The soul crashing pop song “To my dad” brings our attention back to the great song-writing skills of Beatrice Dis and her team of arrangers and producers. With this song Beatrice celebrates fighters of long-term illnesses like cancer who are able to instil courage and strength to those around them. Her late father is depicted as one of the modern super heroes: a relentless fighter with strong faith and deep positivity. A lover of life who brought joy to his family even during the darkest period of his life.
The song debuted live in a charity event for Cancer Research UK, an opportunity that was deeply wanted by Beatrice. It was not just the best atmosphere to present such an intimate song, but also a stage where she could speak openly and share her experience. Cancer can be a very scary word, but she has learned that is mostly a journey: it’s a physical and emotional journey that involves the entire family and it needs to be faced all together.
“To my dad” gives voice to a daughter in pain, covered in fears and totally amazed by her dad’s strength. The song was released on the year anniversary of his passing and has been touching hearts ever since.
If you listen to any new song today, it needs to be this.
