Help Wanted: Daddy/Daughter Playlist

Time to put on our thinking caps:

S. needs to compile a playlist of family-friendly songs for the DJ at the Cinderella Ball. "Cinderella" by Steven Curtis Chapman is the centerpiece of the evening and will be played at least twice to allow men with multiple daughters to dance with each one. Think Butterfly Kisses, It's a Wonderful World, My Father's Eyes, etc. Please post your suggestions on the comment page. She has 4 HOURS of air time to fill!

Other needful things: A number of corporate sponsorships have been received and more are needed in order to provide reduced-cost tickets for families who would benefit from them and maximize the benefit to Shaohannah's Hope.

Also, gently-used formal dresses could be donated to outfit some of these princesses. Again, post on the comment page if you wish to help! Thank You!!

Hey, I don't know if you already have these but My Little Girl by Tim McGraw (from the movie Flica)is probably a good one and an old country one i think may be okay is Daddy's Hands by Holly Dunn. An oldie but probably too up beat is MY Girl by the temptations I had to say it though because thats what my dad and i danced to because he has sang it to me since i was little. Just an idea you could try looking up daddy daughter dance playlists on wedding websites there may be a few?

Also, an idea is to look at wedding websites daddy daughter dance playlist and you may get a few ideas?
