Local NYC songwriters Vinny D’Orio, Dave Rath, Michelle Cleary and Tina Kenny have released an incredibly moving tribute to all of our fallen heroes just in time for the Memorial Day weekend. If you have lost a loved one in the armed or civil services, you better break out your tissues. It’s gonna get a little wet in here…
“Not Forgotten” was written for and is dedicated to anyone who has lost their lives in the line of duty. The song conveys the message that those we have lost continue to impact us on a daily basis. We remember who they were and how they influenced us. It reiterates the promise that we will not forget their sacrifice.
“Not Forgotten” communicates that even in the absence of a loved one their presence remains, their impact on our lives continues, and most of all our love for them endures. Michelle, Vinny, Dave, and Tina wrote a song that reiterates the promise… we will not forget.
“Not Forgotten” was written by Vinny D’Orio, a NYC Police Officer of four years and retired NYC Firefighter; Dave Rath, a Lt. with the FDNY; Michelle Cleary, the daughter of a retired NYC firefighter, professional anthem singer, and singer/songwriter; and Tina Kenny, professional musician.
A portion of all proceeds will be donated to various charities.
