Wish Gets the Up-Close-and-Personal R&B Treatment

  • Wish kid Chris meets his favorite musical idol Ne-Yo.

  • Two hour jam session in Burbank.

  • Chris learning the tools of the trade.

  • Relaxing after the jam session.

  • Chris was eager to hear what his idol had to say.

“ None of us will live forever, but our art and our songs will – so keep writing. ”


- Ne-Yo to Chris after the wish experience.

While Chris spent time in the hospital, he had the time to explore and refine his song-writing talents with the help of a music therapist.

All the while writing lyrics and putting down tracks on his iPad, he was inspired by his musical idol – Ne-Yo. Chris' wish to meet Ne-Yo resulted in a two-hour musical jam session in Burbank….listening both to Chris' tracks and several un-released Ne-Yo songs.

Chris had wore a stunning smile during his wish. ”
