Simply Together

Hi friends, fans, and fellow artists, I am very excited to have recorded one of my newest originals SIMPLY TOGETHER in Nashville this past June with some of Taylor Swift's musicians, Nick Buda and Tim Marks, along with Shawn Byrne formerly of Rodney Atkins Band. The same musicians are putting instrumentals to two more of my originals which I will record in the near future. Would love you to give Simply Together a listen and be watching for the Music Video to Simply Together, that I recently shot with filmmaker Bruno Fioravanti who came all the way from Brazil to shoot this video to my song! He is planning on coming back to do another music video to another one of my songs this winter! Thanks for the continued support, Hope you enjoy my Simply Together, lyrics/music written by my age 14, recorded age 15 in Nashville June 2011. Your friend in music Charissa Mrowka

PLEASE SUPPORT MY CAUSE!

Hi friends and fans, I have a new single titled "HOLD ON AND BREATHE" just released on CD BABY http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/charissamrowka/from/SSRCINC and soon to surface on iTUNES. This song was adopted by the AFSP (AMERICAN FOUNDATION OF SUICIDE PREVENTION) as an uplifting song to help people with suicidal intensions. I have joined together with Lynn Carey Saylor, writer of the song and my record label, Guitar Girls Records, to DONATE PORTIONS OF PROCEEDS FROM ALL PURCHASES on CD BABY and iTUNES, DIRECTLY TO AFSP to help the cause. This project has special meaning to me and I am doing this in memory of my dear friend and dance instructor, Laura Maceika, who took her own life last year at only age 21. I miss her and hope my song can help someone else with suicidal intensions. In addition to donating ALL of my portion of the proceeds to the cause, I will be performing this song LIVE at the AFSP Annual Fundraising Benefits, at my own expense. PLEASE HELP SUPPORT THIS SPECIAL CAUSE BY PURCHASING, "HOLD ON AND BREATHE" on CD BABY or iTUNES now! Thanks so much for your support! Charissa Mrowka
