Though this song was made globally famous by the great Joe Cocker, and  was one of his most beloved songs, it was the late Billy Preston and the Beach Boys’ Dennis Wilson that actually wrote the song.

In doing some research, it seems that Billy and Dennis were at a party. Billy was laboring over his new song, so Dennis helped him out. They came up with this classic love song, You are so Beautiful, loved by fans all around the world. I know I have always loved to listen and sing along.

As the story goes, Dennis didn’t ask for any writing credit, and Billy was happy to take it, so, yeah. Turns out that most people attribute the writing of You are so Beautiful to Joe Cocker anyway, because who doesn’t love to hear his classic version? What an emotional outpouring. If you haven’t heard it, you should. In fact, pull it up right now and give it a listen. But beware, you may become addicted to that soulful performance.

In fact, it would be really fun to pull it up on YouTube and watch a video of Joe Cocker singing You are so Beautiful. He had some crazy moves and habits, but boy, did they ever work for him! The world lost him to cancer in 2014, but you can still enjoy and appreciate all of his great musical contributions. The guy sang his heart out, every single time.

I have sung You are so Beautiful in numerous weddings and such, but my favorite performance was when I sang it in honor of my mom. She is the most beautiful woman in the world. She radiates the joy of God, and encourages everyone in her path. She is a brilliant career woman, and the best wife, mother, homemaker, and cook you’ve ever met. She is tireless, loving, and kind, always ready to help anyone at any time. Everyone she meets is her instant best friend, and her friend pool is endless. She exhudes the true beauty of a joyful heart. Her beauty extends to her outward self as well, but it is her inward light that radiates in the darkness. If you meet her, you will instantly know what I mean.

Singing You are so Beautiful in honor of my mom is one of my most memorable performances, though only she and I knew it was for her. I felt a little like Joe Cocker, singing from the bottom of my heart!

Happy beautiful life!!!
