The Songs of Love Foundation has roots right here at the Jersey Shore!

We had the pleasure of meeting Richard Berardi of MRB Records. He is the Vice President of Songs of Love, an amazing non-profit that writes personal, original songs for kids and teens facing tough medical, physical, or emotional challenges.

When we had Richard (who has a recording studio right here in Monmouth County) on our show this past summer, he described what he does as the 'medicine of music' for these heroic children.

Each CD is professionally produced with lyrics containing the child's name and references to his or her favorite activities, things, people, and pets. Songs are written and performed in any language in the musical style that the child likes best (kids, pop, rock, etc.)

Since each child is unique, so is every 'song of love' composition.

Since 1996 the Songs of Love Foundation has reached over 31,000 children in over 500 hospitals and health care facilities in all 50 states and around the world.
