For my second song written for Songs of Love, I paired up again with Carl Allocco to write this tune for Prince Ali, “an amazing 7 year old boy”. This song also became another singalong at Credit Suisse, an investment bank in New York City.
This song was the very first Songs of Love tune that I penned with the help of Carl Alloco and Ruth Antrich. Writing this song for Brittany was easy once I saw her photo. She’s a 16 year old girl with a huge smile, who likes boys and sports. The song was used in a Singalong at Credit Suisse, an Investment Bank in New York City.
This holiday season I’m participating in the CYBER PR 2008 Holiday Fundraiser by raising money for The Songs of Love Foundation, which is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing personalized songs for children and teens facing tough medical, physical, and emotional challenges, free of charge.
I am inviting you to make a difference in a child’s life by making a donation towards a personalized song. One thing that I like about this charity is that the recording cost of a child’s personalized song is only $250.00, so it doesn’t cost much to create a special healing gift that will bring a smile to a child’s face.
Songs of Love is a charity that I’ve been involved with personally for a few years now. I started out by contributing donations, and holding fundraisers towards songs, and last year I became a songwriter for them as well. I can’t put into words how it feels to write a song for a child, knowing that the song will provide the “medicine of music”. Over this month, I’ll be featuring Songs of Love songs and videos so you’ll get a taste of why I feel so strongly about this organization.
