USBN Fine Arts – “Heroes” By David Bowie & Brian Eno

A stirring performance of “Heroes” on the world’s largest outdoor pipe organ by the Carol Williams Band, at Spreckels Organ Pavilion, Balboa Park, San Diego. (Dr. Williams is the Civic Organist for San Diego.) Inspired by the sight of David Bowie’s manager Tony Visconti embracing his girlfriend by the Berlin Wall, the song tells the story of two lovers, one from East and one from West Berlin. David Bowie’s performance of “Heroes” on June 6, 1987 at the German Reichstag in West Berlin was considered a catalyst to the eventual fall of the Berlin Wall. Following David Bowie’s death in January 2016, the German government thanked Bowie for “helping to bring down the Wall,” adding “you are now among Heroes.” A production of Universal Spirit Broadcasting Network, Rev. Father Rick Romero, OSF, Founder & Executive Producer. USBN is a chartered ministry of the Catholic Apostolic Church of Antioch, Right Rev. Mark Elliott Newman, OC,Presiding Bishop. Soli Deo Gloria.
