Dear friends, I wanted to say thanks once again to everyone who came out to see me play last Saturday at Luguo Cafe.  I was especially happy to hold this performance in honor of my good friend Kaiwei (seen at right) who sang two songs with me; "More than I can say" written by my brother Kyle and "Fortunate Child" written by myself with help from Kaiwei.  "Fortunate Child" is the first song that I helped to create including Chinese lyrics.
"Fortunate Child' - performed here for the first time - was written for Alan.  Two and a half years ago, I visited Kaiwei's friends, Joseph and Regina (their English names), in Hualien; they housed us, fed us and showed us around.  Regina was about 8 months pregnant with Alan at the time, so we wrote the song as a thank you.

I also want to express my sincere gratitude to everyone who donated money on my behalf in order to help me to continue with my musical endeavors.  I began my studies at Ming Chuan University this week and as a student am not allowed to work, so the money that was donated will help to pay for rehearsal time, instrument repairs and - eventually - my first CD.  But, to remember that my goal in making music is not simply about being successful, becoming famous or making money, I donated a portion of that money to another worthy cause. 
I make music because I love it and because I have something to share with the world.  It's also my goal to use my abilities and this music to make the world better if only in a small way.  
Brent D. Scheihagen
