@specialklove: I just have to say, I absolutely *love* the idea of “I’m Cool” for a recessional song!  I am definitely adding that to my list – thank you 🙂

I just found this song the other day while listening to VH1 Soul! What do you think of this as a Recesscional song?? I absolutely LOVE this song…the message is so cute! Do you think it will be awkward walking up the aisle to it? Or is it perfect?

Anthony David – 4Evermore feat Algebra and Phonte
