“Tears in Heaven” is a heartfelt ballad written and performed by Eric Clapton about the pain he felt following the 1991 death of his 4-year-old son, Conor, who fell from a 53rd story window in his mother’s New York City condominium. By all accounts, the death appeared to be simply a tragic accident, and Clapton was distraught for months afterwards.[1]

Co-written by Clapton and Will Jennings, the song was initially featured on the soundtrack to the film Rush, and it won a Grammy for Song of the Year in 1993. It was also included on Clapton’s Grammy award-winning album, Unplugged. It is #353 on Rolling Stone’s Top 500 Songs.
