A Song for My Father is an anthology of songs from the sons and daughters of some of pop music's most legendary artists. They each put a personal touch on a classic song made famous by their fathers, choosing songs that have a particular personal meaning for each of them. The result gives proof that sometimes musical genius runs in the family.

The album was originally released in 2007 by 180 Music, and was an exclusive US release, available only from Target stores. On June 1, 2010, it was re-released for more general availability by 429 Records. [1] [2]
