The subject title says it all: Write a tribute song to a person who exists (or existed) in real life!
Yesterday I made a short song about the German astronaut Ulf Merbold. After doing this, I thought it could be a nice challenge subject.

That's all!

So let's see how many Trump songs will grow out of this... Wink

Have fun!

The first track I recorded this summer was a tribute to my hero, the jazz fusion guitarist Allan Holdsworth, who passed away earlier this year.

I wrote one for our very own Nadia. It's on my page, and it's called Nadia's Room.

I suppose my track today is kind of that.

Nadia suggested I could use the song about my Granddaughter Kindle here also.

This is dedicated to the greatest hero of our age: the 'this is how we glue it' guy.

It's a pleasure Maddie. x

Here's mine, thanks reklov! http://fiftyninety.fawmers.org/song/24345

I'm waaaay behind (started a month late) and desperately needed a challenge like this.

I had been planning this since Chester Bennington's suicide and then this challenge dovetailed nicely with it.

Here's my offering: http://fiftyninety.fawmers.org/song/25637

I've put the full text of the story on the song page, but this is a tribute to a couple whose tragic story has gone viral on twitter in the last couple of days

I can't highly recommend both listening to the song (which is extremely well done) and reading the story (warning: heartbreaking) that @French Cricket has posted.
