Signature Songs

My awesome time as a wedding singer allowed me to hear, learn and perform a wonderful variety of first dance songs. I've sung ballads, rock hits, hip-hop, country, folk and even tunes in different languages based upon the specific requests of brides and grooms. But through it all, there are only a few at the top of my personal list. Below are my top three. I used Oleta Adams' prayerful tune, "Just Before I Go To Sleep" in my own wedding and the lyrics to "Make Me Whole" by Amel Larrieux are among the sweetest I've ever heard. Still, "When You Love Someone" is my all-time favorite and will most likely kick off the soundtrack of my husband and I renewing our vows some 20 years from now.

Just Before I Go To Sleep by Oleta Adams

Just before I go to sleep
I say a prayer that God will keep
the two that He's joined together
safe and more in love than ever.

When You Love Someone by Bryan Adams
SNIPPET: You'll deny the truth, believe a lie.
There'll be times that you'll believe you can really fly.
But your lonely nights have just begun
When you love someone.

Make Me Whole by Amel Larrieux
SNIPPET: Your eyes are the windows to heaven.
Your smile could heal a million souls.
Your love completes my existence.
You're the other half that makes me whole.

Awwwww. We played "Make Me Whole" during our ceremony. It was just a moment of silence while my husband & I held hands & looked into each other's eyes. I LOVE THAT SONG!!!
