I’ve been contributing my time producing music, for Vince Gill and Melinda Doolittle, to benefit Vanderbilt Children’s Hospital’s Music Therapy Program. 

It is a program supported by the Julian T. Fouce Fund to help patients express themselves through song.

The kids collaborate with a music therapist to write songs.  Some of the songs are being recorded by popular artists to be released on CD. 

Watch the video below and see us in the studio with Vince Gill recording “That’s Who I Am”.
