Wellesley songwriter’s uplifting tune born from Boston Marathon tragedy

we will run again, stephen randallWBUR has revisited a story it did last May in the wake of the Boston Marathon bombing that featured a Wellesley songwriter named Stephen Randall who penned a tune called “We Will Run Again.”

He told the NPR news station: “I was so inspired when I heard President Obama say, ‘You will stand. You will walk. You will run again,’ and as a songwriter I immediately got those words in my head and picked up my guitar and started writing.”

An interesting twist with this song is that Randall invited people to record themselves singing the chorus and to upload it to SoundCloud, an audio sharing website/app. The song now combines about 90 voices, including those of the Wellesley High School Keynote Singers.

You can download the song on Amazon, iTunes or Bandcamp, and all proceeds go to the One Fund Boston.
