As we transition from the summer months to the crisp chill of Fall, September is the month to remember. In observance of National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, Royal C Pop, an artist management, production, and publishing company is proud to present Falyn Vega, a 17- year-old aspiring singer. With performances like singing at "Let It Go" at Radio City Hall under her belt, her story has only just begun. Falyn is here to shine, sing, and share her story as a Hodgkins Lymphoma survivor. As the face of the ‘I Am’ campaign, Falyn will perform an original song ‘I Am A Free Bird’ during the kick off event at Madison Square Garden on September 13.

“I was really excited when A Free Bird reached out to me for the “I Am” campaign,” said Falyn Vega. “I always feel really great about helping other kids in need.”

It has been a powerful 3 years of remission for Falyn and if you’re wondering where she found the strength, music and the arts are among the top of the list. She was able to find freedom from a life-threatening disease through the powers of art and she is going to take us on an amazing and inspiring journey throughout this campaign.

The process in itself has been more than exciting as collaborations were put into place to create a brilliant work of art. Royal C Pop has been working closely with A Free Bird Organization, a non-profit that provides magical opportunities in the arts for children ages 4-18 as they face their own fight against cancer. “I Am A Free Bird” is an original piece written by Godni Amir, president and founder of both A Free Bird Organization and Royal C Pop.

“We, at Royal C Pop, are committed to supporting this community of artists that has fought life-threatening illnesses,” said Godni, founder of Royal C Pop. “Our artists will be spreading their personal messages, raising awareness for childhood cancer, and healing through their creative processes.”

The collaboration also includes song production by Sony music producer Synematik, ensemble vocalists Corey Chorus and Kim Viera, who have worked with artists including Rihanna, Demi Lovato, and Lil Wayne, and was mixed and mastered by Ross Petersen, who has also worked with Bruce Springsteen, John Mayer, and the Backstreet Boys.

It doesn’t stop there, during the ‘I Am’ campaign, we will all be encouraged to participate by sharing our idea of what it means to be “A Free Bird”. With the help of social media, we will show the unique and creative ways that allow us to express ourselves while also promoting happiness and empowerment in our global community.

Board Games Are More Important Than You Think They Are

They've become a defining part of my family.

Remember when you were a kid and you'd have a family game night? Or your friends would come over and you'd open the game cabinet and play at least three different games together?

Maybe it's just me, but those are some of my best memories from my childhood. My family loves games, board games, and electronic games.

Of course, as I got older, gaming consoles like PlayStation and Wii became more and more popular. That meant that the game cabinet was opened less and less, collecting dust.

Thankfully, I live in New Jersey near the shore and Hurricane Sandy left my family with no power for five days. Sure, it was scary not having power and walking around my neighborhood seeing fallen trees or roof shingles, but we were inland enough to not have had any flood water damage.

No power also meant no PlayStation or Wii games. The gaming cabinet was opened again, this time with vigor. Now, four years later, and I still think about sitting in the dark with a flashlight playing Scrabble with my family.

That was also the week I learned how to play Yahtzee and dominated my dad in every game. My sister constantly was looking for someone to play her to Battleship. We exhausted Rummikub.

The game was already a family favorite, and that's including extended family. Family barbeques had been ending with late night games of Rummikub for at least a year by the time Sandy hit.

We were ready to strategize and crunch numbers, but after day three, we never wanted to a number ever again.

This semester, there's been a surge of board game love again in my family. My sister bought Jenga, which we are currently trying to exhaust ourselves with. My favorite board game also had a comeback: Life.

I loved this game so much that I had the SpongeBob version as a kid. I would play it with my best friend, just the two of us, playing game after game of Bikini Bottom themed Life. Now, I have a car full of "kids" that I've started to make pets in my head. I can handle having five pretend dogs, but not five pretend kids.

I don't know what it is about board games, but my family has always had an affinity for them. We've gone through our cycles of playing video games and card games, but we always come back to the classics. Maybe it's more a defining part of my family than I originally thought.
