Singer and songwriter Benny DiChiara, Lead singer of the Christian rock band Empowered, released his most personal and powerful single in September of 2021. A tribute to his late father, "I'll Meet You There (Daddy's Song)," is as poignant as it is inspiring, and accessible to all who have faced grief and loss. The song is available on Spotify and other streaming services as of Friday, September 3, 2021. The ambient introduction and first verse create space for the lyrics to hit home before launching into a lush pop-rock chorus that is hopeful and dynamic, thanks to DiChiara's passionate vocal. The driving percussion and bright guitars showcase the recurring refrain, "I'll meet you there," reminding listeners that eternity awaits and the promise of restoration is real for those we love and lose. "After my Dad passed away from cancer in October of 2020, initially, there was that 'sting.' The confusion, some anger, the loss," says DiChiara, who co-wrote the song with producer Mikey Howard (7eventh Time Down with Love Journey Music).
"Oh, but for the love of God! He steps in and gives us hope and joy in the midst of it all! I knew that my Daddy was going to heaven since he had accepted Jesus as his Savior. So I know that I'll see him again. This is how 'I'll Meet You There (Daddy's Song)' was born. Our prayer is that this song delivers the hope, joy, and comfort that only comes from God."
