On Thursday, October 15, Lady A’s Hillary Scott commemorated Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day 2020 with a video from the studio when she recorded her song “Thy Will” for her 2016 Christian album, Love Remains. The video is recorded from the control room, and inside the studio, one can see string musicians recording their part as the track plays overhead. Scott explained that she posted the video in honor of the day because she has had personal experience with pregnancy loss and wrote “Thy Will” in response.

“In honor of Pregnancy & Infant Loss Remembrance Day I’m posting this video,” she wrote. “It’s not a video from the day we found out we were pregnant, or the day we weren’t anymore…it’s a video from February 2016, on the day we recorded strings for Thy Will—@emilyweisband @bernieherms and I wrote it in the midst of some of my deepest pain when we lost our 2nd pregnancy in 2015.”

In honor of Pregnancy & Infant Loss Remembrance Day I’m posting this video. It’s not a video from the day we found out we were pregnant, or the day we weren’t anymore…it’s a video from February 2016, on the day we recorded strings for Thy Will—@emilyweisband @bernieherms and I wrote it in the midst of some of my deepest pain when we lost our 2nd pregnancy in 2015. I’ll never forget the steady stream of tears as I recorded this—just five months after our loss, and feeling overwhelmed with how the string section was playing-every note and every move seemed to be crying along with me. It washed over me in a way that helped me take another step towards healing—feeling even the tiniest bit of purpose in the pain. Grief is so sharp sometimes. It cuts in a way that steals your breath, your hope, and some days your ability to even want to get out of bed. It’s been 5 years since our loss. Some years this day goes by with only a tinge of heartache—with three busy, beautiful, healthy daughters surrounding me I have much to be thankful for and preoccupied by. But today was hard. Maybe because this year has seemed to make every tender place in my heart burst through the surface. “This, then, is how you should pray: ‘Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.” ‭‭Matthew‬ ‭6:9-10 NIV‬‬

She continued, sharing that the string portions of the song perfectly reflected the emotions she was feeling after experiencing two miscarriages.

“I’ll never forget the steady stream of tears as I recorded this—just five months after our loss, and feeling overwhelmed with how the string section was playing-every note and every move seemed to be crying along with me,” she wrote. “It washed over me in a way that helped me take another step towards healing—feeling even the tiniest bit of purpose in the pain.”

Although it’s been five years since her last miscarriage and she has since given birth to twin girls who joined her eldest daughter, Scott says the pain from her losses never truly goes away.

“Grief is so sharp sometimes,” she continued. “It cuts in a way that steals your breath, your hope, and some days your ability to even want to get out of bed. It’s been 5 years since our loss. Some years this day goes by with only a tinge of heartache—with three busy, beautiful, healthy daughters surrounding me I have much to be thankful for and preoccupied by. But today was hard. Maybe because this year has seemed to make every tender place in my heart burst through the surface.”

Scott originally announced the news of her two miscarriages when she released “Thy Will” and Love Remains in 2016.
