NEW RELEASE: Rainbow Baby
Thanks for visiting BeardedPiano.com, and I’m excited to announce my brand-new song and video, Rainbow Baby. I’ve been working hard on this project for months, and it’s a very special one to me. I hope you’ll love it as much as I do.
A Rainbow Baby is a child born after a previous infant loss. He or she is a symbol of hope restored, the sunshine after a storm.
After the Lullaby video went viral, I heard from thousands of people all over the world, and some of the most touching messages came from mothers and fathers who shared their tragic stories of miscarriage, stillbirth, and infant loss.
Although my wife and I have never personally lost one of our own children, we’ve wept alongside our brothers, sisters and close friends who have. At the time Lullaby went viral, my niece Huntley had just been born. She is the fourth Rainbow Baby born into my immediate family.
Writing Rainbow Baby not only helped me process my own grief for such losses, but serves as my attempt to tell you that I love you, that I’m sorry for the pain you’ve endured, and to remind you that the sun will rise and shine again.
I hope Rainbow Baby brings a sense of healing and community to all who listen and watch.
David Motola has been inspired by the familiar sources in his life: his family, great classical music, and (most importantly) getting handed a sick baby and being told to get it to go to sleep. David’s every performance is unique because he doesn’t read music and is self-taught.
