Skyler Pia, a voice that makes the heart dance

17 Jun

I recently found this CD:

One World One Kid

Lets say you are having a bit of a bad day, a bit uninspired. This is the CD to put on. Skyler Pia, a fantastic 7yr old, had a friend, Erik, who was sick with cancer. He turned inside his heart to find what would possibly make his friend feel better and he went to that which makes him happy: world music. It was when Skyler was 6 yrs old that he decided to create a radio show, introducing his friend Erik to the joy of world music. When you listen to this CD all that you can do is smile. When we take a moment to turn inside as a way to offer the best of ourselves, in order to serve, to help out, only beauty emerges. Even though you may not particularly like world music, when you listen to Skyler’s passion and enthusiasm as he introduces these songs, when you feel his uplifting gift come through his voice, your heart will dance.

You can get a hit of Skyler by listening to this story on NPR, and also read more about him and his family.

The coolest part of this whole thing is that proceeds of his CD by Putumayo World Music, go to the Make-A-Wish Foundation and it’s less than $6!!!! Get it, you will not regret it!
