LDS Pianist Releases Poignant Mother’s Day Music Video, “When She Loved Me”

- Advertisment - Save on Great LDS Gifts

Thirteen-year-old Sara Arkell (a.k.a. The Piano Gal) has played the piano since she was 5-years-old and has built a following on social media after various viral videos. She enjoys playing the piano but had never sung in a video before – even though it was apparent that she had a good voice. Her dad thought it would be a great idea to incorporate her three younger sisters in the video, since they look exactly like Sara did when she was younger. He always wanted to film a music video that showed Sara “growing up” on screen.

The song “When She Loved Me” from Toy Story 2 is a very poignant one – it shows the pain that occurs when someone we love lets go of us. For Mother’s Day, Sara and her dad felt they could create a story that would show the relationship between a mother and daughter from toddler to teen. The bond between mother and infant is so strong, but as the child grows, a separation begins and this video aims to portray that separation and also the hope that in the end the mother-daughter bond will again become strong and continue forever.

The video was filmed by Dan Williams, the vocals were mixed by Becky Willard, and the piano was recorded by Guy Randle at Rosewood Recording Studios in Provo, UT. Sara’s little sisters are Kamri (9) Asia (4) and Jessa (2). The MP3 of “When She Loved Me” is being made available as a free download as Sara wants the music and message to spread far and wide.
