From the second they appeared on the CMT competition Can You Duet? in 2008, the world fell in love with Joey + Rory. Although they didn’t win the competition, the duo went on to release eight albums and had three singles appear on the charts.
The couple’s loyal fan base rallied around them when they announced that Joey had been diagnosed with cancer. After undergoing treatments, the doctors eventually said there wasn’t nothing more they could do. That’s when the couple made the decision to return home so Joey could spend her final days with her loved ones.
Rory detailed their experiences on his blog, This Life I Live. As Joey’s inspiring story gained more attention due to her bravery and unshakeable faith, more people started to discover their music.
Before Joey passed away on March 4, 2016, she left one final musical gift behind for her and Rory’s fans. The album, called Hymns That Are Important to Us, topped the Billboard country and Christian album charts.
Joey’s musical legacy continues to live on in the couple’s seven other albums as well. Their third, called His and Hers, contains some of their most recognizable songs, including “When I’m Gone” and “Josephine.”
One of the other songs on the album is a sweet little love song called “Waiting for Someone.” Co-written by Rory and Erin Enderlin, the song tells the story of two people who have a chance meeting after the woman was stood up on a blind date.
The woman keeps saying that she’s “waiting for someone,” referring both to her absent date and to a person she hopes to spend her life with someday. The way the song ends leaves the listener to believe that the man the woman meets in the song is the one she’s been waiting for.
Joey + Rory sang “Waiting for Someone” in an intimate acoustic session that they filmed for a video. Sounding just like an angel, Joey sweetly sings about what it feels like to have finally found love in her life. She keeps glancing up at Rory the entire time she sings, showing that he was her “someone” that she had been waiting for.
Tune in to the video below to watch Joey + Rory’s stunning acoustic performance of “Waiting for Someone.” Joey’s heavenly voice and beautiful spirit will forever be remembered thanks to videos like this.
