Mervyn Warren - "Joyful Noise" (Song Demo) by MervynWarren published on 2012/09/14 21:14:13 +0000 This is a demo of a song I wrote for my 2012 film "Joyful Noise," starring Queen Latifah and Dolly Parton. I was asked to write an uplifting, choir ballad with no solos and minimal drums. (Of course I hear ad-libs and drums all over this thing, but omitted them, as requested.) :-) I'm playing and singing everything you hear. Ultimately, this song did not make it into the film. Them's the breaks!
