Yes I am an American Idol fan and LOVED when Willie Spence sang “I Was Here” this past season. He came in second place yet was a winner for me—check out his songs! This song really hit me so many different ways. I thought of ALL the amazing early childhood educators and administrators who opened their programs, their hearts, risked their lives, to be there for the children and families who needed us during the pandemic. AND who keep on going and doing amazing things that will stay with children forever! I also thought of those of us who lost someone close to us during this time and how incredibly painful this has been. This song is dedicated to all of us in early childhood and also to those who lost someone. Beyonce sang and performed this for the United Nations Humanitarian Day eight years ago. Listen to her singing and then go listen to Willie Spence’s rendition. SING KEEP SINGING!
