Mike, I can't thank you enough for putting this together and telling my wife and my love story. I was an amazing moment seeing the look on her face when I told her I had a song that I wanted her to hear. She was completely surprised when she knew from the first sentence that this was our story. We could not be happier with how it turned out.

My wife and daughters got this for me as a 65th birthday present. Mike did an amazing job capturing the highlights and creating a song that made me feel honored and very special. At first when I began to listen to the song, not knowing anything at all about this gift, I thought it was a song from Michael Stipe from R.E.M. It wasn’t until about the third line that I realized this was a song about me. Mike, I wish you great success in your career as a musical artist, it certainly is well deserved. Thank you so much, I really am speechless.

Perfect!!!I love it. Thank you so so much for capturing the love for my grandson into a beautiful song. He loves playing it all the time. I can see in his reaction how proud he is to know that he has his own song that describes him in such perfect way. Again, Thank you so much...

AMAZING! If you want a rock sound and attention to detail, you gotta choose Mike. I was a little nervous, I didn't know how the song would come out but he took all of our details and made it the best song for my dad. He's going to love it! I haven't shown it to him yet, but I cried when I listened to it. Awesome!! Thanks Mike, for taking that extra step to make it personal and I appreciate your time.
