HooplaLa video: The smile-a-day website HooplaLa.com found me on the web and sent a Chicago filmmaker out to Potbelly to film an interview for THE HUFFINGTON POST...Orchestra version: I wrote a 22-part orchestra arrangement for CHRISTMAS SMILES that my high school orchestra played with me at our winter concert...
2014 is my sixth Annual Children's Cancer Fundraiser...
I wrote CHRISTMAS SMILES in 2009 when I was 12
...I was asked to write a Christmas song by the middle school chorus that I was in
...I started out in 2009 holding fundraiser events for this cause every holiday season at Potbelly restaurant in Wheeling, IL where I used to perform, as my service project for a summer sports leadership camp
... then in November 2010 I did a studio recording
...then I did a full orchestra arrangment at school
...last year I made a new studio recording because the other one is 3 years old & I sing it differently now
..this year I'm excited to be part of the Boston Tune For Tots holiday event for children's charities. I'm again donating proceeds from my song to children's cancer research and I hope people in the Boston area will also enjoy my Christmas song :)
This is the 6th year that I've run this fundraiser, which started as my leadership service project for a soccer/leadership summer camp that I attended for four summers. It's an awesome five-day camp that combines soccer with leadership, and all the campers design a project to "choose to matter" during the school year.
