Such a beautiful song. Brought tears to my eyes and an ache in my heart. I brought my New Year watching inspirational videos on youtube. One that wore out is the one by Baby Kaely who is a 7 year old rapper. She and her father wrote the following song as a tribute song for the kids affected by the Sandy Hook shooting. The music video for “Heaven” was directed and produced by Will.i.am and is available for purchase on iTunes for which all proceeds are intended to go to building 20 playgrounds in 20 cities across the country in the memory of the 20 children who are now in heaven.
I will be playing this for my Grade 7 Tenor Horn exam. This is obviously not the played on the same instrument, but is the same piece. First time I've heard the original version of it - it's actually a bit slower than I play it.
