Music has always been a huge part of my life. For literally every concept, creative direction or storyline that has ever crossed my mind, I have imagined a soundtrack or tune to go along with it. A few years ago when I was directing a campaign for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals, we were scouting different floors of the renowned Texas Children's Hospital in Houston, Texas. As I looked into the eyes of kids who were battling all forms of disease and illness, and watched as doctors and nurses worked around the clock to help them... the following lyrics and melody came rushing into my mind. It was always my hope to produce the song and use it someday to help kids in need. My good friend Jenny Jordan Frogley agreed to sing the song for me. Jenny has perfect pitch and is an amazing talent. Her voice brought life, love, strength and hope to a very personal experience and a very powerful message. My good friend and brilliant composer and musician Ken Kruckenberg created the instrumentals, recorded Jenny and engineered and mixed the song. I will be forever grateful to both of you. You can check out Jenny Frogley on iTunes, etc... You can find Ken at www.sonicpathways.com, and you can take a listen to "Higher Love" here.
