September of 2002, over 5 million people were touched by these songs.
Both songs celebrate not only the life & death of the heroes of 9/11/01,
but also those who gave the ultimate sacrifice prior to and after
9/11/01. Sandy’s collaboration with Doug Benson of Harvest Recording
Studio in Maryland and Kathy Foley of Link4U Productions in California
brought much comfort and healing to many and continue to do so.
Heroes” was inspired by the tragedy of 9/11/01 and also by her Father,
who had been a fireman when she was a child in Norwood, NY. “I
remember when the fire alarm would go off, my Dad would stop whatever he
was doing and go rushing out the door. On the floor by his side of the
bed, he would have his clothes laid out in such a way that enabled him
to get dressed at a moment’s notice in case he was called in the
middle of the night,” Sandy remembers. “I thought it was exciting! I
always felt that my Dad was a hero, but I never had any idea of the
danger involved,” she adds.
I was reviewing the just-recorded “Fallen Heroes” song in the
studio, I started to cry, recalling those days when my Dad was a
fireman. My Dad died many years ago when I was only 16. It was very
strange to realize only after I had written and recorded ‘Fallen
Heroes’ that I had basically written the song for my Father, even
though the original inspiration came from the 9/11/01 disaster,” Sandy
had never recorded a song that I myself had not written. But when Link4U
Productions requested that I record the song "Little Did She Know
She'd Kissed A Hero” written by K. Jackson, I was delighted,"
Sandy says. “I am so glad that I did, because the two songs have
brought a lot of healing and comfort to many."
these powerful songs, with their videos were released, the reaction was
overwhelming,” Joe Miller from Link4U Productions recalls. “I am
certain these tributes will continue to heal and comfort for many years
to come,” Miller adds. "It's an incredible feeling to know that
Sandy and I helped to comfort over five million people online during the
week of 9/11/02," says Ms. Foley. These tributes were also shared
across the country at special memorial events and services: military
bases, schools, churches, and other non-profit organizations.
