November of 2013: Thomas, a man that was given only weeks to live, had lyric’s and a melody that he had written when nearing the end of his life. For his final wish, he had requested of The Southern California Hospice Foundation his tune and words be recorded.
I was called and asked by the foundation if I would consider making this happen. They told me all they had was a YouTube video of Thomas singing to the nurses.
Knowing I had only two weeks to accomplish this “no failure” task, I agreed. Trying to arrange the tune so it had more than a melody was my goal. It was decided that Thomas would sing, never having recorded anything in the past.
Everything was readied for the two week time-line. Thomas was brought by ambulance to the LA studio, and in one afternoon his final wish was granted!
This was a gift for Thomas, and a gift for everyone involved.
