MINNEAPOLIS (January 16, 2013) – Wish child Sabrina who wished to write and record her own songs will celebrate the release of her CD titled “Revolution” at the Semple Mansion in Minneapolis on January 20, 2013.
Eleven-year-old Sabrina has battled chronic lung disease since she was born. Because of her life-threatening medical condition, Sabrina has missed out school activities and doing stuff with her friends. One of the things that give Sabrina joy is singing. She especially loves writing her own songs. Sabrina’s passion for singing inspired her wish to write and record her own music into a CD.
“I decided on my wish because it is something about me and my music. I write songs that I want people to think about,” Sabrina said. Make-A-Wish® Minnesota connected Sabrina with Joel Sayles, lead singer of Rocket Club, who worked with Sabrina to write her original songs titled “Perfect”, “What Lights You Up?” and “Summer.” With the help of engineer, Kevin Bowe, and Grammy award winning producer, Steve Hodge, Sabrina recorded her songs at the Institute of Production & Recording.
Sabrina looks forward to serenading 100 of her closest friends and family with her sweet voice performing her original songs. Sabrina’s CD release party is planned for 5 p.m. January 20 at the Semple Mansion in Minneapolis. MEDIA IS INVITED TO JOIN IN THE FESTIVITIES AND COVER THIS EVENT. There will be opportunities for footage/images and interviews with Sabrina as she shares her inspirational story of hope, strength and joy.

We have met many new terrific new people whose kindness and generosity will never be forgotten,” Naomi said.
