Dream & Promise Gala

This is going to be such a special night with one of my all time favorite songwriters Richard Marx. On May 27th, at the  Children's Brain Tumor Foundation 13th Annual Dream & Promise Gala, I will be sharing a special song that is so close to my heart to open up the evening.

In 2006, I wrote this song for my best friend Natalia Crespo Eirin, who was passing away from brain cancer. The song is about wanting to take all the pain and fear away and to be able to give her one more "Perfect Day".

Nat lost her battle with brain cancer at the age of 30, after enduring 18 major brain surgeries over a span of 14 years. Words cannot express the overwhelming feeling I have, that I get to share this song with so many others going through what she went through

Richard Marx has made history with a string of indelible hits that span both radio-ready rock tunes like “Don’t Mean Nothing” and “Should’ve Known Better,” and stirring romantic ballads like “Hold Onto The Nights” and “Right Here Waiting.” How many of you fell in love to that song? 

The Chicago native has sold more than 30 million albums and scored a total of 14 No. 1 singles. He is the only male solo artist to have his first seven singles reach the Top 5 on the Billboard charts. Marx has pulled off the rare feat of having songs he has either written or co-written hit No. 1 in four separate decades. 

The Children’s Brain Tumor Foundation, a non-profit organization, was founded in 1988 by dedicated parents, physicians and friends. Our mission is to improve the treatment, quality of life and the long-term outlook for children with brain and spinal cord tumors through research, support, education and advocacy to families and survivors. Our goal is to ultimately find a cure for brain tumor diseases.

11/4/14 What's your story?

Today I wanted to share with you something I am proud and honored to have my name and song part of. That is something called My-Storytellers Keycharms
We’ve all been through unique struggles, exhilarating triumphs and everyday ups and downs. There are words and phrases that are woven in the fabric of our story that remind us of where we came from and what we are striving towards. They may come from the lessons we learn or universal truths that ring forever true. It doesn’t really matter where; all that matters is that it’s your story, a story that needs to be told. 
As you may know, for the last 3 years I’ve performed at the Conquer Cancer Coalition of MA, and Elisa and I have become extremely close with The Zuker family that founded the organization 11 years ago. They are some of the most loving and generous people we have ever met. Giving back to the cancer community year after year, making a difference in peoples lives and giving them a sanctuary to go to at the Garden of Hope, outside of Boston City Hall.  I am so thankful to have been introduced to them. They have enriched my life and so many others. 
It’s amazing how lives are brought together; intersect at certain moments in time creating memories that become stories. Today is the Day I hope that your story becomes part of theirs. 
My-Storytellers Keycharms is a collection of wisdom and inspiration hand-stamped keycharms. Susan Zuker started stamping these charms a few months ago to give to family and friends, and as a way to help raise money for the Conquer Cancer Coalition. The reaction towards them was tremendous and more and more people wanted them. 
The Keycharms are made to wear and collect. They hand craft each one letter by letter so that no two are ever the same. Every Keycharm is limited edition and helps support great causes. The more you get, the more they get to give. It's that simple.
They have started a Kickstarter Campaign to help with the production and I ask you to please take a look and learn more. They have put together a video to best give you the background and have used my song Today is the Day. I hope you take a look and if you are able to give it would be most appreciated! 
This is your story, wear it proud…

9/20/14 What does it take to Conquer?

Have you ever thought about what it really takes to conquer something? One meaning of “conquer” is to successfully overcome.
Many of us go through hardship in our lives at one time or another. They may be health, financial or relationship related. When we think about it, how do we truly get through those situations? I know I have tried to get through sometimes with only minimal effort. 
I only go half-in. When I should be going all in…(Read Full Blog Here)

3/28/14 Make A Wish

Have you ever made a wish then experienced the joy of it coming true? There is no feeling like it, especially for a young child. When I was asked to write a song for the Make A Wish Foundation I was overjoyed with the opportunity. 

This Saturday I get to perform it live at An Evening of Wishes Gala at Mohegan Sun and speak about my story. I also get to introduce a video package showing how Wish kid Sierra’s wish, to visit “Harry Potter Land” in London, gave her the hope to believe in a future. Sierra’s future is one filled with dreams to be a star and to change the world. As the star of the “Evening of Wishes” Gala, guests will witness first-hand Sierra’s dreams become a reality and watch as she begins her journey to change the world, one wish at a time.

I’m so honored to be a part of this night and can’t wait to share the song with you in the coming weeks. Read more here


3/7/14 Happy “Charlie Scopoletti Day!!!"

I figured you might want to start your day with a little celebration. A year ago today a dream of mine came true when I stepped on the legendary Capitol Theatre stage. As a young boy I imagined that moment in my mind so many times. When people told me it was a long shot, I didn't waver in my belief. I knew that one day I would.  

Sometimes in life we're met with resistance, sometimes the obstacles feel like a course that never ends and sometimes we feel like waving the white flag and surrendering. It's in those moments we need to push with everything we have and break through. We need to stand tall and show the world what we're made of. 
If I would have listened to all the nay-sayers, I would have sold my self short of accomplishing a dream and that is not ok. Keep thriving and keep striving. I am so grateful for you! You mean so much to me and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for all your support! Without you, none of this is possible!!!

What an honor it was when the Mayor of Port Chester presented me with a proclamation giving me my very own day.


3/3/14 Pop Goes The Culture Awards

2/4/14 We Can Beat Cancer...

I am proof!! World Cancer Day is a chance to raise our collective voices in the name of improving general knowledge around cancer and dismissing misconceptions about the disease. 
Myth 1: We don't need to talk about cancer
Myth 2: There are no signs or symptoms of cancer
Myth 3: There's nothing I can do about cancer 
Myth 4: I don't have the right to cancer care 

Love to those we have lost, the beautiful survivors and all who are fighting!
