10 Songs to Celebrate Father's Day
Mother's Day came and went. Now it's time to acknowledge the important men in our lives. We know that the role of a father carries a valuable weight and makes a big impact on how we are shaped. There to give us sound discipline and love all around, he's helping to turn young boys into men, and daddy's little girl will always be his princess.
Although we have appreciation all year round, Father's Day is a special time to further express just how much we care. Whether you refer to him as Papa, Dad, Daddy or Pops, here are some songs to help you celebrate the father figure in your life.
