Lucy has been writing and recording music since she was seven.
She doesn’t much care for playing music somebody else already created — she would rather make her own. Her piano teacher recommended that she take a break from learning other people’s piano music and instead compose her own.
Lucy agreed, but on one condition: All of the music she created had to be put on a CD that she would sell for $10 with the proceeds going to kids who don’t have enough food. Lucy said, “It doesn’t make sense that we have all the food we want, but some kids don’t have enough food to eat. If everyone just gave them a dollar, I bet they wouldn’t be hungry. If I can sell enough CDs maybe I can give them all the food they need so nobody else needs to give them a dollar.”
