Music for Brandee Mitchell

His name is Kent Mitchell, and he’s pictured with his daughter, Brandee, who’s only 33 years old. Brandee has been through a LOT of life – including that jerk cancer that just won’t seem to go away. Her parents have been loving, amazing, people throughout everything and moved her back to Hudson, WI, to stay with them as a last ditch effort to get more treatment and hopefully save her life.

Unfortunately, that effort has come to an end and Brandee is in home hospice. One thing we at CakeIn15 thought we could help with is music. Music is full of memory, emotion, love, loss, comfort, and joy.

We’ve asked a handful of various musicians to come with us tomorrow to celebrate Brandee’s life and play some music for her as her journey fades.

Kent asked me to put up this lovely tune recorded by Ben Kyle and dedicated to Brandee, so he could share it with friends on Facebook.

    Thank you Stacy and Carl for setting this up. Thank you Shawn Gibbons, Chris Koza, and Jeremy Messersmith for playing by my daughters bedside days before she passed. Thanks to Ben Kyle for sending a song along and to Niki Becker for the video. These were all so appreciated by all of us!. Thanks to all the other musicians, who replied they had previous commitments, doing what they do best, making music for others to enjoy. My daughter enjoyed the bedside house concerts immensely, taking with her the sounds of your music. This was a wonderful thing!
