If I remember correctly, the year was 1993 when I first heard “Tears in Heaven”. Our music teacher at school, played the guitar nonchalantly and sang it. I was mesmerized by his performance.
Once done, he explained the context of the song and the sad history behind it. He also spoke about Eric Clapton and revealed to us, how big a star he was, especially for his generation of people. My respect for this teacher grew ten-fold that day because he made the effort to explain how important it is to get the feel of a song right.
As you might know, I’ve been trying to revive an old passion of mine – singing. In doing so, I have been trying my hand at Smule for the last couple of months. Last week, for some reason, this song came to mind and I couldn’t resist singing it.
Hope you like it. (Let me remind you that I am an amateur and not a professional singer). Please find the link below to the Smule recording. Do check it out and let me know how you felt.

I love Eric Clapton and one of my favorite, albeit sad song, is his Tears in Heaven. When it comes on the radio as I’m driving my car, I sing along and can feel the weight of sadness he will always hold within his heart. A brilliant guitarist and all ’round musician.
I love this song!
I LOOOOOVE this one! Tears in Heaven….one of my favorite ones, yes, sir! Thanks for the memories and GOOD music. Keep up the good work, Sid.
Thank you so much…😊
