If you asked Andy Grammer who had the biggest impact on his life, he'd point to his godmother, Leigh. Because of that, he's dedicating his new music video "Saved My Life" to her, because she inspired the song.
"'Saved My Life' is about Leigh, my Godmother. She was my mom’s best friend. She super showed up for after my mom’s passing," Andy revealed on Instagram. Andy was only 25 when he lost his mother, Kathy Grammer, to breast cancer in 2009.
"Our loss was so tremendous," Leigh said of losing her best friend and how Andy, in turn, saved her. "[She] was such a big, huge part of both our lives."
You remember Andy from songs like "Keep Your Head Up" and he told Leigh he not only wants her to appear in the music video, he hopes to inspire his fan base to also shout out the individuals who changed their lives for the better.
"Whether a teacher, a parent, a stranger, or a friend -- I want to know who impacted your life in a positive way," Andy explained, noting they only have "10 words or less" to share their story.
Andy provided an example, saying that Leigh "stepped into the mother role when mine passed away." He then said to Leigh, "I genuinely feel like you saved my life in so many ways."
