95-Year Old Actress Pens Song About Marriage Equality
Actress Marsha Hunt, 95-years young, is giving Macklemore a run for his money by penning a song all about LGBT equality.
The star of None Shall Escape and A Letter for Evie wrote the song "Here’s to All Who Love" at her piano in her home in the Los Angeles suburb of Sherman Oaks. The melody is old — Marsha Hunt hummed it decades ago while driving home from a United Nations meeting, in an attempt to stay awake at the wheel.
Here’s to all the lovers,
Here’s to all who love,
Never mind their genders,
Love will rise above.
“I have been to two gay weddings and I have been so enriched in their friendships,” added Hunt, who also wrote the song "Here Come the Grooms" for one of the ceremonies. “I’m not militant about the issue, but if it takes marriage to bring acceptance to gay and lesbian relationships then it needs to be total acceptance.”
Hunt enlists Glee's Bill A. Jones to sing the tune.
