|Here’s something to warm your heart–the story of a young girl who was bullied by her classmates, and the young men who stepped forward to prevent it. If you haven’t heard the story (or even if you have!) take five minutes to watch the video–it will make your day.||
“Angels in Disguise”
The new song this time is called “Only Love,” written for solo voice in a medium range. The title of the song is an imperative, much like the commandments the Savior said are the greatest in the law: love God and love His children. Love is a choice. If it were not so, how could the Lord command us to do it? And how different would the world be if each one of us would only choose to love, to act in accordance with these two great commandments in every situation, in every moment of our lives?
The lyrics were co-written with my friend Josh Weed. He and his lovely wife Laurel came all the way from Seattle one weekend so Josh could sing the demo track. When he stepped into my little makeshift studio he had no idea what a relentless taskmaster I turn into under headphones, but he was a good sport about it, and did a great job on the vocals. If you’d like to record your own version of this song, check out Josh’s post here for details on a contest he’s hosting. 😉
