Here’s Looking at You, Kid (VIDEO)

Montreal musician Annakin Slayd grew up loving the Expos and idolizing catcher Gary Carter. So deeply, in fact, that when Carter succumbed to cancer two years ago this Sunday, Slayd created a song to commemorate his fallen hero.

On the strength of heartfelt words and hauntingly beautiful images, Kid resonated not only with fans, but with Carter’s former teammates — including Warren Cromartie who “just completely broke down” speaking about it on a Montreal radio program — and even Carter’s family. A touching example of which Slayd spoke about during a telephone interview on Tuesday morning, that we’d like to share with you now:

“I was at an event last year where they were naming a park here in Gary’s name, and his family was invited, so Gary’s widow Sandy and his daughter Christy were there. I said hello, I had met Sandy once before and she was very gracious with me, but I had never met Christy. And Christy gave me a big hug and she said ‘I want to thank you so much because my daughter is three and she’s just learning how to plug the computer into the television so we can watch videos on YouTube. Sometimes I’ll find her starting to connect the computer and I’ll ask her what she’s doing and she’ll say “I want to watch grandpa’s video.”‘

And she’s talking aboutĀ Kid. (Christy) said ‘When I see her do that it makes me so happy to know that this video is a way for her to understand who her grandfather is and she’ll always have this video to refer to’. She couldn’t hold it anymore, she started crying and it was a very emotional moment and it made me feel like that was all worth it, making that video was worth it, and if I helped them at all through their grieving process, that’s more than I could have imagined.”

Proceeds for downloads of Kid went to theĀ Gary Carter Foundation.
