Sang this on Mother's Day May 8 2011 at my church with my friends Dick, Alan and Harry, with Dave on piano. I posted this up so my mom can see it. She lives far away and missed the service. Ain't YouTube just great for stuff like that?
So, I googled songs about mothers when they asked me to perform and Paul Simon's Loves Me Like A Rock came up in the middle of a bunch of corny old songs- and I do mean corny! Then I called Dave and asked him if we could have the boys back me on it and he came up with such a great arrangement in 2 days! We rehearsed it a few times on Wednesday and on Sunday we just went for it.
I was a little nervous as we only ran it a few times, but I knew the song ok by then, having listened to it over again from the video online. I only messed up one word- two times in the song- ugh! I'll let you figure out which... But the sentiment was there.
Which is, to sing to my mother how much I appreciate to no end that my mom loves me and for having supported this crazy dream of mine for so long- even when she really didn't want to. It is not easy for an artist's parent to see them through their never-ending roller-coaster ride of fast failures and even shorter successes. My mom is definitely amazing!
Anyway, I ramble. Please enjoy this video we made with absolute love.
