K. Michelle has me about to cry in this mug. Today, just in time for Mother’s Day weekend, K. Michelle released a new single called “A Mother’s Prayer” dedicated to her son Chase. The visuals show a single mother working hard to raise her son until she, with the help of the boy’s father, send him off to college. Not only are the visuals beautifully done, the lyrics are very touching.
Last night I prayed on a fallen star
That you’d never have a broken heart
Though the world gets cold just remember who you are.
And I pray that you never have a rainy day and
No matter what the people say
Even when it hurts, it’ll be ok
The first time I saw you
I knew my life had changed
I would have been dead and gone
But I found purpose when I brought you home
And even though I’m not there to tuck you in everyday
I’m not far away.
This is what a mother prays
When I’m on the road
And can’t see your face
This music will never take your place
I love you Chase
I love my Chase
So sweet. Here’s what K. Michelle had to say about the song.
“My son Chase is the center of my universe. My fans and media don’t often see him in the spotlight with me and that is because I work really hard to keep his childhood as normal and carefree as possible. I think the most difficult part of my job is not being there each night to tuck my son in, but the sacrifices I make while working are all with his better interest in mind. Being a mother is the most challenging and rewarding part of my life, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.”
I can certainly respect K. Michelle keeping her son away from the limelight. People can be cruel. You can check out the video below. And then tell us what you think about the song, pass or play?
