Forever Your Dad – Leehom Wang 王力宏

Just finished listening to the new song from Leehom Wang which came out yesterday, it is a tear-jerker… The background to the song from Leehom:
“My high school buddy Dave Neufeglise reached out to me back in July 2018 with an e-mail that I’ll never forget. He’d been diagnosed with ALS, and had written a poem for his three young daughters, about some of the most important things he wanted them to know. Having three young children of my own, this poem went straight to my heart, and setting it to music (Dave likes country music, so I used a bit of a Nashville singing style) has been a great honor and a meaningful journey. Countless times during the process, I teared up in the studio, imagining those iconic images, one after another, that Dave writes about. They are fleeting rites of passage that might seem mundane at the time, yet when placed in the context of the song, the fatherly love embedded inside each is revealed and felt. A father’s love for his daughter is like nothing else in the world. The same goes for a song that truly comes from the heart.” – Wang Leehom
