One of the most touchingly beautiful songs heard this year…
“Ana’s Way” by Jimmy Greene is a wonderful tribute to his beautiful daughter Ana Grace. The vocals provided by Kurt Elling is a masterful addition to a song that is musically brilliant. Greene says “I want the music to reflect the way that Ana lived,” and that has been accomplished ten fold.

Who is Ana Grace?
Ana Grace is the beloved daughter of Jimmy Greene and Nelba Márquez-Greene and younger sister of devoted brother, Isaiah. Her life on earth was ended at Sandy Hook Elementary School on December 14, 2012 – a day forever etched in our collective conscious.
Just one glimpse of her face and you can feel the joy that radiated from his beautiful six year-old. This is how her dad, a renowned jazz saxophonist, describes his precious daughter: “Ana’s love for singing was evident before she was even able to talk. In a musical family, her gift for melody, pitch and rhythm stood out remarkably. And she never walked anywhere — her mode of transportation was dance. She danced from room to room and place to place. She danced to all the music she heard, whether in the air or in her head. Ana loved her God, loved to read the Bible and loved to sing and dance as acts of worship. We ask that you pray for the legions of people who are left behind to cherish memories of her.”
