Globe University Teams With Make-A-Wish Minnesota To Help Local Girl Produce And Record Own Songs

Minneapolis, Minn. (Jan. 21, 2013) — Globe University has teamed up with Make-a-Wish Minnesota to help Wish child Sabrina achieve her dream of writing and creating her own songs. Through its affiliate school Institute of Production and Recording (IPR), Globe donated the talents of engineer Kevin Bowe, Grammy award-winning producer Steve Hodge and full access to IPR studios to record Sabrina’s songs.

Make-A-Wish Minnesota contacted Globe and IPR to help 11-year-old Sabrina realize her wish. The result is a passionate CD of sweet songs written from Sabrina’s heart. Sabrina recorded her CD over the course of several sessions at IPR studios in downtown Minneapolis. She will perform music from her new CD in front of 100 friends and family at a CD release event January 20.

Sabrina tells the story of how her wish came true in this short video, also made possible through an in-kind donation from Globe University. Globe has a long-standing relationship with Make-A-Wish Minnesota that has included volunteering, financial support and numerous service learning projects.
