Personalized Songs

Personalized songs are here – just in time for the holidays!

Me, chatting about personalized songs on Twitter

But wait, you say – “Carla, I didn’t know you recorded personalized songs!”

Well, HA! – that makes two of us! I suppose that’s not entirely true, as I have written my share of personalized songs for the Songs of Love charity for children with chronic and terminal illnesses. But I had no idea that regular folks would be interested in having a personalized song written for them. Turns out that I was wrong.

Last week I was commissioned to write a song for a young girl’s Bat Mitzvah, and it came out beautifully. I hadn’t even met the young lady, and I even I moved to tears while writing this song. Her father had interviewed other members of the family to provide a comprehensive bio of what the girl of honor would like, and it was my job to put the sentiments into a song. The resulting song is titled “She Loves Her Family”, and I’ll be uploading a clip soon.

In addition to all of the information that was given to me, it was also requested that it be written to the tune of Taylor Swift’s tune “You Belong With Me”. It was a rush request, so I got it done in TWO DAYS! Her family had also commissioned a photo montage from a videographer, which was what the personalized song accompanied, and I can only imagine the laughter and tears that this presentation caused. It’s the kind of event that makes everyone feel all warm inside.

I consider it a great honor to write music for your special day, and I look forward to writing more personalized songs. So keep me in mind, as personalized songs can be commissioned for every occasion, such as:

* Wedding Anniversary
* Mother’s/Father’s Day
* Engagement
* Bar/Bat Mitzvah & Sweet Sixteen
* Baby’s First Lullaby
* Personalized Children’s Song
* Wedding
* Valentine’s Day
* Retirement
* Birthday
* Memorial
* Anything else you can think of!

If you’re interested in having a personalized song written, send an email via my contact form, and I’ll respond asap.

Happy Holidays!
