Music has always been the biggest part of my life. I was able to find myself though music at a young and very impressionable age. And it’s all because I was fortunate enough to be raised in a household that not only loved to listen to music, but had the means to play music everyday. It saddens me to think that some families just don’t have that luxury.
For those who don’t know, I lost my little brother very unexpectedly one night due to an unforeseen heart problem. I never got to say goodbye to him and it really tore me up inside. I was broken up about it for so long and I when I needed something to turn to, I turned to music. Because music had always been there for me. So I, along with the help of my bandmates, wrote a song to help me deal with the loss of him. That song is called “White Light”
One night while performing “White Light” I broke down on stage. I just let the music move me. There was a photographer that night named Tayler Aubin who captured the moment. And although I was hesitant to post the picture online, I wanted to show how therapeutic music can be for someone.
When I saw the overwhelming reaction to this picture I knew that I wasn’t alone in this feeling. To read all the comments about people who have gone through something similar, or have lost somebody close to them and knew what it was like to just break down. Surprisingly to me, most of them found comfort in our song “White Light” in the way that it had comforted me.
It was at that time that I knew I wanted to make this moment something more. I decided that I wanted to help spread the gift of music to kids who might not otherwise have the opportunity my brother and I had growing up. So thanks to the help of Little Kids Rock and photographer Tayler Aubin, we’re going to be holding a sweepstakes where will be giving away five signed prints of the “White Light” picture where ALL the proceeds go to help put music into kids hands, heads, and hearts who may never have had the means before.
I appreciate your time and the kids will appreciate your donation. www.littlekidsrock.org/whitelight
