Ernest and Frances Gottesman were regionally known, and dedicated their lives to their children and community. The experience of being their child developed a persistence and passion for music, and deeply carved her life path of honoring and sharing their legacy.

With two CDs (IRREPRESSIBLE and 5770), an Artist of the Year Award, and decades of performance experience, Devorah embarked upon a “Business by Bicycle Tour” from Seattle to Hollywood promoting her music. Devorah rode alone, stayed in Oregon and California State Parks. She was overwhelmed by the reaction and responses of radio stations and caring individuals along the way. “Twitter updates created an unforeseen momentum; interviews recorded to her Blackberry of people about their early childhood dreams were magnificent!”.

Devorah’s story captured the attention of veteran Los Angeles publicist, Roger Neal. Within a few months of their connecting, Devorah performed on NBC’s Wake Up with Al Roker, ushering in the celebration of Hanukkah. “Roger’s expertise is exactly what a dedicated indie, recording artist dreams about.”.

Lyrics

NO MORE GOODBYES

Written By: DEVORAH/QUIST

TWO RIGHTS MADE A WRONG
TURN DOWN THAT HOPELESS SONG
TOO TIRED TO TRY AGAIN
ONE HEART BREAKS THE OTHER MENDS

TWO DREAMS LEFT BEHIND
CAUGHT BY WINTER'S SCOLDING EYES
NEVER UNDERESTIMATE THE SOUL
TO YEARN FOR LOVE IN THE BITTER COLD

I WATCHED MY WHOLE WORLD CRUMBLE
THE STORM RAGED THROUGH THE NIGHT
WE'VE BEEN BEST FRIENDS AND LOVERS
SO WHY GOODBYE?

THE GIFT THAT WE SHARED
NONE OTHER CAN COMPARE
THE SPARKS OUR VOICES SOUND
ONCE TURNED YOUR HEAD AROUND

I WATCHED YOUR WHOLE WORLD CRUMBLE
THE STORM RAGED THROUGH THE NIGHT
WE'VE BEEN BEST FRIENDS AND LOVERS
SO WHY GOODBYE?

I'M NOT AFRAID OF FALLING DOWN
FALLING DOWN

WE STOOD THERE IN THE RUBBLE
THE STORM RAGED THROUGH THE NIGHT
WE LOOKED INTO EACHOTHER
NO MORE GOODBYES

I SEE YOU SMILING BACK AT ME...

WAKE UP (FOR THE CHILDREN)

Written By: DEVORAH

I HAVE WATCHED THE WORLD WITH MY HEART
I HAVE FALLEN DOWN
SINGLE MINDED SHOUTING AND SAVORING DEMISE
I HAVE WATCHED YOU PLEASURE FROM YOUR LIES

SOMEBODY CHANGED THE RULES WHILE WE WERE DEEP IN SLUMBER
HOPING WE MIGHT DIE BEING FOOLED

SOUND THE ALARM
WAKE UP UNARMED
WAKE WAKE UP
SOUND THE ALARM
WAKE UP UNHARMED
BUT WAKE UP
FOR THE CHILDREN

I HAVE HEARD THAT SOME THINGS MIGHT CHANGE
WHEN I READ THE NEWS
DANCING DOWN THE FIRE ESCAPE
WITH YOUR LATEST DISTRACTION
DROWNING ALL YOUR DREAMS INTENTIONALLY

SOMEBODY CHANGED THE RULES WHILE WE WERE DEEP IN SLUMBER
HOPING WE MIGHT DIE BEING FOOLED

SOUND THE ALARM
WAKE UP UNARMED
WAKE WAKE UP
SOUND THE ALARM
WAKE UP UNHARMED
BUT WAKE UP FOR THE CHILDREN

POLITICIANS CORPORATIONS
PEOPLE OF THE WORLD
WAKE UP

I HAVE LEFT THIS HEART ON THE FLOOR
I HAVE LEARNED TO FLY
DIG DOWN DEEP AND FIND THE ENDLESS WELL OF LOVE
THE TREASURE IS IN THE HEART OF HUMANITY

SOUND THE ALARM
WAKE UP UNARMED
WAKE WAKE UP
SOUND THE ALARM
WAKE UP UNHARMED
BUT WAKE UP
FOR THE CHILDREN
WAKE UP FOR THE WORLD

POCKET OF GOLD

Written By: DEVORAH

LOVE JOINS OUR HEARTS
MONEY CAN ONLY BUY YOU FUN

OOH YEAH
LET'S GET THE PARTY STARTED
WELCOME PEOPLE TO THE PLANET EARTH
CAN YOU REMEBER WHEN YOU PLAYED 'TIL THE SUN WENT DOWN?
SO JUMP RIGHT UP
AND SING ALONG WITH ME

I'VE GOT THIS POCKET OF GOLD
IN MY EYES
I CAN NOT HELP
THAT I SHINE FROM INSIDE
I'VE GOT THIS POCKET OF GOLD
HEY HEY HEY

OOH YEAH
DON'T EVEN TRY TO THINK ABOUT IT
IGNITE YOUR WORLD IN ENDLESS POSSIBILITIES
WE WERE BORN FOR A LIFE OF LOVE AND LAUGHTER
SO JUMP RIGHT UP AND SING ALONG WITH ME

I'VE GOT THIS POCKET OF GOLD
IN MY EYES
I CAN NOT HELP THAT I SHINE FROM INSIDE
I'VE GOT THIS POCKET OF GOLD
HEY HEY HEY

I AM HOME

Written By: DEVORAH

SIRIUS CAME TO CLAIM MY HEART
HE TOOK IT STEALTHILY
I AWOKE TO FIND MYSELF
IN A STATE OF PERFECT PEACE

HOW DID I LET MY ARMS RELEASE
THE FEARS I'VE HELD SO LONG?
WHAT IF THE ANSWERS TO YOUR QUESTION
BRING YOU HOME

SIRIUS I HAVE MADE MY BED
THERE'S NO ONE LEFT TO BLAME
FOR THINGS I CAN NOT SAY TO YOU
THESE THINGS REMAIN THE SAME

HOW WILL YOU OPEN UP THE DOORS
THAT CLOSED SO LONG AGO
WHAT IF THE ANSWERS TO YOUR QUESTIONS
BRING YOU HOME

HOME TO A TRUSTING HEART
THAT SEES YOU FLYING FREE
HOME TO A NEW WAY OF BEING
LOVING UNCONDITIONALLY

I OPEN MY ARMS OPEN MY HEART
WHEN HE CALLS MY NAME
THE BRIGHTEST STAR SPEAKS TO MY HEART
AND MY LIFE'S FOREVER CHANGED
FOREVER

HOME TO A TRUSTING HEART
THAT SEES YOU FLYING FREE
HOME TO A NEW WAY OF BEING
LOVING UNCONDITIONALLY

I AM HOME
SIRIUS I AM HOME
THE BRIGHTEST STAR
SPEAKS TO MY HEART SIRIUS
I AM HOME

UNCONDITIONALLY
SIRIUS
I AM HOME
