"We all come from family, each and every one of us. Our immediate family members are often close to us, and we keep them near and dear.
And there are others who, while not immediate family members to us, show us love and caring throughout our lives as though they were immediate family members.
“Song For My Family” is a celebration of family, and is a song for all of our families. Let us keep family as a foundation of our lives, and allow the love that we receive from family to keep us filled with a joyful, loving spirit to share with each other."
Enjoy the new release titled "Song for My Family" by Jerome Lee at this CD Baby link -
