Green Shoe Studios in East Peoria, IL held a song writing contest online and for their small community a few months back. When they received a large manila envelope in the physical mail, they never would have guessed it was a song entry by a 96 year old man named Fred.
Fred lived with the love of his life Lorraine for 75 wonderful years. Sadly, she recently passed, and Fred hasn’t been able to get over her. After seeing the contest announced in the paper, he wrote this sweet song, titled Sweet Lorraine, to help his heart heal and mailed it in.
Green Shoe was so touched by the song, they helped Fred have the song professional produced. Now, the wonderful story is trending online.
