We Will Remember: Federal Way woman writes 9/11 song | VIDEO

From staff reports:

A week after the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, Federal Way resident Nita Delk wrote a song called "We Will Remember." Inspiration for the song came quickly, she said.

"I just felt very compelled," said Delk, who performed the song once in public at a school in 2002. "We were very impacted by the overwhelming grief."

Last month, Delk finally recorded the song over a two-week stretch with help from Dick Henderson at Henderson Productions in Federal Way. Delk sings four different parts on the track along with background vocals from her son Brandon Delk.
