"As a performer, the confidence to follow my dreams has come naturally to me. I want to give that self- assurance to others," Julia Rae says, when asked the mission of Singing at the Top of My Lungs (SATML). "Whether or not a child is a performer or has another talent or goal, they need to know they too have a voice and can work towards their dreams no matter their obstacles."
A portion of Singing at the Top of My Lungs' proceeds will go directly to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation for research for a cure. "Research is the key," Julia emphasizes, "it is what has allowed me to sing at the top of my lungs." All other proceeds will go to support Child Life, Music, and Art Therapy Programs at children's hospitals.
