The Tour of smiles

CanJoe*John, the "world's most unique musician, plays the world's most unique musical instrument, the canjoe." Awarded the adult 2007 "Bluegrass Instrumentalist of the Year" by the North American Country Music Association International (NACMAI), and having the distinction of being the first and only canjoe picker to ever perform on the Grand Ole Opry, he has literally taken his one-stringed thing, his canjoe musical instrument, to the outer limits!


The Tour of Smiles is an ongoing musical tour of specialty children's hospitals, mostly located in the state of Tennessee, providing entertainment and distributing the donations of musical instruments to directly benefit patients and their family members under the care of these hospitals.


Originally established to provide musical entertainment and donated musical instruments to children in hospitals to use as "smile therapy". Remains as an ongoing effort to encourage everyone to view and to share among others all the positive values of love, compassion, giving, and the healing power of smiles.

Sing Me a Story

The Sing Me a Story Foundation combines the imaginations of children in hospitals, children's homes, vulnerable youth organizations and hospices with the talents of songwriters to create stories and songs that bring joy to all those involved.


1. Children in hospitals, children's homes, vulnerable youth organizations and hospices around the world are given the opportunity to write and illustrate stories about ANYTHING they want.


2. Those stories are then distributed to our SMAS Songwriters through www.SingMeAStory.org who view the stories, turn them into songs, record them and send them back to the children by uploading them back to the site.


3. Furthermore, the SMAS Songwriters create a SMAS Jukebox Campaign for each song they upload in an effort to raise money for the Partnering Organizations and Sing Me a Story.

"Nashville’s non-profit organizations strengthened by volunteer musicians are better able to provide good services to the community."

The mission is to pair Nashville musicians with non-profit organizations to help raise awareness and support for the services they provide. As a result a new platform for artist promotion, performance, and development is created.  By donating their talents to the community, the participating musicians can directly make an impact as the catalysts for change in Music City.

Fabrizio and the Fever is the featured Songs-4-Cause act at Creativity Moves Nashville 2013!
