“Rancho Santa Fe teenager Jordan Perez has found a way to turn his love of music into support for a worthy cause. Jordan penned three songs inspired by his volunteer work with children at Casa de Amparo and performed them live at a Dec. 9 charity fashion show and beauty boutique at his parents’ Fairbanks Ranch home. “I fell in love with the whole organization,” said Jordan, noting he was struck by how the children acted, despite having lived through some pretty traumatic circumstances. “The kids there are the nicest, most well-behaved kids I’ve ever met,” Jordan said. “They are so happy to see volunteers and it’s such a great environment.” His songs for Casa, “Hope,” “The Journey” and “Fantasy in A Minor,” are artistically composed and you can almost hear the happy, hopeful children’s movement in them. “I am so proud,” said his mom Diane Lekven, who beams when Jordan plays. iTunes Jordan Perez "Life"”

“Rancho Santa Fe teen’s songs help support children at Casa de Amparo Rancho Santa Fe teenager Jordan Perez has found a way to turn his love of music into support for a worthy cause. Jordan penned three songs inspired by his volunteer work with children at Casa de Amparo and performed them live at a Dec. 9 charity fashion show and beauty boutique at his parents’ Fairbanks Ranch home.
