About Songs For Aidan
Aidan's particular type of cancer requires him to spend a lot of time in the hospital. He has to be admitted to Children's hospital every two weeks to receive his chemotherapy. He has two day admissions which aren't that bad and five day admissions which are difficult for him. Near the end of those five day stays, he gets pretty homesick and just generally sad.
We had an idea for a project that might lift his spirits. We've created a youtube channel called "Songs For Aidan" and I was hoping that we could get musicians / artists from all over to offer a little personal word or two of encouragement and play a song for him. When he's stuck in the hospital and feeling down, we can show him the videos so he can see just how many people are pulling for him and really there's nothing cooler than having someone play and sing a song just for you.
Aidan is a bit of a late bloomer musically, but he is starting to want to listen to music more and this is a chance to expose him to lots of different artists and styles of music.
If you are a musician and would like to perform a song for Aidan, please contact me via email Songbookdjs@gmail.com and we can work out how to get the video submitted (either using something like yousendit.com or wetransfer.com or I can share a dropbox folder with you.)
The response so far has been really heartwarming and I hope that it continues to grow and we get lots of submissions for the project. I do want to clarify one thing though. I really want the Songs For Aidan to be videos made specifically for him not uploads of things that already exists on youtube. I want these videos to be personal and just for Aidan. I want him to see that all these talented people know his story and want to take a few minutes to say hello, wish him well, and play a song just for him. That will make him feel so special.
Order Songs For Aidan Volume 2
We are pleased to be able to offer a charity compilation to raise money for the Music Therapy, Art Therapy, and Pet Friends programs at Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh (where Aidan received treatment for Ewing's Sarcoma.) These three programs brought Aidan a lot of joy when he was stuck in the hospital and feeling a little down.
This compilation contains 6 fantastic songs (and you get a couple of bonus goodies with each download) that we feel really tell Aidan's story well and also convey of message of hope. We're very proud of this compilation and hope that you will purchase a copy and enjoy it as much as we do.
