Monday All American Morning News with Eric Scott
8/13/2012 (Courtesy TheBoot.com) — Good Morning! David Nail is using his captivating voice to raise money and awareness for a very worthwhile cause. On September 26, the Missouri native will perform for Going Country for a Cure, a benefit to help the Peyton Wright Foundation and the Cancer and Blood Disorders Auxiliary of the Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh Foundation. The Payton Wright Foundation is the namesake of a little girl who valiantly fought cancer for a year and a half before passing away at the age of five.
“The story of how brave little Payton was caught my attention, then captured my heart,” says the “Sound of a Million Dreams” singer. “To see this little girl fight so hard, never give up and be so positive … You realize what struggle really is, and you want to do whatever you can so no more children have to face this sort of terrible illness. The idea that I can bring my music to Pittsburgh, to have these songs and my band help something so deserving, that’s the greatest thing that comes with having a little bit of success: benefiting others.”
