The sTory behind the song in emme's own words:
"I originally wrote 'Peter Pan' in 2007 for my late husband, Tony Lentino, who passed away 5 years ago from small-cell lung cancer. We were just friends at the time I composed the song. Although I performed it live at shows in New York, I never recorded it until I moved to New Zealand. I collaborated with producer and songwriter Bryan Bell, and we recorded a cinematic version and added a bridge. We went on to compose more songs, all geared towards encouraging and uplifting others. These songs became an EP entitled Light in the Darkness. ’
In 2016 I began visiting schools in my local area performing the songs and talking to kids about kindness, love, and hope. The CD was given to these students along with glow in the dark T-shirts with the message ‘Be a light in the darkness, shine’. Primarily the only folks who got this CD were friends and family and school kids in NZ".
In keeping with her charity work and heart for others, Emme wanted to create an opportunity for folks to buy the CD and T-shirt . All proceeds will be donated to Hands of Grace Rae of Light/Heart of Indie Radio www.heartofindieradio.com for their Suicide Prevention Program. Emme believes strongly in the message of hope and healing for others. Her hope is that her listeners will be inspired to donate to this worthy cause. Every purchase made will help shine a light and provide much needed support for Hands of Grace- Rae of Light.
