The song that gets standing ovations

December 4, 2009

I’d heard Mark Schultz’ “What it Means to be Loved” on KLOVE several times over the past few months, but I didn’t quite catch the full story behind the song until they interviewed him during a morning show. If you are carrying a baby who is not expected to live long after birth, this one is for you. If you feel that no one really understands you and the decisions you are making for your baby, listen to the full interview. It will give you a lot of comfort to know that Mark Schultz says that all over the place this song always gets a standing ovation. 

Mark Schultz ‘What It Means To Be Loved’ Song Story

by Aimee Herd : Sep 17, 2009 : Staff – CMSpin.com
“What It Means To Be Loved” is a song that basically wrote itself. I just happened to be in the room when God dropped it in my lap. Its genesis was actually from a story that my wife told me about a family that she’d worked with at the hospital.

The mother was expecting a child and was told that tests revealed health issues that meant the baby probably wouldn’t live long after birth.  Although the doctors suggested terminating the pregnancy, the mother decided she would love the child as long as she could.  I took those emotions and that unselfish commitment and poured them into the “What It Means To Be Loved” lyrics.  

The video discussion is here.
