Local musician writes memorial song for Savannah LaFontaine-Greywind
FARGO — A local musician is helping honor Savanna LaFontaine-Greywind by writing a song in her memory.
T-Roy Anderson is known for his guitar playing, harmonica whistling and singing in the Red River Valley.
"I do have a lot of songs, I've written over a hundred, but this one to me is really special," Anderson said.
This October, he says the lyrics to 'Angel of Hope' came to him, inspiring a piece about Savanna; a pregnant Fargo woman who was abducted and murdered this August.
"Then after it was all cut and dried, I just thought I would want her to be remembered, so I wrote a song to try to help keep her memory alive," Anderson said.
Anderson says he played the song for some of Savannah's family last week.
"I played it for some of her family members, and the tears were flowing and she said, 'it's a beautiful song, thank you.' So that made me feel even better about things," Anderson said, "I wanted their approval before I did anything with it."
Anderson plans to record the song in studio sometime in the near future.
