Saturday Song: Unchained Melody

I often sang this song to my late husband Bill. After his strokes, whenever I hit the high note close to the end, he was always moved to tears. I hope my rendition of this song, as I sang it to Bill many times, moves you, too.

  1. Abbie–Your lovely rendition of “Unchained Melody” did bring tears to my eyes.  Your hitting the high notes along with much lower notes makes me wonder what your vocal range is.  Thanks for sharing the beautiful music–Alice and Willow
