If I had to choose my favorite song for a graduation celebration or to honor someone who wants to make a difference in life, I would pick "I Was Here" by Lady Antebellum.

The lyrics to 'I Was Here' talk about wanting to make a difference in this world and wanting to do something that matters. Both the music and lyrics are inspirational.

Be sure to listen to 'I Was Here', it's a wonderful song:


You could of course send a graduation card with a lovely personal note inside.

  2. Of course I like the idea of giving music for any occasion, but these songs really would be awesome and thoughtful graduation gifts. Even if you a sending a tangible gift, including the song would still be a great idea.

  3. What a lovely way to encourage and celebrate a milestone in life. I like this idea because you can put it to use to cover many miles that might separate you from your loved ones. Music is always a wonderful gift and if it has been chosen for you by someone you love, even more so! Great idea Barbara!

  4. I love your inspiration for honoring the true essence of the one who is entering a new phase of his/her life. Music is priceless. And, the thoughtfulness of your gift-giving ideas take celebration to a whole new level. I used to spend hours creating music and reflection sound tracks for special friends/special occasions. I wish I still did that. Maybe I will now that you have inspired me once again. Thank you for that!

  5. I just recently pulled out a cd that someone had made for me. It was scratched and no longer played without skipping, but I clearly remembered how much I loved that cd when I received it. I really like your idea of song dedication/gift.
