    Is 'At Last' your song?

    That's our song!


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     'The song has many meanings to us; the words speak specifically to our romance,' says jrdenny959. 'But the song also signified the inauguration of the first African American president. We were both big supporters of Pres. Obama and his campaign and excitedly watched several inauguration balls were the song played prominently. When we chose the song we had the First family in mind.'
    - rachel8, CNN iReport producer

    At Last was my wedding song nearly 2 years ago. Like many brides I agonized over the first dance song. My husband and I both prefer old school love songs to the newer stuff. But after listening to countless love songs, we kept coming back to this one.

    We knew it was for us when listened to the words closely, additionally, the song brought such fond memories of the President and 1st Lady's inaugural dance, which we stayed up and watched all night long.

    I've always been a fan of Ms. James thanks to my parents. So much emotion and feelings in every song she poured her song in to each one - she'll live on to eternity, every time two people fall in love or a heart is broken. Classic!
