Story telling in song, resplendent with strings and soft vocals. Unicorn Giraffe is an enchanting story of a giraffe, unlike all the others, who finds a friend by believing in himself.
The song inspired Laura to create a book with her friend, digital creation artist Teddi Rutschman.

Once upon a time in a distant land, there lived a Unicorn Giraffe
He was the only one of his kind that he knew of, he was the only one of his kind that he could see, He was a lonely he.
He would graze in meadows date palm leaves he would eat, then in the afternoon when it was hot, he'd go down to the stream, He'd go down to the stream, Child of the river.
Yet at night, when the stars burned bright, he would sit, he would sit beneath the moon and he sang a sad little song that went like this, He's sing, send a friend to join me send a friend to know me, send a friend along, send a friend along.
And All the birds they echoed in his wish as did the frogs, the mice and the silver fish, they sang, glubb, glubb, ribbit, Iiee, la tweet.
Well the days seem to spin by although he was lonesome he ceased to cry, rather he sang a different tune, beneath the hopeful gentle moon.
And it came to pass, but not too soon, beneath this hopeful, gentle moon there came another giraffe, he didn't have a unicorn, that was alright, for it's what you are inside, it's what you are inside not what you look like and together they sang.
There's a light that shines within me, may it always be quite near, it's my best and truest friend then there's you my dear.
