Music for a Cause - Sarantos
"My goal when you listen to one of my songs is very simple. I want you to feel the need to Sing, Dance or move to the groove, Play the song over and over again" - Sarantos
Sarantos' overall goal is to try and raise money for the many terminally ill patients out there. He is willing to perform for free for any event for this cause and 33% of any music related profits are going straight to Make-a-Wish Foundation charity! His website is: http://www.melogia.com
Make-A-Wish® grants the wish of a child diagnosed with a life-threatening medical condition in the United States and its territories, on average, every 38 minutes. "We believe that a wish experience can be a game-changer. This one belief guides us. It inspires us to grant wishes that change the lives of the kids we serve."
Sarantos currently has over 950K twitter followers, 310K Facebook likes and is rated #1 on Reverbnation in the United States and the world in the pop genre. There will be plenty of continued buzz throughout the year.
Sarantos is releasing his long-awaited 1st solo album on November 18th, 2014. His music has received rave reviews so far and he relishes this chance to pursue his life long dream. The 3rd song "Back and Forth" was released this month. This is a smooth mellow pop song about a man who is being indecisive. His mood swings back and forth carelessly.
There will be plenty of continued buzz throughout the year. A new song/video release will occurr each week on Tuesday. A new song on the 1st Tuesday, a new music video on the 2nd Tuesday, a new Funny Video of the Month on the 3rd Tuesday and a new Whiteboard video on the 4th Tuesday.
Having undergone several personal challenges with Sarantos' father passing away two years ago after a long hard-fought battle with lung cancer, dealing with personal health issues like asthma and allergies which affected his singing style, going through life's ups & downs, the timing is finally right. Sarantos main motivation, however, is to raise money for charity.
Sarantos unique sound has been best described by industry insiders as "an emotionally powerful vocal style masterfully united with music that is a fusion of classic 80s rock blended with modern soft rock and pop music!"
Sarantos has always been inclined to help people in need and is proud to launch this CD as a way to donate a portion of proceeds to charity, hopefully inspiring other artists to do the same.
The 11 charities chosen for each song include American Cancer Society, American Lung Association, Make-a-Wish Foundation, American Heart Association, St Jude's, Hellenic Academy, ASERF, American Red Cross, Children's Hospital of Chicago, Chicago Medical School, Thanioton Society & the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
The website, Melogia.com (which in Greek means "with words") was established by Sarantos, an aspiring singer and song writer.
