Exactly 11 months ago, I lost my father to cancer. I personally know what it feels like to be faced with one of life’s toughest challenges. I also know that no one should ever have to go through this alone. We at Livin’ the Music want to form a support system for the Lake Charles community that will last for years to come. We have a growing network of gifted songwriters whose music has a positive message - who believe music can, and will, change the world. It is incredibly inspiring to find people from all walks of life, across all genres of music, with the same message of optimism. Livin’ the Music is excited and honored to bring this energy and awareness to OB’s in Lake Charles. Music is the vehicle for the message. PLEASE HELP US MAKE THE WORLD A BETTER PLACE, ONE SONG AT A TIME.

The Ethel Precht Breast Cancer Foundation - www.ethelbreastcancerwalk.org Bringing families and friends together to support each survivor and those currently battling cancer. Not every time the word "cancer" is said does it spell "death". However, Ethel Precht has lost her only sister, dad, aunts, uncles and grandmother to some type of cancer. Her two sons and husband have all had prostate cancer, her daughter-in-law ovarian cancer and her 92 year old mother and she herself are all living proof that there is life after being diagnosed with the big "C". Twenty-Two years ago, Ethel was diagnosed with breast cancer. She is living proof that there is life after cancer. While in Houston receiving treatment, friends invited her to a breast cancer walk. She was so moved and touched by the care and love at that walk that she decided to do something similar in Lake Charles. Since 2004 they have helped over 60 survivors with monetary gifts. This has become a yearly event, and in 2007 they had over 1000 participants in the walk! Their goal is to have families and friends come together to support each survivor and those currently battling breast cancer. The walk continues to grow thanks to the local support of businesses and families. While Ethel, believes money is needed for extensive research, her walk is dedicated to local survivors and their families. When going through cancer of any type, there are so many other things going on in a family and money is needed for the small necessities of life, as well as research for a cure. The money from the walk only goes toward residents in Cameron and Calcasieu Parishes. Nobody associated with the walk gets payment of any form. Everyone volunteers their time for the cause. All of the money raised stays in the community to help offset what insurance does not pay. It is a gift for a survivor. If we can make someone feel better about themselves while going through some of the darkest moments in their lives, we have reached our goal.

In the summer of 2008, they decided that it was time to start playing some of the original material that had been written over the past two years. RESEARCH TURTLES is a four-piece indie-rock band from Lake Charles, LA. The band’s debut album, “Time Machine EP” was released officially on November 14, 2008 and can be purchased in its entirety at www.cdbaby.com/researchturtles.

DILANA (from CBS’s “Rockstar”) - www.myspace.com/dilanarox Born in Johannesburg, South Africa, the girl known by age two as Dilana Smith discovered a love for music at an early age, participating in school and church choirs as an escape from an unpleasant home life. Inspired by such visceral singers as Janis Joplin and Tina Turner, she left school at sixteen to follow her own dreams and soon found herself with a promising music career in Holland, becoming one of the country's most coveted live acts. Her 2000 album Wonderfool scored five singles, four videos and a string of touring and festival gigs throughout the region. Dilana gained international fame on CBS’s highly rated Rockstar Supernova music reality show but her musical chops have been honed during years of touring and songwriting in her native South Africa, Europe and ultimately here in the states. Dilana went on to become an honorary Louisianaian through marriage and can be found visiting Houma and New Orleans on a regular basis.
