Another gripping musical moment comes from singer/songwriter Valerie Shearman’s new single, “She's Everybody's Daughter.”
The song title refers to her own mother's story and is relatable to so many other stories of missing women. The searing and poignant relating of her mother’s tragedy is a heavy load the lady’s been carrying for many years and finally decided to lay down her burden in song.
“Through the years I never forgot my mother that was missing then found. I couldn’t help but hear this story over so many times in the news. I felt I had to get her story out. I felt passionate to write a song that was deep in my soul about this terrible but true fact that women go missing and sometimes never found.
That was the seed I started with 10 years ago and I finally found the courage to bring out her story, hidden for so long. I hope it brings fresh awareness to this situation where thousands of women just disappear and are never found. There must be a way to stop this ongoing tragedy.”
The searing, streetwise rocker was written by Valerie Shearman, Blair Garrison and Mauro Giammarco, and performed by Valerie Shearman (vocals), Blair Garrison (bass and backup vocals), Daniel Addison (lead guitar), George Sandler on drums, backup vocals by John Johnson.
