I Love You
by Teresa Jennings
This extremely sweet little song falls into the category of "there when you need it." We can see it being obviously used for Mother's Day, Father's Day, Grandparents' Day, Valentine's Day, and so on. You can also customize the lyrics for other occasions to express "we love you" or "we miss you."
The melody accommodates the goal of simplicity nicely, and we have included a lush and lovely string orchestration on the recording to go with it. The piano part is quite simple though, so you could definitely play this live, too.
You will note on the recording that we selected a soloist for the ending of the piece. You can do this as well, or just let everyone continue singing.
To really add to the performance, consider using sign language for some or all of the words. We have provided illustrations of the signs below.
