Sólo Cantar
In Memory of Luis Felipe Romero Jr.

Sólo Cantar is a concert and celebration of life for my father, Luis Felipe Romero Jr., who died from complications related to Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) on June 20th, 2016. We are so grateful for the work of the ALS Association North Carolina Chapter. Through one of the hardest times for our family, we received help from their Loan Equipment Program, support navigating dad's care, and a connection with the Multidisciplinary ALS Clinic at Duke. Their work supports people living with ALS and their families, as well as medical research to end this devastating disease.

Join our family and friends for this event benefiting the ALS Association, North Carolina Chapter, and help us reach our goal of raising $30,000 for research and support for a complicated and  devastating disease. 

Thanks to the magic of Brevan Hampden Music Productions, LeLaina Romero and a beautiful community of musicians and storytellers will      celebrate her dad and bring Sólo Cantar to life—first on the stage at PSI Theatre and again with DJ Gemynii in Semans Gallery!
