100 Years (Honoring Abdu’l-Baha) – Ali Youssefi

‘100 Years’ is a song by Ali Youssefi that pays homage to Abdu’l-Baha (son of the prophet founder of the Baha’i Faith), a figure whose life inspired and continues to inspire millions of people around the world and whose example and teachings of peace act as a shining lamp.

Ali Youssefi is a musician whose songs move the heart. You may be familiar with his global musical initiatives “Unite” or his song “Waves”.

Ali was also critical in helping us film Baha’i Blog Studio Sessions in Belgrade, Serbia (where he was living at the time), and from these sessions you can watch him singing “Jedinstvo (Unity)” in Serbian,  “Oh Mi Siervo (O My Servant)” in Spanish, and “Know Ye Not” in English. He also sings “Blessed Is the Spot” along with Katie and Deborah Eckert from our Studio Session recorded in Antigua and Barbuda.
