"A Song for Grandma and Grandpa"...
In 2004, the National Grandparents Day Council of Chula Vista, CA.
announced that A Song for Grandma and Grandpa by Johnny Prill
would be the official song of the U.S. National Grandparents Day holiday.
The National Grandparents Day Council presented Prill with the National
Songwriter's Award in recognition of his highly popular composition
"A Song for Grandma and Grandpa.
The Council announced Prill's award early in order that schools,churches
and other groups who wish to perform his song for Grandparents Day
will have time to acquire and rehearse the song.
The song was chosen because "Grandparents Day gives grandchildren
across the nation the opportunity to show love and appreciation for
their grandparents. Johnny Prill's A Song for Grandma and Grandpa
is exemplary of such appreciation.
United States Senator Debbie Stabenow told Prill: "It is wonderful that
'A Song for Grandma and Grandpa' was chosen as the official song of
National Grandparents Day. What a special tribute to your talent as a songwriter.
You have put into words the unique relationship between
grandparents and their grandchildren."
American folk singer Pete Seeger stated,
"Here's to Johnny Prill and his song for National Grandparents Day.
May his song spread around the world and be translated into many languages!
