I first met Kate Diaz after Vicki Genfan forwarded an original song that Kate, then 10, had sent Vicki after her Guitar Player Magazine’s “Guitar Superstar” win.
I wrote about her in my blog September of 08.
Kate plays a Luna Muse Parlor. After she wrote me the other day, I spontaneously checked out her YouTube page to see how her music was coming along. To my amazement there she was, at 12, playing with Sister Hazel.
The back story is that Kate had collected money playing at a local music venue and donated it to Lyrics for Life, a non profit founded by Sister Hazel, to fund research and support for pediatric cancer patients. It was so amazing to see Kate’s progress in those two years documented on her Youtube Channel. Stop by and say hi!
Kids (and adults) often feel helpless about how to make a difference, but here is a young lady who is living those beautiful lyrics by the Roches… “love is true music, and it radiates around!”
Shine On, Kate!!!!
