So proud to announce and share with you my new song "Light That Shines" a song full of heart and inspiration, a song that will lift your spirit to soar and shine bright. I was blessed to be able to record the song with Oscar, Grammy and Emmy winning Robert Smith at Defy Recordings LLC.
The song is now available for download right here on my site for $5 (with the option to donate more if your heart feels inclined) and we will continue to raise money with ALL THE PROCEEDS going to CBTF.
My heart aches for all the tragedies of the past and present. I know deep down we are better then this and that is why my heart is heavy. We keep losing lives for no reason but to be a wake up call for us to tune in to the real issue at hand…Replacing hate and fear with LOVE.
We all have differences and that’s the beauty of being our unique self but there is one undeniable thing that connects us all...We are all human and in this together!

Are you ready for some new music from me? I have a new song coming out this Thursday (7/14/16) called “Light That Shines”. It was such an honor being asked to write the song specifically for the Children's Brain Tumor Foundation and perform it at their 14th Annual Dream & Promise Gala.
The night raised nearly $700,000 to fund support programs for brain tumor survivors, family members and caregivers.
The song will be available for download for $5 and will continue to raise money for CBTF with ALL the proceeds going to CBTF. (www.cbtf.org)
Special Thanks to Oscar, Grammy and Emmy winning Robert Smith and Defy Recordings LLC for donating their services to the recording of “Light That Shines."

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.
