He Was Meant To Shine


Dan Drinker at Beach Haven, NJ

I wrote this song a few days ago and recorded it with my sister last night. It is just a demo. Soon, we hope to re-record it more professionally. Let us know what you think. To play the song click the pink circle below.

Will's voice reminds me of Nickelback in this recording. Emily has an amazing voice and the two really sound good together.

What a great song! I just discovered your site, my daughter has DS and is 10 months old, and our emotions are still really raw. I really enjoyed seeing some of your postings - Dan sure is shining on my computer! Thank you for helping me to continue to focus on my shining star!
You and Emily are awesome!

Great song Will. I have a fav song from http://www.signingtime.com/index.php
My son Tristan loves signing time and knows almost 100 signs that we have learned from their DVD's. I am working on a montage for my Tristan and am using their song "Shine" it doesn't sound anything like your song but what the song says is similar. Great job!! You have one interesting family. Lots of talent. Seriously you all should have your own reality TV show.

When I clicked on the play button, Gabe turned to me (the three of us are hanging out in the recroom, playing) and looked surprised. Then he started swaying to the music. So I think it is fair to say that he likes it! Actually, so does his parents!

Dan shines bright, Will. I think about Dan a lot these days because I see Gabriel growing up and well, I worry over his future. But thinking about Dan and all of you makes me feel more sure -- doing the best for Gabe has to be good enough. I want Gabe to shine, too, but moreso I want people to see Gabe first and foremost. That's what shines through the best -- the people that your brother and my son are...

Wow, I think I am in love. You know musicians always get the chicks, right Will? LOL!
Seriously, I loved it! Please blog when you record it professionally, otherwise I may have to boot leg it from your site. ;-)

Not many songs can choke me up, but this one definitely did it... well done to both of you.
