My Positive Perspective Broadcasts Episode Informing People About the Walk For Autism Event

Charleston, SC (PRWEB) April 22, 2015

April 21, 2015, My Positive Perspective host Jason Deierlein was joined by guest Adrienne Reed. Reed is the mother of two autistic sons and is a supporter and volunteer at the walk for autism event. As the episode began, Deierlein says to Reed, What are some of the things that got you so involved in the walk for autism event? Reed answers, Sure, my oldest son was diagnosed with autism when he was 22 months old, but we knew earlier than that there was something really different with him. I quickly learned that early therapy is best, so we started occupational therapy, music therapy and speech therapy immediately.

Deierlein then asks, What have been some of the results of the therapy? Reed replies, At one time I was told that he may not talk and now he is 13 and he doesnt stop talking. Reed continues, My son is in a gifted and talented program and is doing great. I really think it is all because of early intervention. Deierlein then asks, Was he educated with other special needs children or how did that work? Reed replies, We were told that social skills are very important, so with that in mind he was mainstreamed in normal classes and had a counselor shadow him in school. This allowed him to feel and act like a normal child.

My Positive Perspective is a media outlet believing that improvement in our community will be best achieved by focusing on the good things happening in our world today. Having survived a near fatal car accident as a youth, a shift of perception forced one to have a mentality of always concentrating on the brighter sides of things. This was true, and in my book, Return From a Comatose Mind, this belief was put to the test. Appreciation for life was the biggest thing one took away from my brush with death, and it is because of that gives me such a huge desire to be helpful to many. My Positive Perspective is a way of overcoming challenges through positive thinking.

Music Health Alliance, Nashville Based Non-Profit, Announces Inaugural “First and Worst Event” Featuring Richard Leigh, Liz Rose, Phil Barton, Roxie Dean, and Wynn Varble

(PRWEB) February 23, 2015

On April 1, 2015, some of Nashvilles most recognized songwriters will come together for the inaugural “First And The Worst” charity event hosted at 3rd and Lindsley, benefitting the Music Health Alliance. The First and The Worst, which will take place at 3rd and Lindsley, will showcase hit songwriters performing the first and the worst songs they ever wrote, as well as their songs that have become top-selling records recorded by superstar artists, all for a worthy cause.

Hosted by Grammy-nominated songwriter, producer, and music critic Peter Cooper, the evening will feature Richard Leigh (Dont It Make My Brown Eyes Blue and Ill Get Over You/Crystal Gayle, The Greatest Man I Never Knew/Reba McEntire), Liz Rose (Tim McGraw, Teardrops On My Guitar, and “You Belong To Me”/Taylor Swift), Phil Barton (“A Woman Like You”/Lee Brice, She Rides Away/David Nail, Yeah Yeah Yeah/Dustin Lynch), Roxie Dean (“When I Think About Angels”/Jamie O’Neal, Why They Call It Falling/Lee Ann Womack), Wynn Varble (Waitin On A Woman/Brad Paisley, Have You Forgotten/Darryl Worley, and Im A Little More Country Than That/Easton Corbin) and others to be announced.

All event proceeds from sponsorship tables, ticket sales and the silent auction will benefit Music Health Alliance. The non-profits work assists songwriters, artists and music industry professionals in finding affordable health solutions and financial resources at every stage of their career. The mission of Music Health Alliance is to Heal the Music by providing access to healthcare through services that protect, direct & connect music professionals with medical and financial solutions. In two short years, they have saved over $ 5.5 million dollars in insurance premiums, reduction of medical bills, and prescription savings.

Tatum Hauck Allsep, MHAs Founder/Executive Director said, The First and The Worst will enable Music Health Alliance to provide life saving healthcare access to the music industry in it most vulnerable time of need. MHA is thrilled to be the beneficiary of such an incredibly clever and entertaining evening of music.

First and The Worst is the brainchild of Grammy-nominated songwriter, Sandy Knox (Does He Love You, “She Thinks His Name Was John,” and “Why Haven’t I Heard From You”/Reba McEntire and her own early gems Upchuck and Mr. Phone).

The First and The Worst is an event I have dreamed about for close to 20 yearsa night in which the audience is allowed to peek inside the brilliant minds of hit songwriters long before they had ever written a hit, explains Knox about the idea becoming a reality. And, having it benefit the Music Health Alliance makes it all about giving back to our community.

Doors to the event will open at 5:00 p.m. and the show will start at 6:30 p.m. Tickets are now available for purchase through the 3rd and Lindsley website. Tickets are $ 20 for balcony and $ 75 for reserved seating. Table sponsorships are available for $ 1,500, $ 2,000 and $ 2,500, and $ 10,000 for the title sponsorship.

For city and ticket information, or to learn more about Capture Wine Tour and the rising stars helping to bring this revolutionary new wine experience to life, visit http://www.capturewinetour.com.


Capture Artisan Wine Tour was created to introduce undiscovered wineries and unique but affordable wines to consumers outside of wine country. Many smaller, high quality wineries are now electing to bypass the national three-tier distribution system entirely and sell direct-to-consumer through their tasting rooms and wine club allocations. This means many of the countrys wonderful wines will never be represented in local wine shops or supermarkets.

Capture Wine Tour is our way of bringing a hand-curated portfolio of beautiful and otherwise unobtainable wines to the major wine consuming metros. Each vintner has agreed to open its allocation to our guests, providing an unprecedented exclusive opportunity for the individual consumer to access these hidden gem wines.


Capture Lifestyles was founded by seasoned veterans of the wine and culinary industries to create unique, memorable experiences that merge artisan wines, cuisines, spirits, and independent music. Our first project, the Capture Artisan Wine Tour, re-imagines wine tastings and delivers high-energy social events that bring together true wine lovers, cutting-edge winemakers, star chefs, and top sommeliers for a celebration of hand crafted wines paired with the best local farm-to-table cuisines each city has to offer.
