Oh, that's lovely! It has a Disney Movie sound that is so welcoming and appealing. Brava. You make your Dad proud.

Karen Soroca: "I believe that the photo on the CD was taken by my mother in the 1950s.  We were in Woodside, Queens, NY, where we lived.  My father looks so happy driving my brother, Lee (2 years old) and me (6 years old), in his Chevy. 
Dad, you will always be a part of me! "

 

My Father, Thatís My Father is an inspirational, theatrically-tinged pop vocal written and sung by Karen Soroca to honor all fathers and especially to honor her late father, Sol Soroca.  Karen says ďI was fortunate enough to have the most wonderful father for so many years.  His great example taught me how to live life fullyĒ.  Enjoy Karenís lyrical voice and the gentle rhythms of the quietly powerful piece enhanced by drums, guitar, piano and bass. 

The story behind the song description as described by artist/composer, Karen Soroca:

"This inspirational/theatrical pop song was written to honor my father, Sol Soroca, and all loving fathers.  I was fortunate enough to have the most wonderful father for so many years.  His great example taught me how to live life fully.

My father loved lyrical songs with beautiful melodies, whether it was an opera aria sung by Pavarotti or a tune crooned by Sinatra.  Keeping my fatherís preferences in mind, this song was originally written for voice, piano and guitar; however, after recording these 3 parts, I kept hearing a simple drum part which led to the addition of a bass and, finally, some additional percussion."
