Lullabies from the Heart seeks to bring inner strength to people with a breathtaking musical experience. When choosing songs for the album, we sought songs that touch people’s hearts and bring them love and comfort in a way that only music can.
Robert chose Tears in Heaven for Lullabies from the Heart, because the song speaks to the universal, human experience of loss. Eric Clapton wrote Tears in Heaven in the early ’90s after a tragic accident that killed his infant son, Conor. Clapton poured his emotions into the music and lyrics, and Robert has done the same with his vocals.
Robert said, “We have to let go and still continue to love those we have lost. We cry now, but there will be no more tears in heaven.”
