Releases Song and Lyric Video for “Live Out Loud” With Proceeds Going Towards Cancer Research At Johns Hopkins Hospital

(Nashville, Tenn. – October 9, 2013) – Country music newcomer Maggie Sajak has released a special track called “Live Out Loud,” inspired by Muriel Walters, a 16-year-old girl battling cancer at Johns Hopkins Hospital.

This past summer, Sajak met Walters through Music is Medicine’s “Donate a Song” project, which pairs songwriters with pediatric cancer patients. After spending time with the young girl, Sajak and Michael Lord co-wrote “Live Out Loud,” a ballad about living for the moment and enjoying life no matter what it throws your way.   Sajak re-visited Muriel a few weeks later to premiere the tune for her and captured the meeting on camera, a moment that is featured in the “Live Out Loud” lyric video.
“I wanted to be able to have a positive impact on a patient’s life, and to make her smile,” Sajak said. “I also wanted to be able to inspire other patients and even those who are not suffering from cancer to lead a fuller life.”

Sajak is the fourth artist to participate in the program, which is raising awareness and money for the pediatric oncology research team at Johns Hopkins. Proceeds raised from download sales will go towards the Hospital and their cancer research initiatives. As Sajak says, “Muriel is living out loud and so should we.”

The lyric video comes after the release of Sajak’s current single, “Wild Boy.” The track is at Country radio now and can be found on iTunes here.

Sajak released her first single, “First Kiss,” when she was 16-years-old. The song was featured in two Country Music Television productions and the Hallmark Movie Channel flick, “Our Wild Hearts.” Now 18, Maggie is writing and recording music in Nashville for a full-length album, which is set for release in the spring of 2014.
