Our Inspiration <ul><li>We were inspired by Randy Pausch who gave his famous last lecture on living your childhood dreams at Carnegie Mellon University. His lecture on youtube was seen by more than 2 million people. Randy is dying of pancreatic cancer and in his lecture he spoke to his students about the importance of living their childhood dreams. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ji5_MqicxSo </li></ul>
Our Inspiration <ul><li>We were also inspired by the work of Make-A-Wish Foundation who grants the wishes of children with life-threatening illnesses. We intend to donate proceeds of this CD to Make-A-Wish Foundation. We hope that through this collaboration, we would be able to fulfil the wish of a child who wishes to be a singer by giving them the chance to be part of this project. www.makeawish.org.sg </li></ul>
