Erika DaCunha, 14, who has numerous food and drug allergies, will be on the 6:00 pm news on City TV Tuesday night, March 29th, to talk about her struggles with allergies and what inspired her to write her new song "Let It Be Heard".

The song is about facing your challenges, standing up for what you believe in and letting your voice be heard no matter what you are facing. The song is dedicated to all the little patients at Sick Kids who no matter what they face are always smiling and ready to take on the day. They are truly what has inspired her to keep positive and to keep raising awareness about anaphylaxis.
10% of the proceeds will be donated to Sick Kids Allergy Clinic to aid in research.

The song is available on itunes for $0.99 cents - "Let it Be Heard" By Erika DaCunha

Did you watch the show?

We tried to listen to her song without success - tried a few times.

Thank you for posting this. My song is on iTunes
www.itunes.apple.com/us/artist/erika-da ... d427376001
My dream is to sell 100,000 copies so I can give a large donation to Sick Kids. 50% of the net proceeds it going to Sick Kids!

Thank you so much

Erika

:huggy :banana no, :thanksign That is such a great song!!!! I hope you are sooooo proud of yourself!!! you soooooo deserve to be!!!

Good thing that you gave this a little bump by thanking the forum (good karma, girl), otherwise I might have completely missed your song and am thrilled to have heard it before the month of May! I was on a holiday and meant to listen later, but you know how that happens....well, you will.....much later in life... :roll: sometimes, I forget about things

I don't do itunes, or facebook, but will get this out there on my travels here in Alberta plus I know a lot of teens. I haven't watched the video yet cause I'm old school and like to make my own memories in my head, but will after I make a few memory triggers......I'll be singing along by the end of the day.
:happydance

Thank you so much! I am having so much fun. One of my goals was to give back to Sick Kids. I shot the music video yesterday and hope to sing for the patients at Sick Kids.
