Grace is an album of chants and prayers that come from the Yoga tradition. Agatha Carubia, now offers her own voice of devotion. "Grace" is a natural outpouring of her "Heart-Based Singing" technique, and from her life as a Yogi. Her inspiration to record came after years of studying ancient texts, and practicing Tantric Yoga, which included Neelakantha deep meditation and daily chanting. Being a singer and composer, the traditional chants and verses provided fertile ground for musical expansion, composition and arrangement. This contribution is meant to bring the listener into a state of meditation and peace.

In advanced studies in Blue Throat Yoga, we learned and practiced this chant as part

Chants and meanings
" There was a teacher named Agatha Danoff (Carubia) who was my vocal teacher and music teacher at the Music Academy of the West. It was very fancy and I didn't come from any money … and she always used to give me a break on my lessons. I owe her a lot of credit and I appreciate that she looked out for me when I didn't have enough money to pay."
- Katy Perry on Education
Katy Perry has "teamed with Staples to "Make Roar Happen" by raising money for teachers through DonorsChoose.org...In the end, the $1 million campaign will help fund supplies for thousands of classrooms in the cities the star's Prismatic World Tour visits."
