I’m so excited to share with you my second new release, a ballad called ‘Missing You’. The inspiration for this song came from different sources for me, my husband who travels quite often and also a close friend who passed on 2 years ago. Some friends who heard the song before it was released shared that it affected them very personally and reminded them of someone special in their lives. I’m so glad that the song has meaning for those who have heard it and has moved them in some way.
Once again, Eric Harper wields his talent in adding his beautiful guitar compositions to this piece. This song required great emotional expression in the vocals. I was hoping to capture that in the recording but found it quite challenging to bring out the deep emotions of the song at first. After reflecting on the words and with some encouragement from my producer, I was finally able to let go and allow the emotion to come through.
You may be surprised to hear that the lyrics are quite a departure from my previous songs that I’ve sung. I’ve enjoyed experimenting with different topics and the subject of love is one that inspires me. I would love to hear your thoughts and what memories the song evokes for you?
