You cannot imagine how thrilled I was a couple of years ago when the illustrious Tracy Newman heard me read my poem, I Believe, at an open mic, and asked if she could put it to music.
Could she?! OMG, does a bear… well, you know. I jumped at the opportunity.
Tracy Newman is all over YouTube, from several old folk songs from a PBS show to an appearance on Jonny Carson and more recent appearances with her band, Tracy Newman and the reinforcements. Before I Die is hilarious.
Recently, I got a bee in my bonnet to share our song with the world. (Our song! I love how that sounds.) She was incredibly gracious when I asked if I could use the audio file she sent me. So, I took a stab at putting her lovely guitar and voice to some of my favorite home videos, and here's the result. It's my first video, so go easy on me.
