Musician Maurice Davis, 27, was compelled to write a song entitled “Missing Children,” after watching a late-night episode of, “The Oprah Winfrey Show.” The episode, which featured the story of a missing child, prompted Davis to work through the night on the song, which highlights the plight of missing and abused children and encourages the public to come to their aid.    

It was after writing the song, that Davis discovered a secret from his past that gave the issue of missing children more personal meaning. When Davis was two years old Texas natives Johnny and Rebecca Davis adopted him and his two brothers, believing that they were abandoned by their mother.

Two decades later, while Davis was preparing to record the song about missing children, he and his brothers received a call from their biological father, Joseph Suarez. Davis was informed that he and his brothers were abducted by their mother, given away for adoption and that his father and biological family had searched for him and his brothers for 24 years. Davis found out that he is a Native American and a descendent of the legendary Apache Chief and American hero, Geronimo.

Davis’ song, “Missing Children,” was recorded after his discovery that he was once a missing child himself, the single “Missing Children” and his debut album “Draw The Curtain” is available via iTunes and all other online distribution avenues.

Davis has pledged to donate .25 from each purchase of the song to the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children® (NCMEC), a non-profit organization that works to find missing children and prevent child abduction and exploitation.
