Lori Henriques When I Look Into The Night Sky on Cool Mom Tech

At least a few nights during summer vacation, we throw “reasonable bedtimes” out the window and stay up way too late around a bonfire or lying on the beach gazing at the stars. And now we have a song that captures beautifully the sense of wonder those stars stir inside with lyrics and a melody that are intoxicating as a sultry summer’s night.

Lori Henriques performs When I Look Into The Night Sky borrowing the haunting melody from folk song St. James Infirmary Blues, but with lyrics that are much more appropriate for kids. Accompanying herself on piano, Lori sings of how she feels when she looks up at the stars and thinks about her place in the universe. Big thoughts, for sure, but it’s told in a way that will make sense to even the littlest stargazer.
