Both of his parents passed away back in 2003. John added that he and Loretta recorded 150 songs together and shared, “It was like having my mother back in the studio and usually in her best form. Having a friend and learning to believe again together because she learned to believe that she had the strength in her to create these Grammy-worthy records.”

He continued, “It really stands as one of the greatest examples in music that I’ve seen. That’s how I saw my father do it. I saw him endure at the end of his life. I saw him make great music and his creative spark just continued to drive. As I saw it in Loretta, and I had a chance to see it in her more than I have anyone else.”
