Today (Feb 4), JJ Heller releases new music with “Wild and Precious Life.” The track was written by Heller, David Heller, and Andy Gullahorn. Heller shares on social media,
Dave and I wrote it with our good friend @andygullahorn with the hopes it would be a good fit for a father/daughter or mother/son dance at a wedding.
We started thinking about what that moment would be like, watching our child ready to start the next chapter, moving further into adulthood. I know it will be a swirl of emotions: pride, sadness, joy, love.
I’ve always loved the Mary Oliver poem: “Tell me, what do you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?” It struck me that these sentiments are perfect for a wedding, as families stand on the edge of what was and what is yet to come.
Marriage is a leap of faith… and so is letting your child grow up. But all we can do is take one step at a time and do our best to keep dancing through this one wild and precious life.
Heller began releasing monthly singles in April 2017 that together have amassed over 55 million combined streams to date (through August 2020). The songstress will continue to announce a brand-new song on the first Friday of each month.
