Artists Record Children’s Songs for Charity

Seventeen-year-old Chris Weber can boast of something that few other songwriters can—he had a song recorded by Vince Gill. Chris, who has suffered from cystic fibrosis since was an infant, worked with songwriter Jenny Plume as part of Vanderbilt Hospital’s music therapy program in Nashville.

Vince says that he was honored to record the teen’s tune, “That’s Who I Am.” As part of the program, Jenny collaborates with children to write songs, shaping their ideas and messages into lyrics and adding a melody to it. Other artists, including Faith Hill and Kix Brooks (of Brooks & Dunn), Amy Grant and Cowboy Troy have all lent their voices to the program, and the songs recorded by these celebrities are slated to be released on an album this year.

The project benefits the Julian T. Fouce Music Therapy Fund, which supports the music therapy program at Vanderbilt Hospital.
