LISTEN: Lynne Hanson, “Light In Me”

In Their Words: “I was commissioned by a fan to write ‘Light In Me.’ She wanted to ‘gift’ the song to a friend who was struggling and who had isolated herself from friends and family. The idea was that an original song would bring joy to this individual and help her to shake off the darkness she was feeling. When I accepted the job, I thought it would be easy and pretty straightforward. But every time I sat down to work on the song, I felt this incredible pressure to make a difference. It took me three months just to get up the courage to attempt to write it. When I finally managed to get started, I ended up writing the song in just one afternoon. The song explores the theme of loneliness and despair, and rediscovering the light that shines bright in all of us, but that we sometimes lose sight of.” — Lynne Hanson
