On June 18th, 2011, the American Cancer Society had its Relay for Life at the Northgate Mall. This Relay for Life is a fun-filled overnight event designed to celebrate cancer survivors and to raise money for further research. During this event, teams of people gathered at schools, fairgrounds, or parks, and take turns walking or running laps. Each team tried to keep at least one team member on the track at all times.
Children in Need had the honor of performing at this event. Tyler Leswing, a member from the Apassionato Group, and an honored guest, Tony Darren, performed jazz on Northgate's outdoor stage.
Tyler composed these songs by himself and Tony accompanied him. Tyler has studied piano for many years and loves to compose songs. He is joining the Berkeley Jazz Camp and the Stanford Jazz Camp this summer. Children in Need is excited to have Tyler join the club with his exceptional talent and skills. We are also excited to have Tony, an accomplished electric guitarist, perform with Tyler. Tony is a skilled composer and has his own album, Sun Song. We are looking forward to performing with him again.
