Sweet man. Beautiful song.

If you watch American Idol then you already know the story of Chris Medina.

He proposed to his girlfriend of six years, Juliana Ramos, in the Starbucks where they both worked.  Two months before their wedding, she was in a horrible car accident that left her with severe brain damage.

Chris became her primary caregiver and took over round-the-clock care for Juliana.

He captured my heart with his voice and his story.  I was pulling for him to win the whole thing.

Unfortunately he didn't make it past Hollywood Week.

His story also touched song writer and record producer Rodney Jerkins who wrote a song especially for Chris to record.

It is available on iTunes and the proceeds from the sales of the record are going into a fund to help take care of Juliana.

It is a beautiful song.  Enjoy!
