Dear Charity Music,
Tim was a very talented musician and gifted song writer who grew up and lived in the Detroit area.
Tim;s last project was with the Detroit band Superlast. sadly Tim passed way a few days before knowing that the band had won a local contest to play at the DTE Music Theatre opening for Def Leppard. Tim would have loved to have been there and heard his songs performed at such a large venue.
Tim would like the idea of giving all the kids the chance to have music in their lives thus I would like to honor him with this donation. His family and friends will miss him dearly but he'll live on through his music.
