Saturday, May 20, 2017 is the annual Celebration of Champions event to support Rady Children’s Hospital in San Diego. I was gifted with the honor of writing the event’s new theme song. I wrote the lyrics and melody for “We Are Champions” and co-wrote the musical composition with Chris Anderson and Israel Garcia. We had a great time developing the trio sound for “We Are Champions” and together we will be performing/debuting it at the event. I am hopeful that this new theme song will help children and their families feel empowered, supported, and loved.
This songwriting opportunity is close to my heart as my friend Samara (pictured here) went through cancer treatment at Rady Children’s. Samara is the daughter of one of my dear friends and she is also a featured character in “Kathryn the Grape’s Piece of Love.” Samara is now in remission and is thriving in preschool. Just last week we played at the park and we giggled together as Samara raced me to my car. (She won!) Running. Giggling. Remission. Yes!! Expect Miracles. ✨ 🙏
If this resonates with you, I encourage you to come down to the Embarcadero and experience this incredible event. Perhaps your family and/or company will want to become more involved in this purposeful effort to support children with cancer. 💜🦋🌎
