FAQ: Why won’t Chavah play the next song?

Image
A lot of folks have written in, asking why Chavah won’t play the next song. Q. “Chavah plays a song, then when the song ends, I don’t hear anything. What’s wrong?”A. If you’re on a desktop or laptop, reboot. If you’re on a mobile device like an iPhone, iPad, or Android phone, use the Chavah app: Chavah for iOS, or Chavah for Android.Q. I’m using the Chavah app, but it still only plays 1 song, then stops.A. On some mobile devices, like iPhone, Chavah must be in the foreground (not in the background) and your screen must be on.The problem isn’t with Chavah, but the device you’re using to listen. Chavah uses web standards to play audio, meaning it works fine on laptops, desktops, Windows, Mac, Linux. However, some mobile devices, like Apple iPhones, impose superficial imitations on web-based audio. For example, as of iOS 12, Apple has imposed a battery-saving (but app-breaking) “feature” that prevents web-based apps, like Chavah, from running in the background. Thus, as of iOS 12, for Ch…

Image
Shalom Chavah fans,New music rollout on Chavah, contributed by the artist herself:Sarah and her husband Andy live in Melbourne, Florida.  They have three children.  Sarah is a worship leader, singer/songwriter and musician.  She has always loved to sing and is a classically trained vocalist, as well as a piano / keyboard player. During college, she took a songwriting class and had a desire to write her own music.  It wasn't until years later that her songwriting developed.  The first song, You Are (Unfailing Love), began as a prayer for emotional and physical healing.   After walking through a long season of waiting and learning to surrender her gifts and talents to the Lord, Sarah began writing more songs.  Be Still was inspired by a friend who was battling cancer, and became a source of strength and encouragement for others who were facing similar struggles. Seeing how this music could impact lives, Sarah's desire was to record her music to share with others. Come Away is he…

She longs to comfort others with the comfort she, herself has received of G-d. Her music can be described as folky/adult contemporary with a Hebraic flare, and her voice has been compared to Natalie Merchant, Patsy Cline, Christine Dente, and Joni Mitchell.
