Thank you for visiting this very worthy cause. My name is Ted Boylan. I live in Alberta , Canada . I’m a music lover and sometimes search YouTube for young talent to support. When I find awesomely talented kids, I sometimes help promote them by driving traffic to their site.
One day I discovered a nine-year-old girl from Mexico named Pau (short for Paulina). She was playing drums to My Life Would Suck Without You by Kelly Clarkson. Wow! I turned up the volume. Watching her drum was amazing, especially 2:59 when she drums while crossing her arms. Amazing. I think I watched it about six times in a row, at least twice daily over a one-year period. The best part was the very end of the video and seeing Pau clap her hands, with that beautiful smile of accomplishment on her face. She won my heart.
I have been diverting traffic to youtube and helping with comments. One day, my comments were answered by The Warning, thanking me. I was just so happy to help this young girl Paulina. And that’s when I learned she has two sisters, Daniela and Alejandra; The Warning is the name of their band. Daniela plays lead guitar and is an amazing singer. Alejandra is incredible on Bass Guitar. These three talented young sisters are amazing musicians and are amazingly close. When one is happy, the others are. I am one of their biggest fans and can’t wait to see what the future holds for these musical treasures.
The girl’s father, Luis, is an equally warm, sincere and humble man. Through Facebook and email, we became friends. They are truly a loving family with an incredible and rare bond. One day, we were discussing the costs of nurturing the girls’ musical talent. Luis admitted that paying for musical lessons for three girls is a challenge. From my experience it’s difficult enough for a family just trying to meet basic day-to-day needs, let alone trying to come up with the funds to purchase costly instruments and Lessons for 3 children.
Luis shared that the girls would love to attend a summer program at Berklee College of Music in Boston Massachusetts and how badly he wishes he could enroll them, but cannot due to the cost. Luis, is confident each of them can earn a scholarship once accepted; getting them there is the first hurdle.
Luis and the girls have become like family to me. I’m inspired by the girls’ passion for music and incredible determination to share their talent with the world and that’s why I have chosen to provide whatever support I can. I invite you to join me on this journey. The girls are so close to making it big, but they need help from people like us. On behalf of Luis, Monica, Paulina , Daniela and Alejandra, please try to provide a financial gift—big or small—every little bit helps and would be greatly appreciated. To all the corporations and businesses out there who believe in supporting amazing talent, these ladies need you.
Update-the band is releasing some songs in March 2015 they’ve published themselves. Check out The Warning’s official website http://www.thewarningband.com and consider lending your support to help make the girls’ dreams come true.
