Song for a Hero

We honor and pay tribute to the Heroes in the world by creating special, personalized songs.

 A Hero may be a veteran, a physically challenged adult, a child who is ill, or a victim of a tragic accident.  It could be your Mom, your selfless best friend or the person you admire that has accomplished amazing feats in extremely difficult situations. Your Hero will love their own personalized, special song with lyrics specific to their accomplishments and that emphasize love, family, strength, and hope.

If you have someone in mind that you would like us to create a custom song and/or music video that will pay tribute to your Hero, let us know.                                                                                                                                                               

 

We are honored to highlight David Segal as an amazing person who persevered through physical challenges to become a highly respected professional drummer. We created this song and music video to showcase his accomplishments, including being one of the founders of Can-Do Musos, an organization for musicians with disabilities. David played and recorded the drums on this song in a studio outside of New York City.  You will see this in the video as he records himself with his phone during the actual studio session. Check out his solid groove as he lays down the track. His personal story is depicted in this music video and is an inspiration to all of us.

“That was just amazing all that you accomplished!”

“Nothing better than watching your story and how awesome the song was written!”

“Awesome song/video David! Ultra cool!”

“Dude, That was BAD ASS!!!”

“Dave, my old best friend, you are an inspiration! Love the tune and lyrics.”

“By the 3rd verse, I was singing along  ???  Very catchy! ?”

Music to Educate

We recently delivered a children’s song that encourages children to take great care of their teeth.

It’s called “Big Heroes Save Little Heroes”   and was created with input from a wonderful dentist that donates her time to an elementary school spearheading a pilot program designed to result in a cavity-free future.  Our song is intended to be part of the curriculum.

lt also serves as a two-minute timer so kids can play the song while they brush their teeth.

The theory of relativity occurred to me by intuition, and music is the driving force behind this intuition.
