One of my favorite people (I have a lot of favorite people) is Ben Haggerty, better known as Macklemore. This post won’t be long. I don’t need to tell you in detail what he’s done for music or for people. If you don’t know, it’s all over the internet. He’s made people dance and cry, created an anthem for a community, said what we’ve all been thinking, and proven that no matter how hard the struggle; you can always overcome it.
He, along with Ryan Lewis and Ed Sheeran just released his new single, Growing Up (Sloane’s Song) today. And he nailed it. As soon as I heard of it, I thought of my youngest brother. He recently found out he’s going to be a dad himself. He’s young and he’s still trying to figure out who he is. But he’s going to be an amazing father regardless of the journey that’s in front of him. This is for him. I love you, Lo.
Macklemore also wrote a letter along with the release of the song. You can read that, listen to, and download the song for free here: Growing Up (Sloane’s Song) Congratulations to the Haggerty’s on your littlest bundle of joy!
