new song: The emptiness in my soul

Category: UK-blog

DeLeegteInMijnZiel F Hoes 200x200 ukThe Melodies from the heart foundation brings an new song on the loss of a child.
"The emptiness in my soul" tells the story of the sadness a father feels over the loss of his child. The music and text, written by Patrick Schouten, portrays the powerlessness, sadness and disbelief that a father can feel when faced with this most personal of crises.

We hope to offer all fathers who face a similar loss the comfort, recognition and remembrance that can eventually lead to discussion and closure.
"The emptiness in my soul" will be released in several languages, like Dutch, German and French. At the same time as the release of "The emptiness in my soul" the Dutch "De leegte in mijn ziel" is also released.
Watch the promo:
The complete song "The emptiness in my soul" is available from our website.
