With the birth of our first child, William, we both knew that we wanted to write a song that would hopefully live in the hearts of many parents as a tribute to the treasure it is to be a parent. Lisa brought such beautiful emotion to the song within her voice and we could not be more thrilled with how this piece has turned out. She has been wonderful to work with.”
Lisa shared these words about her enthusiasm to the song, the charity, and her anticipation of becoming a new mother. “I am so thrilled and honored to be involved in this project for St Jude. The song has a special resonance with me as I am about to embark on the wonderful journey into motherhood. We are expecting our little girl in September and I cannot wait to hold her and sing this beautiful lullaby to her.”
