Song / Music
Oh God You Rescued Me
Larry wrote ‘Oh God, You Rescued Me’ in the year 2000
”a song about having the tenacity and strength to overcome,” says Larry. Years later, after watching The Voice, Larry was completely blown away by Rose’s performance of 'Maybe I'm Amazed’ which left him speechless. In October of 2021, dreams started ringing true when Larry underwent an intensive yet successful brain surgery to combat his Parkinson's.
Larry’s newly revived health brought back memories of when he wrote 'Oh God, You Rescued Me’, and he then knew that he wanted nothing more than to revive the song and have Rose Short re-record it.
In early 2022 Larry thus signed with Los Angeles public relations, marketing and branding firm, EKC PR, who propelled Rose to record the beautiful Gospel track after she heard Larry’s heartwarming narrative and positive message behind the song.

The life trajectory of renowned Los Angeles attorney, Larry Litzky,
was positively impacted in 2019 while he sat to watch a favorite show of his, NBC’s The Voice. It was a performance of Paul McCartney’s ’Maybe I'm Amazed’ that brought Larry to tears as he witnessed the awe-inspiring sound and presence of ’Team Gwen Stefani’ finalist, Rose Short.
Larry, who was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease in 2009, has always been musically driven himself, earning a Bachelor of Music from the University of Miami (in addition to his law degree from Southwestern Law School). But on that cold November night, Larry couldn’t imagine that Rose would sing a song he personally wrote almost twenty years prior.
Rose Short is the first artist to lend her soulful vocals for a Level 22 composition on the inspiring record, ’Oh God, You Rescued Me.’
