Since posting our video and recording of “Sing your Way Home” we have been asked to perform it for some special occasions over this past year. It is always well received and moving for us to sing. In gratitude for all who served and sacrificed, this is our way to remember. We hope it will be a way for you to remember this Memorial Day too:
This video is a tribute to those in military service who often travel so far away from home and give up so much.
The song speaks to us about the simple but profound joy of belonging, of having a place to return to at the end of the day or the end of a journey. It reminds us that, at the end of every battle, there is a resting place where we are accepted and loved and missed.
We hope it showcases the courage and the loving sacrifice of every soldier who now defends or has ever defended our country. In it, we also salute their families who gave up fathers, daughters, aunts, husbands, mothers, wives, uncles, and sons, for months or even years, some who lost them forever.
You will find no marching bands or 21-gun-salutes in this work. It is about something much deeper, more timeless, and much more intimate. It is about family and country. It is about the ties that bind. It is about love that endures great distances and much time apart. It is about home.
We sincerely hope you enjoy it. If you have family or friends who have served or lost someone who served in our armed forces, send them a link to our video. Consider adding a personal note of thanks to them for their hard work.
