Geoff: Your First Day in Heavan

DSC_0436Geoff: Your First Day in Heavan

I’ve always loved singing. I’ve been in choirs all my life. For the past six or seven years I’ve been in an Acapella group that meets in Cleadon. I even go on singing holidays.

I love this particular song because it’s one of joy, you reach heaven and everything is there.

When my daughter was sixteen, I played it to her for the first time in the car. Soon, whenever we were driving she was bouncing up and down enjoying it.

When she was eighteen we had a short break in Berlin.

I was attending a Barbershop Harmony College, my first international event. In the evening there’s an ‘afterglow’ party where you all get together and sing to each other. I asked them to sing this to my daughter as a surprise. Sixty of us stood around her singing. Her face was a delight. You could see how much she enjoyed it.
