A couple months ago, I heard about the Songs of Love Foundation for the first time. They're a national nonprofit organization providing personalized songs for kids facing tough medical challenges.
"Give a song today, change a life forever." That's their credo, and it's one I can definitely get behind. So, I decided to write and donate a song myself. The recipient turned out to be two year old Zaden, who's struggling with an early childhood cancer. The song I wrote for Zaden is called "Zaden the Fox". Check out the video to hear the tune and see me recording. I sent Zaden a Kazoo with his CD, so he can play along. Hopefully, I can bring some joy and encouragement into Zaden's life while he's going through this tough time.
If you support the cause, please share the video and help spread the word on Facebook:

**** An afternoon of creative collaboration with Gregg Inhofer —compelling, quirky, incredibly talented, member of the Minnesota Rock and Country Music Hall of Fame. Featuring: Eric Kamau Gravatt, a world-renowned jazz drummer who has played with Weather Report, McCoy Tyner and too many other legends to mention. Charles Fletcher, one of the area’s premier bassists. Jason Parvey on sax; an old soul who plays with the feel of someone twice his age. And Dale Strength, the producer of both of Gregg’s CDs, on guitar. Gregg says, “Come one, come all. We'll be playing selections from my new CD—Music for the Upright Walking—as well as a few things from my first CD, Inside. We'll be throwing in some new things too.” A freewill offering will be taken for Habitat for Humanity. A dessert reception will follow. ****
