Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) June 18, 2012
Today, two year old Zaden had a big smile on his face - despite struggling with Neuroblastoma (an early childhood cancer): Zaden is the recipient of the latest song donation from the Songs of Love Foundation, a national nonprofit organization that is dedicated to providing free, personalized songs for children and teens currently facing tough medical challenges.
The songs donated are original and written especially for each child, with references to their favorite people and activities. To date, Songs of Love has provided more than 23,000 songs for children in more than 500 hospitals across the country. Songs of Love relies on donations from the public as well as car donations to keep the charity afloat. But they've had some prominent support, too: Artists including Van Halen's David Lee Roth and Jason Mraz have been involved with the charity in the past.
Now, Minneapolis-based musician and songwriter Gregg Inhofer has joined the list of contributors with his first song donation. Inhofer's song for Zaden is called "Zaden the Fox". It's a fun and energetic tune with sing-along quality: With his CD, Inhofer sent a Kazoo - so Zaden can play along with the lead melody – and a video greeting with footage from the recording session.

As a keyboard player for Bob Dylan, Curtiss A and Olivia Newton-John, Gregg Inhofer has been a fixture in the music scene for over four decades. In recent years however, the keyboard wizard Inhofer emerged as a songwriter in his own right. In 2011 he released his well-received second solo album "Music for the Upright Walking".
Inhofer says about donating a song: "I love the idea behind Songs of Love and I share their credo - Give a song today, change a life forever. If I can bring some joy and encouragement into Zaden's life while he's going through this tough time, as a songwriter, I can't ask for more."
