M’TOWN: A TAYLOR-MADE TUNE FOR A FIGHTER
This weekend, rising-star singer and songwriter Taylor Tote of Tinton Falls will be performing at an unusual venue: the “Headdens Corner” headquarters of Middletown Fire Department Company 1/ Station 8 on Route 35. It’s there that she’ll be shooting a video for her new song “Fighter,” an anthem dedicated to cancer survivors of all ages — and created with 9 year old Hannah Gorsegner, whose 6 year old sister Natalie Grace (pictured below left with Taylor and Hannah) is herself a survivor. Backing Taylor for the occasion will be a chorus of 20 kids (all of whom have waged their own battles with cancer) and an all-star assembly of local firefighters. Take it here for more background on the song and video, slated for release in September (with all profits dedicated to childhood cancer research) — and here for details on a Natalie Grace’s Wish Event fundraiser, scheduled for October 6 at Tim McLoone’s Pier House in Long Branch.
