The Make-A-Wish® Hudson Valley Foundation is an organization which grants the wishes of children with life threatening conditions. We Sing For The World became inspired by this organization and in the power of a wish and took on the task of creating the benefit concert We Sing For Wishes on December 10th at 8 PM at the White Plains Performing Arts Center in White Plains, NY.
“Music is a powerful force that can bring people together and can make others heal”, founder Daniele Hager thought as she created We Sing For The World back in 2011 after the devastating tsunami that hit Japan back in March. Focusing on lesser know charities, disaster relief and even personal tragedies, the organization’s mission is to raise funds and awareness for those in need. We Sing For The World presents numerous benefit concerts in conjunction with various non-profit organizations featuring renown singers and musicians.
Proud to present our fourth concert, We Sing For Wishes will be an event of Broadway favorites with Westchester’s own John Treacy Egan. John was last seen on the Broadway stage as Joey in Sister Act. John is an active performer both on the Broadway stage as well as with benefit concerts and cabarets. Other performers include: Founder Daniele Hager, Broadway performers Robi Hager, Gabby Garza, Julia Harkey and opera vocalists Scottie Roché, and Johnny Hager.
Special guests include Westchester’s own Ben and Ross DeMarco, our youngest singer Molly DeLuca, and a wish-kid herself, Bianca Muñiz. Bianca’s dream has always been to be a singer and performer. We are thrilled to have her be a part of this special event. The band includes music director, Eli Zoller, NYC musicians Freddy Hall, Alex McCabe, John Hager, Tim Borecky and Marques Walls.
We Sing For Wishes is an event that will remind us that anyone can wish upon star. The concert will begin with Molly singing “When You Wish Upon a Star” and will end with the full company singing “Make Our Garden Grow”. The frame for the event makes us believe that we can make our dream grow if we just believe. Anyone can wish upon a star and Make-A-Wish® makes these wishes come true for many children who believe. We want to help this cause, as we have all wished upon a star at some point in our lives.
