A song of tribute and honor to a friend who finally ended a long battle with cancer and went to her eternal reward in heaven. Her faith and positive outlook on life was like a bright light that shined on all those who knew her. I want to take up that light and help others. That's the inspiration for this song. I hope it lifts the faith of all who listen. Lyrics are in the YouTube video.
Thanks, Torrey

A wonderful song, Torrey, thank you. On the right on the YouTube page was "Feel You In The Wind", so I listened to it, too, and enjoyed it.

Torrey,

I enjoyed the ebb and flow of this song - it sounds marvellously Beatlesque to me. The production is very well done and your vocal,especially on the chorus and harmonies, as good as I`ve come to expect from you.
A fine and uplifting tribute.

Robert

Very, very nice, Torrey! Great tribute to Dana. What a legacy to inspire such a powerful song. And the message is great.

As to the music, I love the "Beatle-esque" feel to it. Great arrangement, and your vocals really shine.

Thanks for sharing.

Blessings to you,

Steve

Beautiful song and tribute. I hear so many elements of the music that I've
loved all my life, ELO, Beatles, the production is among the best I've heard
here on this forum. Touching write, excellent job on this.

Torrey,

Beautiful. Good write - lyrically and especially melodically.

Strong vocal - one of your best. Excellent arrangement and instrument choices throughout. Nice orchestration - very Beatlesque.

Excellent mix. Great listen. Really well done!

Agree with all of this!! Strings/drums/vocals are very Beatle-esque (right out of the Sgt. Pepper era). This is wonderful music and a great tribute. Awesome!! Take care. Greg

Hello, Torrey

Very nice and beautiful tune!
And very Beatles-like.
The chord progression of the starting is wonderful.
Your vocals and chorus are excellent.
Strings of the ending are also effective.
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best regards.

Torrey,

What a wonderful tribute to and celebration of your friend's courage and strength. I found the lyrics very moving. In addition, the music, your arrangement, your singing and your production are outstanding. Everything sounded radio-ready professional to me.

As others before me have noted, there is definitely a Beatles vibe that threads its way throughout the composition and the arrangement. It suits the song incredibly well.

You and Ron have done a great job.

Regards to you both,
Noel
