From Janis: Early in this project, I was checking YouTube to see if anyone I didn’t know had created a version, and I ran across this. To be frank, it blew me away. Cheryl’s vocal is raw. It’s real. It’s honest. It’s all the things I try to be as a singer and writer. It’s all the things I yearn for when I encounter another artist’s work, staring me in the face from someone I didn’t even know. It took a bit of time to track her down, but here it is. Daring, present, and worthy.

Cheryl Wolder is a singer, songwriter, actor, writer, and visual artist. Passionate about the arts since childhood, she believes “The Arts can educate, unite, inspire and heal, and she loves being a part of that” – and, like Janis, she also loves to cook! 

(Janis Ian)

Better times, better times will come.
Better times, better times will come.
When this world learns to live as one,
oh, better times will come

When we greet each dawn without fear
knowing loved ones soon will be near
When the winds of war
cannot blow any more
Oh, better times will come


Though we live each day as our last
we know someday soon it will pass
We will dance, we will sing
in that never-ending spring
Oh, better times will come
