Watching the news unfold about the poor kids getting shot at school in Connicticut I felt compelled to compose this tune in tribute. I hope you enjoy it !
Real tracks used, Piano pop waltz, bass pop waltz, Reason 4 Miroslav Strings & choir.

That's really a nice tune.
But I would not associate it with a tragedy like in Newtown.
These poor kids had no guardian angels either.

Very fitting. I feel so sad for those families and the community and the world in general over these shootings.

A very heart felt tribute that was extremely well done.

Or as I usually say “my favorite accordionist does it again”!
