15-Year-Old Sings Beautiful Military Tribute 'Soldier's Light'

A young girl sings a touching military tribute with her original song, ‘Soldier’s Light.’


Many of us have family or loved ones that have served or are currently serving in the military. While most come back home, some soldiers make the ultimate sacrifice for our country’s freedom.

This incredible act of courage should not be glanced over and this Memorial Day, one teen is honoring our military in a very special way.

Rylee Preston is a talented 15-year-old singer and songwriter. In 2007, her family friend, SPC Justin Rollins, was killed in Iraq while serving our country and fighting for our freedom. After his passing, Rylee was inspired to write a very special song in her memory.

When you listen to the lyrics of 'Soldier's Light' you will be reminded of the brave sacrifice of these courageous men and women who serve our country. It's something we should never take for granted.

“We'll leave the light on until Daddy comes home.
We'll leave the light on for our soldier.
To remember all who've fallen, honor all who served.
The soldiers light, reveal it, and forever burn.
We'll leave the light on!”

This song truly does a beautiful job of honoring the memories of those who have served or are currently serving. This talented teen truly has a big heart and this song is just what our country needs to hear today.

While listening, take the time to reflect and truly thank all of our troops for their selfless service to protect our freedom. We will never forget.
