Musician dad of girl killed in Newtown plans album

– The musician father of a 6-year-old girl killed in the Newtown school shooting is preparing an album dedicated to her life.

While the world knows how Ana Grace Marquez-Greene died, jazz saxophonist Jimmy Greene wants the public to know how his daughter lived.

After Ana was killed in December 2012 at Sandy Hook Elementary School, her father found a homemade book on her desk titled “Ana’s flower book for Dad.” The booked was filled with pages of flowers drawn in different colors and shapes.

The new record will include Ana singing the hymn “Come Thou Almighty King” with her brother playing on the piano. Greene sings about his hope to one day join her in Heaven.

He plans to play a few songs from the album at the Litchfield Jazz Festival on Sunday.
