Story Behind The Song: "A Love Like Yours"

This dispatch comes from Jonny:

This is a love song, but not in a traditional sense... It's not about one person - it's about appreciating a beautiful union of love from afar. I've seen a lot of friends fall in love, get engaged and married over the last few years and it's been such a powerful thing to witness.

I was at one of these weddings a couple years ago for my friends Jenny & Matt and was going through a rough break-up at the time. Seeing their love for each other gave me so much strength and hope that I'd find that same kind of thing one day. My buddy Mike was also at the wedding, was going through something similar, and we walked away wanting to give Jenny & Matt a gift and sum up how we were feeling afterwards, and this song was born. 

One of the most memorable moments of the ceremony was hearing an incredible vocal performance of "A Love That Will Never Grow Old" by the Chicago Gay Men's Chorus. I vividly remember their performance and was moved to tears. Not only was the arrangement flawless and the performance poignant, but I was overcome by emotion from the whole day and realized that the men on the altar delivering this music to everyone could not have the same experience as Jenny & Matt due to current state our laws here in the United States.

This pride month, we firmly stand with our LGBT brothers and sisters with the hope that they will all soon have the same rights and can enjoy a day as beautiful as Jenny & Matt's because all unions of love are better for us all.
