This music video with the song entitled, “Never Forget You” by Zara Larsson, was created by Erin in memory of her best friend and older brother, Ryan. I am posting this video to commemorate Ryan’s 8th Angel Birthday from his departure on 4/26/09. A heartfelt and powerful video, it is 4 minutes and 26 seconds long.
“Never Forget You” by Erin Lopynski and Ron Sun
A little background about Erin’s singing…
Erin, has been humming and singing since she was born. Be it the shower, dinner prep, bedtime, road trips or just hanging out on a Saturday afternoon, Ryan’s sister would always sing in her fun-loving way. Her tone, her pitch her tempo…it all came naturally. I suggested voice lessons in grade school, but her music instructor insisted that she was too young and should wait until her voice matured. She never did receive voice lessons to perfect her constantly evolving angelic tone, but that did not stop her from singing.
Erin was invited to sing at church during the holidays, solo’s during high school choir performances, at wedding ceremonies, and even on the cruise ship during our family vacation when she was selected to sing at the finale musical. Erin was discovered at the ship’s Karaoke Bar, and asked to sing, “Hit Me Baby One More Time” by Brittney Spears. They gave her the outfit to perform in, and of course she had already memorized the words from childhood. She rocked it in front of an audience of over 1000 people!
We all envisioned Erin to become the next American Idol as we watched the early shows judged by Simon Cowell. She would belt out a song during a commercial, while standing on the ottoman pretending to be a contestant. So it was not surprising years later that she met up with her friend and videographer, Ron Sun, who asked her to star in his music video.
