A hip hop artist from Houston who writes and records a song per week is releasing a new single to raise money for a place close to his heart.
Tyler Skyy had four heart surgeries as a child and says his new single “Smile” will be raising money for the new Ronald McDonald House which houses families while children go through medical treatment.
“One of my friends from Houston told me that one of my old teacher’s daughter is staying there and it jus made me think. I have had heart surgeries at the Children’s Hospital and they work with the Children’s Hospital so I felt like I owed a little bit to them and wanted to help them out a little bit.”
Skyy says 100 per cent of the proceeds will go to the Ronald McDonald House.
The new single, “Smile” which features a children’s choir, and has a positive message about finding the bright side of things will be out Saturday with a music video to follow.
“I want to just shed a little bit of light on a more positive side of everything and show these kids and families that even though you are going through this tough time and everything kind of seems like it sucks right now, you can still find things to be positive about. You’re still here.”
