Somebody’s Hero by Jamie O’Neal will bring both a smile and a tear. It’s a beautiful dedication song honoring a mother’s lifetime commitment to her child and her family, and her daughter’s lifelong love for her mother.
Mom may have ‘never rocked Central Park to a half a million fans, screaming out her name’ or ‘pulled anyone from a burning building’ but as the song so beautifully expresses, ‘she’s somebody’s hero‘.

The song travels through a lifetime of love between a mother and her daughter; from a little girl, to a new bride, to visiting mom everyday in the nursing home, to being a mom herself. The ending of the song is both a combination of hope and inspiration. As she honors her mom, by being by her side in her senior years, ‘she’s the envy of the Nursing Home‘ <— there’s the part that brings a tear. The video perfectly expresses the lyrics to this song; there are no complicated metaphors, just a reflective presentation of a precious life story shared by mother and daughter.
