Songwriter sings emotional tribute to Moms and kids, chokes up internet with 14 million views.

Nicole Nordeman is a singer-songwriter in its purest form. She’s known for weaving beautiful melodies into her storytelling that leaves the listener choked up and thoughtful.


Her latest song “Slow Down” was written for her son when she realized he was growing up too fast. She commented on her motivation and heart for mothers everywhere experiencing the hopeful heartache kids growing up can bring.

“I don’t know of a more uttered or whispered phrase from a mother of any age, about her child of any age, than ‘It’s going by too fast.’ I feel like I spend my life trying to slow time. Trying to celebrate the growth and the milestones of my children, and then secretly day dreaming about building a time machine in my garage, so I can return to rocking my babies at midnight.

If you’ve ever looked at your child running across a field, or striding across a graduation stage, or walking down the middle aisle of a church clutching a bouquet, you’ll know why this song is special to me. Please enjoy the video below, remembering the moments we wish we could slow down, and sharing them with those we love most.” -Nichole Nordeman
