Wish Wednesday: Celebrating Music Wishes

Ivy's wish
Last weekend we celebrated music with the GRAMMY® Awards. Music. The variations of melodies that can energize us, uplift our spirits, calm us, soothe our pain and take us back to memorable moments. For a creator, music is a portal of escape … an opportunity to release negative emotions and reach a state of bliss. For this week’s Wish Wednesday join me in celebrating wish kids who connected their musical aspirations to a rejuvenating wish experience.
