Here is to the Class of 2020! Here is to every child (and every grown-up) who’s ready to fly.
 
Here’s to my son Evan Amadeus, who learned so early in his childhood that living life comes with taking the falls and tumbles, bleeding through the cuts (and not just the ones on the skin) and courageously keep walking on – with hope and love.
 

 
Here’s to my son who learned to breathe deeply when anxiety came, who found comfort in helping and mentoring his peers, who is known in his class by his beautiful smile and deep joy-filled belly laughter, his music and his art (he painted shoes and water bottles for his friends, designed band T-shirts, and necklaces).
 
One day when Evan was 4, his little one-year-old brother Blais was crying in the back seat. I was driving and couldn’t help him. I tried to talk to Blais, but the sound of my voice only made him cry more.
 
Evan took his little brother’s hand and started singing to him a sweet little lullaby. Blais cried, but Evan kept singing his song over and over again, every time as gentle, patient and sweet, until Blais calmed down. I blinked really fast to clear the tears that were fogging up my vision.
 
He just has that special gift of caring, courageously sharing of himself (even when he is unsure and uncomfortable), and pulling up a part of him that brings comfort to others.
 
And he is so incredibly talented and smart and disciplined! He started singing at my concerts as soon as he could talk, started playing violin at 4, switched to piano, tried a year of guitar, and picked up mallets (vibraphone and marimba) and percussion when we moved down to Nashville.
 
He sits at the piano and plays jazz, composes music, and makes my heart melt.
 
When Matthew got sick, Evan went into his room and drew a picture for him. Over the past two years, he’s been posting his art (in progress and finished pieces) on his Instagram account @AmadeusAttemptsArt.
 
Because of his generous and giving spirit, I wanted to make a gift for him – and from him for the world.
 

 
Evan wrote the music piece titled “Remember.” I selected Evan’s art from his Instagram account and made it into a story (using references and memories from his childhood). Dante animated it into a short movie, and Blais did the voice of the ‘child’ 🙂
 
If you’d like to watch a short video about how this story came together, check it out here. I made this video for my Patrons (I do a lot of behind the scenes videos) but I unlocked it for you to be able to see it too!
 
Please share Evan’s video with your graduate, and anyone who might need an encouragement to not be afraid to soar – even during this challenging time of so much uncertainty and fear.
