I’ll Be Seeing You – Ginger Bess

Hi my name Ginger Bess.  The song I am submitting is “I’ll Be Seeing You” because it is a song that is very near and dear to my heart.  It was originally written as a letter to the soldiers sent overseas during WWII.  It is a timeless song that helps us find those we love in the places around us.  I sang it at my Grandpa’s funeral and it will forever remind me of him. I really love using music as a vessel  to help others.

Not In Nottingham – Ginger Bess and Daniel Simons

Growing up as a farm boy in Idaho all we really had for entertainment was radio and the occasional movie recorded from TV on VHS. One of my favorite songs was from Disney’s Robin Hood played over and over on a worn out video tape. Somehow I always related to the rooster minstrel, Alan-a-Dale, as he sang about hard times in Roger Miller’s “Not in Nottingham.” To this day the beautiful melody and simplicity of this tune has given me hope. Times do still get bad but somehow this tune makes me feel lucky that I don’t have to deal with worse like some people do. “We’d up and fly if we had wings for flying. Can’t you see the tears we’re crying’. Can there be some happiness for me?” It just makes me grateful for what I have and makes me want to help those who do not. So here’s an acoustic rendition recorded with my lovely wife Ginger Bess. Available on her album Give Me the Simple Life. www.gingerbessmusic.com and iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, CDbaby and all that stuff. Thank you for allowing us to donate our recording to such a wonderful cause. Enjoy.

Everything Changes – Vin Tufano

I’m a solo artist, songwriter and music publisher. I wrote, sang produced and played the instruments on this track.

This song is very personal to me and is about getting a second chance in life. In 1984 my grandmother passed away from stomach cancer and I also had several friends that died because of this terrible disease and some that actually beat it thank God. I wish that they would find a cure very soon and I wish I could do more than just donate my song. I’m not a religious man but I still pray for the doctors and scientists to find a cure and I also pray for the ones plagued with this horrible disease. And for those of you that are going through this right now I know it’s difficult but please stay positive and don’t ever give up fighting no matter what. I hope my song will help you and make a difference in your life. Thank You I hope you all enjoy my song and if you’d like you can also check out my video for this track on YouTube.com.  Just go to YouTube and type in Jodi Records in the search bar. Thanks Again and may God bless you all.

Just One Of Those Days – Kristina LaRae

I am a Christian artist who has performed all over the East coast in various churches, and have performed with Gospel Stars Kefia Rollerson and Brittany Wright. My desire to break down barriers and divisions in the Christian world has given me opportunities to perform for many diverse audiences for many good causes.

One of these causes is the “We Believe Foundation” which helps teens with cancer, and educates teens and families about cancer in young people. I have done multiple fundraising events with this organization to raise money to help with scholarships and to pay for things like prom and graduation costs, and medical bills.

In 2009, my step father was diagnosed with Cancer, and through our family’s work with the We Believe Foundation, we were educated and his cancer was detected early. He was successfully cured through surgery. I strongly believe in education and regular cancer screenings to help prevent death from cancer.

 “Just One of Those Days” was written to help me through some things I didn’t understand. As a child, I was always taught to pray for help with anything- even little things, like losing my keys, but that God was just as responsive to the big challenges in life, and just as in control. If we can put our day into perspective, no matter how bad it is- with God- it’s literally- JUST one of Those days! Tomorrow is always a new day!

Thank you for this opportunity to further help with this cause!

Adagio For Strings – The Waterford School Ensemble

Kathy Morris has been Orchestra Director of the Waterford School for many years, one day hoping her students could perform her favorite song, Samuel Barber’s Adagio For Strings. After a 22-year wait, she was richly rewarded in a recent performance by her Ensemble students. She and The Waterford School generously donate this personally meaningful and treasured version to Songs For Life, hoping it offers cancer patients and survivors the same relief, beauty and inspiration it does to her. All performers are high school students.

The Key To My Heart – Annie Lynn and Alex Wilczewski

My name is Annie Lynn.  I am a children’s songwriter, and I write curriculum-based songs for schools, choirs and non-profits.  I recorded the song “The Key To My Heart” with my son, Alex, when he was 10 years old.  Alex is an amazing kid. When he was 14, he was diagnosed with Crohn’s Disease and went through some painful testing and treatments, including taking one anti-cancer drug that was supposed to help him heal. When he was 15, he ended up having three hospitalizations, a month of home TPN,  and two surgeries to remove a foot of small intestine and his appendix at Children’s Hospital in Philadelphia (Best kids hospital in the world!!!).  It was a difficult and scary time for him (and for us as well). Alex’s room had a big glass window, and it faced the oncology ward and looked into all rooms that had curtains open.  He spent two weeks with a naso-gastric tube in his nose, unable to eat, waiting for his second surgery. During this time, a change came over Alex.  Instead of becoming depressed, he became even more determined to get better. He had been cheered up earlier in the week by a visiting therapy dog, and he got the idea in his head that he wanted to cheer up other children as well.  He asked me to go home and get his beloved puppets; A chicken named Phil, and a houndog named Cujo.  Once he had Phil and Cujo, and pulled his i.v. pole and tubes over to the little sofa in front of his window.  He saw a little boy holding a Teddy bear, who was being comforted by his mom on her lap.  He looked very sad and scared.  Alex got down behind the sofa, and started doing puppet shows for the six or seven children who had their curtains open.  I watched as smiles spread down the row of rooms, and children pointed to the puppets.  After the show, Alex popped up and waved to the other children in the oncology ward, tubes and all. They clapped, and then my heart melted some more.  The scared little boy took his Teddy bear, and made it wave its arm up and down, gesturing hello to Alex.  The next day, a nurse from the oncology ward stopped by Alex’s room in the surgical ward, and she said she had had several children ask when the next showing of “Phil and Cujo” would be… Well, you didn’t have to ask Alex twice….he put those shows on for five days, before his surgery, bringing smiles to children who were sicker than he was. This fact was not lost on Alex, and he thought a lot about that.  Two days after his second surgery, he wheeled himself downstairs to guest D.J. at the radio station studio at Children’s Hospital, and told funny stories and jokes, as “D.J. Semi-Colon” and took calls from children in their rooms, who wanted to know all about Phil and Cujo, and Alex.  Alex had words of encouragement for the kids, and his positive attitude helped other children laugh.  I was so proud of his strength, and his commitment to make others feel better even though he was also sick.

I asked Alex if he wanted to submit his song to Songs for Life 2015, and he said ABSOLUTELY! He wants all sick children to remember this… “Don’t give up trying to get better, and hold on to positive thoughts, because the minute you give up trying, you could actually have been two minutes away from getting better.”  Alex would like to dedicate this song to current and past pediatric cancer patients, as well as all those suffering from cancer.  Best wishes and prayers to all, Annie Lynn and Alex Wilczewski
