It’s both a unique and unforgettable way to announce and celebrate the expectancy of one’s firstborn. Ethan Kent and his wife Audrey have done so by releasing a lullaby entitled “Heartbeat.”
Penned by Ethan along with Jamall Houston, the lullaby is a passionate aural love letter from parent to child (“…before you learn to crawl or walk your own first step / I ain’t perfect, but I vow to do my very best / Know that I’ll give life more just for your heartbeat…”) with the baby’s actual heartbeat synced to the lullaby at the end.
According to Ethan’s blog, he learned of his and his wife’s pregnancy Father’s Day, following a musical engagement in Chicago. The mother-to-be requested that he compose a song for “the big announcement.”
“Heartbeat” is available at iTunes, and a portion of the download proceeds will go to prebornfriends.org.
Congratulations to the parents to be!
