“Years ago I wrote a song called “Memphis,” and sang it on the radio with Dr. Drew. A man named Memphis was listening to my song from a federal prison cell. That night changed both of our lives forever. So moved by the song, Memphis decided to get sober and change his life when paroled. He is now a personal friend and inspiration to me and countless others. Since achieving freedom, Memphis has been an exceptional student at Chemical Dependency college and faced overwhelming adversity including staying sober through a harrowing battle with cancer as well as the horrible restrictions and stigma of being a convicted felon. Through the years, I have been amazed by his enormous determination and optimism. Due to his prior life and convictions coupled with his battle with cancer, Memphis, like many other Americans has found it difficult to find gainful employment while achieving his ultimate goal of becoming a certified addiction counselor. While I can help him once he graduates, I think we all can help now. Lets get together and make sure that Memphis has a warm and loving home for the Christmas holiday.”
