Singing and a love of music have been part of Utecht’s life since childhood, thanks to growing up in a family blessed with musical talents. Performing was as much a part of his life as football, allowing him to star in the field and behind the microphone.
Being able to share his love of music, talents, and the joy of positive, inspirational music continues to energize Utecht.
”I don’t remember a time in my life that wasn’t impacted in some way by music,” Utecht says. “If I can use my music in some way, to positively impact the lives of others, then I know I am using it in the right way.”
His impactful 2014 single, “You Will Always Be My Girls”, a musical love letter from Utecht to his wife and daughters, has been viewed well over a million times on YouTube and continues to pick up fans from around the world. Utecht’s personal struggle with ongoing neurological issues, after sustaining five diagnosed concussions from playing football, led him to co-write the song. He hopes his family will always remember how much he loves them, even if, someday, he may not be able to fully remember them.
His touching lyrics and passionate vocals, along with the emotional starring turn by his wife Karyn and their precious young daughters, make the song’s video absolutely unforgettable.
