Another year, another birthday and for the last few special “events” in my dad’s life, I’ve had this idea that it would be really fun to sing “Hallelujah”, one of my his favourite songs! And I am NOT a singer. Not. At. All! That is not the intent here, believe me! I was hoping to do it with a little help from my kids and my wife. Unfortunately my wife couldn’t squeeze this one into her schedule, which is really too bad because I’ve heard her sing it and she nails it! Nonetheless, the kids and I put it together and although I couldn’t be happier with the end result, I was very surprised by how much simply singing it impacted me. Having thoughts of my dad in my head and wanting to do the best job of it that I could – for him – I was suddenly overflowing with emotions.
I hope that anyone who sees it, enjoys it, but mostly, I hope my dad does.
Happy Birthday Old Man. I love you.
