I wear many hats and one of them lands me at Sevens-Gate Recording Studio daily.
While I get to hear many talented musicians it's not often that a song touches me so deeply that I think the world needs to hear it. Not only hear it but listen closely to the words.
‘Love Will Change’ was released on September 26th and I think you will find it to be one the most compassionate songs of the year. Tonia Hughes Kendrick did an incredibly moving performance of the song that was written and produced by Jordan Erdman.
The music is so touching and the message Jordan is conveying is to change the lives of children – one child at a time.
The project started out small. Jordan’s friend Angelique Dove Hatch has four children, three of them adopted. She made a YouTube video to showcase the adoption process and their lives after moving to their forever home with the Hatches. Jordan set out to write her a song that she could post without running the risk of copyright violation.
Sitting at the piano surrounded by photos of orphaned children, Jordan wrote ‘Love Will Change.’ He brought Tonia Hughes in to sing the vocals and added a gospel choir featuring Billy Steele, Tonia Hughes, David Hurst, Sara Lucille Renner, Darlene Miller, NeeCee Spearman-Davis and the Land of Lakes Choirboys directed by Aaron Carpenter.
Piano and B3 organ was done by Tommy Barbarella, bass players Tony Axtell, drums Brian Kendrick, violin and cello Derek Nakamoto.
Erdman sent the song to L.A. to be mixed by Rob Chiarelli and then on to Nashville to be master by John Mayfield. Recording and engineering was done by Jordan and Adam Colt at Sevens-Gate Recording Studio, Hudson, WI.
Honestly, I believe that this song should open an awards show! I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
