Happy Independence Day 2012

independence-day-july-fourth 2012


Independence means many things to different people. To the young it means finally being on your own, free from parental control. To the old it means still being able to take care of yourself not having to be reliant on help from your children. To those who live under oppression and abuse it means liberty and freedom from captivity.

Regardless of what it means to you or where you are from, today is a day of celebration! Celebration not just because we are free to go about our daily lives, travel where we like, pursue our dreams, and set whatever goals we desire. But celebration of life and the pursuit of happiness!

This site has brought much happiness to me over the past three years and continues to be a huge blessing. I have met so many wonderful families from all over the world and have visited a number of them.

Today I want to wish all of you a very happy Independence Day! As we celebrate the birth of our Nation here in the United States I want to extend warm wishes to all of you everywhere in every continent and every nation that this site reaches!

We pray for your continued happiness, freedom, and joy as we endeavor to introduce you to the best and brightest young stars from around the Globe!

May God Bless You All!

Sensational Singing Sam Santiago

Sam Santiago Fountain Valley Festival 2012Amazing is a word that may be over used at times along with Awesome, Super, and Fantastic. However, when it comes to young singing sensation Sam Santiago, somehow they all just fit.

I recently spent a week in California visiting the Santiago Family and was privileged to follow along with Sam and his family as they went about their daily schedules.  I have to tell you that this family leads an exciting and busy life.  Of course they were not only wonderful hosts to my wife and I but it gave me an inside opportunity to see just what a fine oiled machine their family has become in order to keep up with Sam’s busy entertainment schedule.  Of course this is not even to mention Sam’s school schedule, concerts, and activities that every normal soon to be ten year old has as part of his daily life.

Our first weekend was filled with excitement right off the bat, (Pun intended), as Sam was scheduled once again to sing the National Anthem for the Minor League Storm Baseball Team game that Sunday.

We arrived early for a practice run around 11:00 am.  The field was in the grooming process and looked brilliant and colorful with fresh stripes of white outlining the bases and gorgeous green fields. Sam walked confidently to the front of the bullpen area and took the mic from our host.   What a treat to hear Sam’s young vibrant voice rattle the empty arena with his clear sounding acappella rendition of our National Anthem.  If you would like to hear and see the practice run visit Young Artists Global Facebook where that exclusive is posted.
