A Father's Love

As someone who has had several babies come into my life this year, more than any year since 1977, this tugs at my heartstrings with a vengeance. If you decide you want a copy of this, please buy it from his link rather than iTunes, so more of it goes to Noah's care.

Be sure to have two hankies before you watch this.

From the YouTube page:
Dear Friends and Supporters, on July 5th, 2012, my 11-month-old son, Noah, was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor. Please consider making a donation of support, as well as helping spread this link. The proceeds from your donation will go towards getting Noah the best care possible, as well as helping keep our family afloat while we focus on little Noah's treatment and comfort. Anyone who donates will receive a downloadable mp3 version of this rendition. Here is the link:
On Twitter, please include the hashtag #letitbefornoah.

A special thanks to Jesse, and everyone else at Cover Cows, for suggesting I record a charity song for Noah, as well as offering to waive any of their proceeds from the donations received. Thanks also to Cover Cows for handling the licensing with the Beatles' publisher, securing permission for us to make my rendition available on their site and iTunes. And thanks to Jeff Hall for letting me borrow his video camera (identical to mine), so I could shoot the performance from two angles at once.

My rendition of this song was recently the #1 single on iTunes in the Netherlands. Thank you SO MUCH, Holland!

And thanks to all of you so much for your friendship, generosity, support and efforts to help spread Noah's story.

Here are some links to some of the local, national and international media coverage of Noah and this video:



P.S. If you prefer, you can also buy this song from iTunes (with Apple taking 30% of the purchase price, as is their policy). Here's the iTunes link:
