"My Name" by George Canyon

I'm not usually a fan of country music, but I found out about George Canyon's song, "My Name," through an online support network I'm involved with. Canyon is reported to have written the song for a friend coping with miscarriage and infant loss. The song is particularly powerful as it is written from a child's perspective. Though the lyrics have a slightly religious tone, I found the song and the video very moving--haunting, in fact. The only other song I am aware of that addresses this theme is Eric Clapton's, "Tears in Heaven," which I cannot bear to hear.

View the video online.

Alysse, a couple of songs that helped me through losing one daughter to stillbirth & one daughter to death due to complications of prematurity are: "Streets of Heaven" by Sherrie Austin; "Angels Among Us" by Alabama; and "Do What You Have to Do" by Sarah McLachlan.
