Last year Julie and myself and Francesca watched the American Idol competition and it was as the competition was coming to an endi became aware ofthe Americn Idol Song writing competition that was also going on.

I was alerted is Facbook that in fact one of the song writers was a man who had a daughter with Angelman Syndrome. And so I listened to his song time of your life and along with many others voted to support this song. This man is song writer Regie Hamm. His song received the most votes and was recorded by David Cook the winner of the 2008 American Idol. This song has gone on to become Platinum - the song was even featured at the 2008 Olympic Games. Regie has recently releaseda video clip - Full Circle which talks about the background to the song. Time of my life is a song that talks about his journey with his daugher Isabella and his family, it is a song from the heart. Here is a clip of that and also David Cook singing the song. Listen to closely to the words or the song they certainly resonated with in my Journey with Elijah and I am sure it will resonate with the lives of other AS Families. I have become friends with Regie and am blessed and inspired with his support of the Foundation for Angelman Syndrome Theraputics - Listen enjoy and be inspired by Time of my Life.

Here is the song and the lyrics

Enjoy - peace be with you

I didn't realize the song had become so successful and was even featured at the Olympic Games.

I'm glad people like Regie are helping to spread the word and make people more aware of AS.
