[Music + Video] One Heart Two Homes by Rachael Nemiroff

Breakout artist-songwriter, Rachael Nemiroff, to release her most personal family song with One Heart Two Homes, October 29th. The single was co-written by Nemiroff, Jonathan Gamble and Lauren Hungate at a writer's retreat in Monteagle, Tennessee earlier this year. The artist has never shared a certain part of her life story through song, but she felt this was the time for complete healing, since so many people deal with broken homes.

Nemiroff's parents divorced when she was a young child, and instead of the separation becoming more normal, it became more difficult as she grew into an adult. With two households and two sets of parents, that can include new partners and siblings, leads to divisions for the holidays, birthdays and other special occasions that can become overwhelming. Whether the offspring are adults or children, there are so many emotions from guilt, anger, confusion and the uncertainty of the future. However, Nemiroff's faith has given her hope, and this support has given her the insight that the earth is broken, but God's love is perfect.

"I hope by sharing this song, which is a part of my own story, would lift the shame of divorce and help facilitate healing conversations," said Nemiroff. "I felt so ashamed and thought that something was wrong with me because of my parents' divorce. I would go to church looking at other families, whose parents were still together, and I wanted that so badly. Open discussions would be so helpful for the children of divorce, by processing different emotions and providing resources to help them feel heard and seen. They need to know it's not their fault, as this happens with an adult decision."
