Support a Child's Dream of Singing

$2,071 of $5,000 goal

Raised by 51 people in 15 months



Hello everyone my name is Marques and I’m Layla’s Dad. I would like to raise $5,000 to pay for Layla’s development as an actor, model, and entertainer, as well as her overall ability to speak better. Layla is an amazing almost 8 year old who has demonstrated a personality and talent that suggest that she would do well as a child entertainer. However, there is one problem Layla has a mild form of Autism and has a speech delay that makes it difficult for her to enunciate words when she sings and speaks. She has worked hard and made great strides from being in special education classes all day to being in traditional classes. She recently received a report card of all A’s and one B in writing. I’ve been able to find Layla some amazing teachers and mentors that are very interested in developing her talents but these services cost more than what we can afford. The money will be used to pay for Layla’s Speech Pathology as well as her voice lessons , acting lessons, photo shoot expenses and overall development as an entertainer. I would like to begin the process of her development as soon as possible. This opportunity to help my daughter gain the confidence and abilities to perform in front of an audience is her dream. She always talks about going to New York and California and I truly believe in her dream and I think that with just a little help she can make them all come true. I will be forever thankful to everyone who assist us in making this dream come true and will promise to remind her to give recognition to everyone who contributed to this journey when she makes it to Hollywood, Broadway and beyond.
