One of our more memorable events was a benefit we held for a 2 year old little boy diagnosed with terminal brain cancer, JJ Estep.
Nashville songwriters, many in our own group, including Dani Carroll and Marjie Parsons, and local Native American musicians, including Mike Serna, came together to help raise a good sum of money for the family. Joe Johnston and Carole Eveland helped with both parts of the show, with entertainers as well as Native protocol and guidance.
Thanks to Dani and Marjie, we had some pretty big names in the mix, some of Chicago and Fleetwood Mac fame, and still others with number 1 hits to their credit. You may enjoy seeing a young Brittini Black, now with a recording contract and airing videos on GAC and CMT, before she hit it big!
Three years later, little JJ is still with us, now 5 years old, and no trace of that tumor! To celebrate, I'm adding here the beautiful flyer (to the right - [click on flyer to make it larger]) created by Susan Warner, the press release for the event (see below), and a video clip (also see below)!
We hope you enjoy reliving, or visiting for the first time, this wonderful occasion we celebrate and remember together. To JJ - Long life, little one!
