Sandy Hook Tribute song "The Suns Shines In Heaven" is a heartfelt and haunting meditation on the Newtown shooting tragedy that riveted the nation. The song is driven by a piano that provides soothing comfort and which stands in a successful contrast to the composition’s thoughtful and inspiring lyrics. Marissa Angelina Wendt provides the vocals in a manner which belies her youthful age. Ultimately the song is one of perseverance and triumph. Through trials we face the harsh realities of this world. Through art and the very process of creation we face our fears, hold a mirror to ourselves and seek to inspire and rise above. This song succeeds on all fronts and shows what beautiful art can be wrought from tribulation and, ultimately, the belief in our abilities to move above our circumstances. Passion and perseverance put to poetry and piano. Simply beautiful and utterly haunting all at once.In addition to honoring the 26 affected Newtown families, the song hopes to inspire other parents that may have lost a child. Therefore this song could be a nice soundtrack piece for memorial services.This song is also great for a choir looking for a beautiful retrospective meaningful piece with melodic soaring harmonies.Proceeds from this song will go to support the My Sandy Hook Family Foundation, the only charity that gives 100% of donations directly to the 26 Sandy Hook families.
