Nashville, Tenn. (Feb. 25, 2019) - In case you missed Bette Midler's heartwarming performance of the Oscar nominated tune from Mary Poppins Returnswhich earned a standing ovation at last night's 91st Academy Awards, singer/songwriter JJ Heller has released a wistful rendering of the beloved "The Place Where Lost Things Go," available now.

"When I heard Mary Poppins sing her lullaby to the children, comforting them as they miss their mom who died about a year earlier, the scene made me cry as I watched in the theater," said Heller. "It’s an absolutely beautiful song and I knew I had to make my own version!" 

Heller began releasing monthly singles in Apr. 2017 that together have amassed over 10 million combined streams to date. The songstress will continue to announce a brand-new song on the first Friday of each month in 2019. 

Heller’s latest full-length project, I Dream Of You (Vol. II) appeals to parent and child alike. Comprised of timeless covers and lullabies, the 15-song collection contains songs from the 50’s through today including favorites like “Here Comes the Sun,” “Bridge Over Troubled Water,” “Edelweiss” and more, along with three brand-new originals. Birthed out of Heller’s own desire as a mother of two, the project, deemed "medicinal music" by fans, crosses generational boundaries with messages of truth, hope and love woven throughout each track.

About JJ Heller: 
For over 15 years, Nashville-based independent singer/songwriter JJ Heller has traveled the country sharing music full-time with her husband, Dave Heller, who also co-writes, plays guitar, and provides witty banter from the stage. Her songs have been featured on national television, international advertising campaigns, and radio stations across the world.

On Nov. 02, Heller released her tenth full-length studio album, I Dream of You (Volume II), a 15-track compilation including12 of Heller's favorite cover songs from the 1950’s through today alongside three brand-new originals.

When she released her first I Dream of You album in 2014, now one of her most-streamed albums, Heller had no idea how significantly it would shape her career. At the time, the mother of two small girls desired to create soothing love songs with a simple message of devotion from a parent to a child. After listeners began sharing stories of how the songs played an integral role in their family’s bedtime routines, car rides, or hospital visits, Heller began donating the album to hospitals, adoption agencies, and families of young children. The album has since been donated to over 100,000 families.
