posted by Nell Minow

BYUtv’s original new TV series, The Song That Changed My Life, tells the story behind an artist’s inspiration and reveals the song that changed the entire direction of their life. Following the 3/31 premiere, an episode featuring Duncan Sheik will air tomorrow night. The Tony award winning New York-based artist, composer, songwriter and producer first gained notoriety for his 1996 hit “Barely Breathing,” and went on to compose for stage and film, winning two Tony awards for the renowned musical, Spring Awakenings and a Grammy.

The Song That Changed My Life includes candid conversations, informal interviews, never-before-seen rehearsal footage and performance, offering an intimate view into an artist’s creative process and how that one pivotal piece of music inspires and continues to motivate their careers.
