Country star Randy Travis has become one of America’s most beloved singers. His mix of gospel, country, and pop helped him climb the charts in the ‘80s and ‘90s, leading to decades of success.
Randy’s performance of ‘Whisper My Name’ is an emotional tribute to fatherhood. The number one hit song was released in 1994 as the second single from the album ‘This is Me.’
Randy stands in a room surrounded by black and white photos. As Randy sings, images of a father standing over a baby’s crib play over the video. Later, a toddler plays in the same room, and Randy is shown as the father.
Randy sings the touching lyrics, “And I heard music bring a heart of stone to tears. And I heard peace ring like an anthem through the years. And I heard hatred fall from grace. When I heard you whisper my name.”
Randy’s daughter is shown going to prom, and she says goodbye to her dad. Next, Randy is walking his daughter down the aisle at her wedding. It is easy to see that he has a hard time letting go.
Some years pass, and Randy sits on his porch as his adult daughter arrives, showing signs of pregnancy. She gently places Randy’s hand on her stomach to feel the baby. More years pass, and Randy is much older, lying in bed.
His daughter holds his hands and comforts him. The music, lyrics, and imagery are real tear-jerkers as Randy takes us through the joy of fatherhood over the years of his life.
