Meat Loaf's daughters, Pearl and Amanda Aday, honored their father last Friday on the first anniversary of his death by sharing a 35-minute film celebrating his life and legacy, featuring footage gathered from their private archives.
The film is titled Meat Loaf: A Celebration of Life. His daughters called the film "an acknowledgment of the man he was on and off the stage. Not just the performer, but the boss, the mentor, the friend, the husband, the godfather, the grandpa 'Papa Meat,' and the father. The dad who gave us love and generosity, who taught us and teased us. The dad who laughed and cried with us, who taught us how to catch a ball and ride a bicycle, who celebrated our victories and picked us up when we fell down. The man who was a big kid himself. The man who taught us tenacity and the value of respect. Our Dad. The man we miss every day."
Pearl and Amanda posted to social media, saying, "sending our deepest thanks and admiration out to Dad's worldwide family of friends and fans for your continuous outpouring of love and support.: They thanked his fans "for celebrating Dad" and "for loving him with us."
They also expressed hope, saying, "you cry with us and laugh with us, and afterwards, we hope you blast your favorite Meat Loaf songs and sing along as loud as you can. He's definitely listening."
The film is available at MLCelebration.com.
