“Friends You Never Knew” – Gary R. Allen

“Friends you Never Knew”

Gary Allen/Craig Mednikov

This song “Friends You Never Knew” was written when Gary lived in Nashville in 2005. The title came from a great friend of his, Craig Mednikow. When Gary wrote the song he wanted to make it about any famous/great person. He didn’t have a particular person in mind. So he started thinking about his six year old daughter and how much she means to him.  It hit him – that innocent children are our “True Heroes” in life. He  then started thinking about the Sandy Hook tragedy and how deeply that saddened him. 

That’s when he decided to make a video for the children!

Good Job Gary!!
