Ken Richter’s sons are getting older, so he decided to celebrate their childhood and their bond as brothers through song.
I wrote the song “Little Boy” about a year ago when I realized my boys were becoming young men. I wanted to capture a few of our special moments in a song that we would reflect fondly over in future years. I also wanted to let them know that it’s OK to grow up and take on the world, but never forget the fun of being a kid and playing. Many siblings tend to create emotional distance from one another in their teen years; I also wanted to have this reminder that they were the best of friends as little boys. Two weeks ago, I was diagnosed with esophageal cancer, so this video has become more emotionally powerful for me than I expected. That’s life, though; you never really know what the next day will bring.
Ken previously shared his song “Beautiful Girl” with The Good Men Project last year.
