(You will always be with us)
Marion then had the idea that it would be great if there were more songs on this subject, especially for the loss of a child. The reactions that came in after the release of You will always be with us strengthened this idea and so began the Melodies from the Heart Foundation.
It was clear from the outset that You will always be with us required a female vocal and renowned Dutch singer Wieteke van Dort was asked to take on the task, which she did gladly. The song was recorded in The Box Studios in Katwijk and produced by Tom Pearce of Practical Music. Everyone involved donated their time and their talent to the recording.
It became a very intense and sensitive song about a child who barely had the chance to see and feel
the world it was born into.
