Amidst the festivities and celebrations of the holidays and the New Year, we are reminded to take the time to pause, to reflect on the year passed, and to make resolutions for the year to come. Members of the Net Health team are resolving to give back more in their communities, to make healthy decisions, and to spend more time with family.
The employees of Net Health wanted to wish their clients the happiest of New Years, and what better way to do it than with this modern arrangement of Auld Lang Syne. This version, arranged, performed, and produced by Net Health employees, puts a folk-rock spin on a timeless holiday classic with sincere vocals, creative harmonies, and unique instrumentation.
