Charity Suffereth Long and is Kind

I am taking a break from Halloween songs today. Please check out Halloween Playlist below for 31 alternative party songs.

My friend's sister has been out and about amazing people again. Tuesday, Martha Stewart was tweeting about her at TEDMED.

She also made it to the Wall Street Journal.

Dr. Sanjay Gupta's blog:

and CNN earlier this year:

Charity has idiopathic pulmonary hypertension, swelling her heart to a dangerous size, which has caused her incredible problems, endangered her health and life, and her singing career only exacerbated the issue. She eventually had an emergency double-lung transplant and was in a coma for a month as her body healed and adjusted to the new lungs. Miraculously, her vocal cords were still in tact and she is back to performing.

I met Charity a few years ago in D.C. when she was still sick, and it is so wonderful that she is back to singing again. I'm sure you will agree she is supremely talented.
Here are a few links to her performances.
