about

Diamonds on the Street enlivens communities and the city with hope through the arts. We believe in its power to heal, unite and celebrate lives.

We collaborate with communities in need of hope by co-creating music, stories and drama so that they are healed and empowered to be a voice of hope to others.

We shine a spotlight on the intangible things that matter such as love, loss, joy, sorrow, brokenness and hope.

Through life’s adversities, we come face-to-face with our weaknesses and in the process, we find strength to overcome our challenges. It’s the way diamonds are made – put into high-temperature, high-pressure conditions just before the carbon starts to shine.

That’s the story all of us have. Born from ashes and refined by fire, we live to shine a light.

“As we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.” – Nelson Mandela

Track Name: S-M-I-L-E (Cover)
S-M-I-L-E
Oh you make the corners of my mouth defy gravity
S-M-I-L-E
This is how I'll say thank you for inspiring me

You may never get a million bucks for giving yourself away
But you're richer, Because of you, somebody’s smiling today
Gratitude is a 5 figure sum that's spelt S-M-I-L-E
It’s a priceless way for me to say thank you

S-M-I-L-E
Oh you make the corners of my mouth defy gravity
S-M-I-L-E
This is how I'll say thank you for inspiring me

You are probably a very busy person with many busy things to do
Thank you for putting somebody else’s needs into your to-do list
Oh you keep this old world spinning with your selfless expertise
Because of you, I know there's hope in humanity

S-M-I-L-E
Oh you make the corners of my mouth defy gravity
S-M-I-L-E
This is how I'll say thank you for inspiring me

Thank you for being so outstanding
In all that you do
Thank you for persevering
When no one sees what you do
You've got a heart of gold
And in case you didn't know
It's necessary that I spell it for you

S-M-I-L-E
Oh you make the corners of my mouth defy gravity
S-M-I-L-E
This is how I'll say thank you for inspiring me
Track Name: Go Where You Belong
I won't say goodbye
I won't say goodbye
For we only part to meet again
So I won't say goodbye

We have come so far
We’ve loved until it hurt
I see beauty in your scars

Written in your soul
Was a depth I longed to know
Took me years before you let me in

Go where you belong
Pack your memories in your suitcase
Wear a smile on your face
You will be strong
We're separate but not apart
Like a circle with no end
Our friendship will go
where you belong

There’s so much you say
With the silence in between us
How does time stand still and pass so fast

I knew it’ll come to this
Still in us I took a risk
What we've built won’t be put to waste
Track Name: Devoted
Sometimes, I wonder about life
Seasons come seasons go
Life so often deals a blow

Yet through wars and famines, wounds that tear
I’ve a special friend who turns to prayer

She shows me what it’s like to trust in Him
‘Cos His love overflows at the brim
Shines with grace and pace whenever she talks
With a faith that weathers the storms
But the most wonderful thing of all
is she’s wholly devoted to Him

She tells me life is not all rosy
But that God will show us
His mercies

He has fitted us with a purpose and plan
These are words of wisdom from my friend
Track Name: Ride On (Cover)
She was a regular girl next door
Chasing seconds that ticked on the wall
Building sandcastles of dreams

One day, she had a sudden knock on her door
The stranger came and started a war
Drowning her sandcastles within

All her crowns of yesterday
Broke and flew away
As the dawn broke and senses wake
These words sang in her head

Life is like a giant playground,
It’s a climb up or a ride down the slide
Your wind give me wings to fly… and ride

Enter pain, he crept by to visit her fall
Stripped her pride and dug up a knoll
Of loneliness and heartache

Then came hope, he came by and planted a trace
In her mind and birthed daily grace
Even when she couldn’t see

All her crowns of yesterday
Broke and flew away
As the dawn broke and senses wake
These words sang in her head

Life is like a giant playground,
It’s a climb up or a ride down the slide
Your wind give me wings to fly
The bully’s gone now, he was chased out
by a bigger and stronger Hero
who picked me up from the dusty sand
It’s no myth that we can stand
after the fall and ride on

Standing at the edge of unknown
Looking for a light
Waiting for a sign from above
To cross over and take flight

Life is like a giant playground,
It’s a climb up or a ride down the slide
Your wind give me wings to fly
The bully’s gone now, he was chased out
by a bigger and stronger Hero
who picked me up from the dusty sand
It’s no myth that we can stand
after the fall and ride on
Track Name: Live Today
You’re embarking on a journey
To find yourself
Paint the world with your sunshine, dance your way into love, put yourself in somebody’s shoes
You’ve been looking for the answers
To who you are
But all that soul-searchin’
Will still lead to nothin’
Unless you cross this bridge

So let go of familiar places
familiar faces today
The old is gone, the new is here to stay
Your fear is breaking, your dreams awaking
Make the climb today
Take a leap of faith and live your life today

You’re like family, it’s not easy
To let you go
There is grace in your speech, a bounce in your step, you smile and stand in the gap
Where the wind blows, you will follow
There’s no end to growth
And all that discoverin’
Has come to this one thing
Got to cross this bridge

Today
Just take one step of the way
Don’t worry
You’ll get there
Just take one step of the way
