Sioux Falls, South Dakota has become like a second home for me, and The YMCA Classic benefitting after school programs is so very dear to my heart. It was the CEO of Sanford Health, Kelby Krabbenhoft, that donated so graciously to this cause and asked me to write and record a song for their very special children’s hospital.
After one visit to the hospital, the song just fell out and wrote itself. The kids were so inspiring, hopeful and happy. It reminded me of my visits to St. Jude Children’s Hospital in Memphis TN. I mean the feeling I got was so similar. I decided we should shoot a video of behind the scenes when the band was in the studio. This later turned into getting the children in the hospital at Sanford to sing on the record with me.
The kids were great, and when I tell you they got it right the first time I mean they nailed it. It was an extremely vivid and moving moment in my life. And to forever have it documented like we were able to was a great thing.
