Mark Schultz and the Story Behind the Song

Have You Seen This?

Denalee Chapman February 10, 2015

Talented songwriter, Mark Schultz, describes the experiences he had and the emotions he felt when writing the song, Everything To Me.

Mark Schultz had never had the opportunity to meet his birth mother. While writing his song, Mark imagined what it would have been like to meet his birth mother and to offer the deep gratitude he feels for her choice and for the great life she gave to him by placing him for adoption.

Imagining how his birth mother must have felt, Mark Schultz put those thoughts together and created the beautiful song, Everything To Me.
