The QLZ Music Minute--Music news written by Bishop for Springfield’s Real Rock, 92.7 QLZ
Making wishes come true
Who Says Papa Roach don’t have a heart? Recently the band got a knock on the door from the Make-A-Wish Foundation. They had a patron who wanted nothing more than to meet the band. Super fan teenager Mark Guerra, who is currently battling a brain tumor, wanted record a tune with Pap Roach. The band didn’t just let Guerra come in for a recording session, they made a muti-day ordeal outta the whole thing. It started with dinner and then VIP access to a Papa Roach show in New Jersey, then the next day Guerra and his band Breaking Boundaryz took to the studio. Here’s what’s super-duper cool and a total dream come true for Guerra … Eleven Seven Music said they will release the EP digitally with a percentage of the profits going to the Make-A-Wish Foundation. It’s a win, win for everyone! The entire deal was captured by Fuse TV and will air Nov. 26th.
