2. Personalized Wedding Song
When my husband Jimmy and I were getting married four years ago, we had the hardest time finding a First Dance song that was, well…. us.
We really wanted a song we were truly connected to.
Jimmy was discovered on Star Search by Luther Vandross as a teenager. Luther then wrote and produced Jimmy’s first album entitled, “Roll It” on Elektra Records. We ended up choosing a song that Luther had written for Jimmy called “Whether Or Not The World Gets Better”. It was a duet Jimmy had recorded with singer, Phoebe Snow. We decided it would be the perfect song for us to re-record and dance our First Dance to. This personalized touch is still one of my favorite moments of our entire wedding. The lyrics to the song are already beautiful, but it meant even more that it was being sung in our own voices and it was something that we created.
There are thousands of love songs couples have danced to on their special day but how many can say their First Dance was written specifically for them?
The AMP songwriting team (Jimmy Salvemini & Tony Pruden) recently collaborated with international recording artist, George LaMond on his latest single, “Weak” (availalble on all platforms).

Perhaps you’ll have a pet-sitter drop by with your pet at some point during the wedding.
