Dream & Promise Gala
This is going to be such a special night with one of my all time favorite songwriters Richard Marx. On May 27th, at the Children's Brain Tumor Foundation 13th Annual Dream & Promise Gala, I will be sharing a special song that is so close to my heart to open up the evening.
In 2006, I wrote this song for my best friend Natalia Crespo Eirin, who was passing away from brain cancer. The song is about wanting to take all the pain and fear away and to be able to give her one more "Perfect Day".
Nat lost her battle with brain cancer at the age of 30, after enduring 18 major brain surgeries over a span of 14 years. Words cannot express the overwhelming feeling I have, that I get to share this song with so many others going through what she went through
Richard Marx has made history with a string of indelible hits that span both radio-ready rock tunes like “Don’t Mean Nothing” and “Should’ve Known Better,” and stirring romantic ballads like “Hold Onto The Nights” and “Right Here Waiting.” How many of you fell in love to that song?
The Chicago native has sold more than 30 million albums and scored a total of 14 No. 1 singles. He is the only male solo artist to have his first seven singles reach the Top 5 on the Billboard charts. Marx has pulled off the rare feat of having songs he has either written or co-written hit No. 1 in four separate decades.
The Children’s Brain Tumor Foundation, a non-profit organization, was founded in 1988 by dedicated parents, physicians and friends. Our mission is to improve the treatment, quality of life and the long-term outlook for children with brain and spinal cord tumors through research, support, education and advocacy to families and survivors. Our goal is to ultimately find a cure for brain tumor diseases.

Community Giving Tree
Doing a little something different this weekend. I will be performing a beautiful song by David Archuleta called "Glorious" with Voices of Hope Boston at a fundraiser for the Community Giving Tree in Massachusetts. I'm excited to be back with VOH to share our voices for a good cause.
The song "Glorious" is all about discovering who we are and the purpose that resides within all of us. If we listen to our heart and let it lead the way, we will see how truly glorious it is!!
Community Giving Tree's mission is to help low-income families in northeastern Massachusetts raise healthy children by providing recycled clothing, baby equipment and other basic necessities.

3/28/14 Make A Wish
This Saturday I get to perform it live at An Evening of Wishes Gala at Mohegan Sun and speak about my story. I also get to introduce a video package showing how Wish kid Sierra’s wish, to visit “Harry Potter Land” in London, gave her the hope to believe in a future. Sierra’s future is one filled with dreams to be a star and to change the world. As the star of the “Evening of Wishes” Gala, guests will witness first-hand Sierra’s dreams become a reality and watch as she begins her journey to change the world, one wish at a time.
I’m so honored to be a part of this night and can’t wait to share the song with you in the coming weeks. Read more here
3/7/14 Happy “Charlie Scopoletti Day!!!"
Sometimes in life we're met with resistance, sometimes the obstacles feel like a course that never ends and sometimes we feel like waving the white flag and surrendering. It's in those moments we need to push with everything we have and break through. We need to stand tall and show the world what we're made of.
If I would have listened to all the nay-sayers, I would have sold my self short of accomplishing a dream and that is not ok. Keep thriving and keep striving. I am so grateful for you! You mean so much to me and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for all your support! Without you, none of this is possible!!!
