Andy Grammer - She'd Say (with Ladysmith Black Mambazo) (Official Video)

  • Published: 16 August 2019
  • I know I might lose some people with this story but sometimes life is unexplainable. This song is by far the strangest most mystical artistic experience I have EVER had. My wife got me a phone call with a medium as a gift. Quickly into the call he said “your mother is coming through and she wants you to write a song to your daughter, she wants it to be from her about everything she’d say but can’t be there to say.” Honestly whether I’m fully in on this or not that’s just a great idea. Also my mom was a huge Paul Simon fan, especially the Graceland album he did with the South African male choir LadySmith Black Mambazo. So when I heard they just happened to be performing in Los Angeles the week I wrote the song it started to get downright eerie. I chased them down, blew up her photo, put it up in the studio, and tearfully explained myself to the choir. They huddled together and just started singing “I miss my mom” in ZULU, it was otherworldly. For the rest of my daughters life she will have this love letter from her grandma that she never got to meet. If my mom were here, this is definitely what She’d Say. Share this if you’ve got a mother or grandmother that you know is looking down on you.

          God lives. Jesus lives. Everyone who has ever lived and died -- their spirit is still alive, and because of Jesus, we will ALL be resurrected and receive a perfected body! It'll be great! I have heard so many accounts of people who have seen those "on the other side of the veil". I believe it is true. I have felt the Holy Ghost's power and guidance. It takes faith to believe in what cannot be seen or scientifically proven. Thank you for sharing your experiences with us! That is so cool! I love the video footage of your very cute and adorable daughter. : )

            Beautiful song. She’s going to love that song when she gets older. What an amazing way to honor someone. 💕

                                Andy, like your father, I am sure your mother "does not care" what the rest of us think. You nailed it, sir! God bless you and yours.

                                                  this song hits home. my grandfather passed away when my dad was 9. i never met him, but my dad tells me all the time that he would’ve loved me.

                                                  Also, my grandma died when i was only 3, my parents tell me she loved me. i wish i could’ve really gotten to know her, i don’t remember anything, but when she passed away. i remember sitting in the room, and watching her peacefully go away. i remember kissing her hand before leaving the room. she had cancer. all i think is that she was suffering, she had to go, although it sucks, it was what was right. it honestly sucks that my dad lost both of his parents, but i think that’s what made him so strong. i love my dad so much.
