I was still lost inside although my dad was 74 when he died! I feel terrible even admitting that when others never know their dad or lose him as a child. On this night, the main question I had that I could not answer was - what if I never see him again??

Sarantos Releases His Most Powerful Singer And Songwriter Piece "What If I Never See You Again" Which He Wrote After His Father's Death As He Struggled To Cope & Recover.
Death is a very traumatic time for everyone involved. When a parent passes away, the grieving process begins. Does it ever end though? Although the memories of your parents stay with you forever, probably one of the questions that most lingers is if you will ever see them again. This touching melody makes that the central theme. While there is no other well-known song written specifically about this concept, it seems like a topic that has been experienced by many.
The grieving process comes and goes. However, whether people are religious or not, they will naturally wonder if they will see their parents again in some way or another. It seems that it is common for humans to ask this question after the death of a parent. This will also probably bring to the forefront new questions about the complexity of our planet and maybe our deliberate designer who not only created the universe but also helps sustain it today. Eventually, the question becomes does God really exist. Is there really a heaven? Will I see my dead parent again - in heaven or elsewhere?? What will happen to me after I pass away? The questions will come. Unfortunately, no one will answer them definitively for you.
These are all the real questions that will run through one's mind as they deal with the death of a parent. Sarantos knows this because it happened to him. So he decided to try to capture the essence of this frustration and exasperation one sleepless night and the song was born. The song, melody, rhythm and length fit the mood and feel of this night.
“This is a classic indie singer-songwriter song about what happens to the living after the dead are gone," says Sarantos. “Specifically, we always think it's easier when a parent passes away and leaves behind their children, regardless of the age. I do think that is true and no parent should ever have to bury his child. This song, however, was born one long sleepless night two years after the death of my father. I still didn't have the closure I craved or even a sense of purpose or balance. I was still lost inside although my dad was 74 when he died! I feel terrible even admitting that when others never know their dad or lose him as a child. On this night, the main question I had that I could not answer was - what if I never see him again?? So I wrote a song about it...”
33% of any music-related sales profits from this song are going straight to The National Center For Fathering.
The National Center for Fathering (Fathers.com) is a nonprofit educational organization that strives to improve the lives of children and establish a positive fathering and family legacy that will impact future generations by inspiring and equipping fathers and father figures to be actively engaged in the life of every child.
More than 24 million children live in a home without the physical presence of a father. Millions more have dads who are physically present, but emotionally absent. If it were classified as a disease, fatherlessness would be an epidemic worthy of attention as a national emergency.
Sarantos' music has received rave reviews, and he relishes this chance to pursue his life long dream. Sarantos' unique sound has been best described by industry insiders as "an emotionally powerful vocal style masterfully united with music that is a fusion of classic 80s rock blended with modern soft rock and pop music."
Sarantos won the Akademia LA Music Awards in March 2015 for:
- Best Rock Music Video for “We Accept The Love We Think We Deserve”
- Best Pop Rock Album for “Not Where I Wanna Be”
Sarantos was nominated in 2014 for 2 awards for the 2014 International Music & Entertainments Awards, for the categories of “Rock Song of the Year” and “Pop Album of the Year.”

Sarantos has been writing lyrics since 4th grade and is passionate about the words he puts to the music. Music was always in his blood. Music was always a passion and much more than a hobby. Sarantos has written over 2,000 songs. Having undergone several personal challenges with Sarantos' father passing away four years ago after a long hard-fought battle with lung cancer, dealing with personal health issues like asthma and allergies which affected his singing style, going thru life's ups and downs, the timing was finally right. And so it began. Sarantos' main motivation remains, however, to raise money for charity.
33% of any music related sales are going straight to charity.
Sarantos has always been inclined to help people in need and is proud to launch his music as a way to donate a portion of proceeds to charity, hopefully inspiring other artists to do the same. Just a few of the charities chosen so far include the American Cancer Society, American Lung Association, Make-a-Wish Foundation, American Heart Association, St Jude's, Hellenic Academy, American Red Cross, Salvaton Army, Children's Hospital of Chicago...
The website, Melogia (which in Greek means "with words") was established by Sarantos, an aspiring singer and song writer.
