Pow, Bam! This song was inspired by the super hero strength of a 12 year old boy (Nick) as he fought for victory over a life threatening infection. Artist Levi Ware was making rounds, playing music in the pediatric unit at the hospital when he met Nick and the two wrote a song inspired by Nick’s journey.

Victory was written when Melodic Caring Project co-founder Levi Ware was making music rounds at the hospital and stopped for a visit with an especially frustrated young patient named Nick. Nick was 12 years old and battling a serious MRSA infection. He was alone for weeks in the hospital with no visitors or support from his family. He was lonely and he was angry. When Levi stepped into the room he greeted Nick and told him he was going to play him a song. “If you don’t like it,” he told Nick,“ just give me a thumbs down and I’ll leave you alone. Nick was playing a video game and didn’t acknowledge Levi’s presence. Knowing that Nick was dealing with a lot more than an infection he gave Nick the space to be frustrated and quiet. After playing a song Nick gave Levi a thumbs up, though he never made eye contact. Seeing this as a good sign Levi moved further into the room and proceded to play 3 more songs without Nick ever looking up from his video game. After the 3rd song Nick asked, “where do they come from?”
“Where do what come from?” Levi asked.
“The songs,” asked Nick.
Levi told Nick about songwriting, inspiration and how songs materialize out of your life experience or messages that need to be heard.
“I have ideas for songs,” Nick said.
“I bet you do,” said Levi, “you’ve been through a lot!” “What do you want to write about?”
“I want to write about obstacles, roadblocks and I want to write about victory,” said Nick.
So the two began writing a song together that was the beginning of what became the song Victory. All proceeds from this song will go to support the Melodic Caring Project helping bring hope, through music, to kids in hospitals around the world
