Singer-songwriter Dan Fogelberg passed away from prostate cancer last December at the age of 56, but thanks to his wife, Jean, the voice that soundtracked many a love affair -- particularly with the wedding standard, 'Longer,' -- will help couples celebrate their love just in time for Valentine's Day with 'Sometimes a Song,' a simple, tender acoustic number.
"In February of 2005, Dan went to Colorado for a few weeks to supersive some ranch business and to do some work in the studio," Jean said in a statement. "I stayed in Maine. It was hard for us to be so far apart for so long, especially since we'd miss Valentine's Day together. On the afternoon of the 14th, the florist brought me a dozen long-stemmed roses; Fed Ex brought me a CD with a song Dan had written for me just for Valentine's Day."
The song is being released on Tuesday as a digital download on iTunes, among other places. Most importantly, all of the proceeds will be donated to the Prostate Cancer Foundation.
