Fred sent a handwritten copy of the song he wrote for his wife, “Oh Sweet Lorraine.”
“Oh sweet Lorraine, I wish we could do the good times all over again.
“Oh sweet Lorraine, life only goes around once but never again.”
While Fred didn’t win the contest, the studio owners created a beautiful professionally recorded song from Fred’s lyrics with a mini-documentary that they posted on YouTube. And not surprisingly, it spread like a wildfire worldwide.
“Oh Sweet Lorraine” is now No. 10 on iTunes, right there with Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus, Lady Gaga and Robin Thicke.
