When people read manuscripts of The Road Show, one of the questions I got most was "Who's going to write the song?"
In the road show that the characters perform, there is a song that describes the Savior's love and healing power. It's an integral part of the book and is described as being an incredibly moving and beautiful song.
My first impluse was to just let readers imagine it in their heads. I was worried that trying to turn it into a real song people could hear would diminish it. What if it wasn't as good as it is supposed to be?
My friend, Elisa (aka Motherboard) insisted that I talk to her friend, Sherrie Shepherd. So glad I did! Sherrie is a gifted composer and incredible all-around musician.
I sent her a manuscript a few months ago. Working on an impossibly tight time frame, she reached up into heaven and pulled down a sublime and lovely melody. She has poured her heart and soul into this song and has been an absolute rock--persisting in the face of some serious challenges.
We'll hopefully have the song ready to hear and download next week so stay tuned. You won't want to miss it.
In the meantime, Sherrie did a review of my book today on her blog. Go check it out--and listen to her music while you are there.
