A Beautiful Love Song...

I was contacted by Vincent James, a recording artist from the Philadelphia area. In addition to his singing career, he also writes and performs custom love songs through his website (usually for weddings, birthdays, anniversaries, etc--the perfect gift for that special occasion, by the way). Several years back he participated in a custom song giveaway with a local radio station. They would pick the winner, he would write the song, do a quick recording that same day and they would play it on the air the next day. Cool, right? What happened next is in his own words:

"I expected the winner would want a song for a wedding, birthday, anniversary or one of the usual situations. To my surprise the winner was a Mother who had recently given up her child for adoption...she wanted a song that she could play for her child someday should she ever meet/see them again. Upon hearing this story I was completely overwhelmed with emotion...went up to the piano and out came a song called "So Many Things" (from heaven above to my hands and voice). I recorded a very quick demo and they played on the air the next day (KROC in Rochester/MN). I felt so strongly about the song that I recorded a full production of it and put it on my nationally released CD "One More Night". To this day I get chills when I sit at the piano and play "So Many Things" wife and children and anyone who listens the song is emotionally moved when they hear it."

Please take a moment and listen.. TISSUE ALERT!

"So Many Things"
So many things that I wanna say
If by chance we meet again some day
I was alone and scared
Feeling trapped with no out
I hope you'll understand
I'll always love you...

So many things I wish I could do
Find a way to make it all up to you
I was alone and scared
Feeling trapped with no out
I hope you'll some day know
I wanted just the best for you...

As time goes by I think of you each day and night
My heart, my love my soul watching over you
There's nothing I can do
Pray each night your dreams come true..

So many things that I'm gonna lose
The hardest thing I ever had to do was choose
Cause you were the only one
Who ever was this close to me
I hope some day you'll know
I'll always love you

So many things that I wanna say...

Vincent, as an adoptee myself, your beautiful song brings me to tears. I have no doubt it was inspired from Heaven above. Thank you so very much for allowing me to share it with my wonderful readers and use it on Adoption Angles!

Please go over to Vincent's web site and let him know how awesome you think he is!!
