Simon May teams up with Blake to record the perfect Royal wedding song

Having written some of the most popular television theme tunes including Eastenders and Howards Way, award-winning composer Simon May has produced the perfect wedding song to help the nation celebrate the Royal Wedding in April.

Having written some of the most popular television theme tunes including Eastenders and Howards Way, award-winning composer Simon May has produced the perfect wedding song to help the nation celebrate the Royal Wedding in April.



The song is written and produced by May and his young team of co-writers/producers Simon Lockyer and John Brant.We wrote All Of Me a couple of years ago and it has already become a popular song at weddings in America. Ive been looking for the right occasion and artist to make the definitive recording.



When Simon met Blake in November of 2010 and saw them performing at the Royal Festival Hall, he knew that the waiting was over. "These boys just blew me away"says Simon. "They have an awesome ability to sing perfect harmonies and interpret a song in either the pop or classical idiom which is an impressive and very unusual combination.



Although All Of Me was not written for Prince William and Kates wedding, no song could be more perfect with its fervent lyrics, uplifting melodies and Blakes beautiful harmonies.In All Of Me Simon and his team have written a song that perfectly fits the romance and commitment of a wedding. Weare really honoured to have been asked to sing it and we hope that the song will touch the heart of the nation and be a special song for many couples on their wedding day, Blake.



ALL OF ME



The first day that I met you


I think I always Knew


That you were meant to be the one


And then the feeling grew


With God and friends my witness


Our love will never die


I take the gift you gave me


Dont need to question why


For all the faults Im made of


And for all the wrongs I do


Im not asking you to judge me


Just be true



Chorus:


All of me


Is what I give to you


And everything I have


I Wanna share with you


And with this ring


For all eternity


I make this vow


When I give you all of me



This life is short and precious


A one way ticket ride


I thank you for the journey


I know youre on my side


And we are only here once


Im glad we shared this day


Of knowing something special


That will never go away


For all the faults Im made of


And for all the wrongs I do


Im not asking you to judge me


Just be true



Chorus



Thats what I give to you


And everything I have


Im gonna share with you


With this ring


I give for all eternity


My love


I make this vow


All of Me.........
