FLOWERS - Anthony Riley

A good friend and fine musician, Bob Loy, asked me if I would be interested in making a video of a song he recorded with Anthony Riley.  
Anthony's story is a sad one, chronicled here and in many other publications -http://articles.philly.com/2015-06-09/news/63189019_1_battle-round-best-street-performer-the-voice
Bob was in the middle of recording many of his own songs with Anthony when he died.  This is a lovely piece called Flowers.  This is not the official version.  It is an exclusive preview for you faithful followers.   After working with the music for a couple of weeks I find it very moving. Is it the back story, the lyrics, the tune, the voice?  Let me know what you think.
