Flame (The Band) - July 4, 2009, 09:36 AM

If you know anyone who is mentally or physically handicapped, read on ...

This is a super story that I think is going to gain national media attention soon ...

I'm originally from a very small town in upstate NY. Like many states, the county has a center for the physically and mentally handicapped. Growing up, I had a friend who's brother had down's syndrome, so I was familiar with the center. I knew they did good work there, and they had a great reputation. I remember them running a pretty big "Special Olympics" each year.

Anyway, I was home this week and saw the center's band for the first time... "Flame". It's comprised of all handicapped band members (the drummer is blind, the lead singer has autism, etc) ... I couldn't believe what I saw ... and they were fantastic!

Within a few minutes of watching and listening to them I thought, "this band needs to be on TV ... a video documentary" ... and when I got home, I googled them ... it's already in the works by a DC based production company.

Check out the site:

Listen to a few of their downloadable .mp3's ... bottom right of this page:

What a fantastic story!

I may upload some of the video I made of them when I get back week, if I have time.
