“Taylor Swift made me want to start singing,” Hosmer said in the Norristown-based Rotation Records.
Over the summer Hosmer wrote a song called “This Camp” at the Ronald McDonald Camp and her mother posted a video of her singing it to the Facebook page that was created to help Hosmer meet Swift.
Joe Staiber, who co-owns Rotation Records with Tom Jensen, was contacted by a teacher in Plymouth Meeting who volunteers at the Ronald McDonald Camp and knows Hosmer.
“She thought that since we are a record company we could contact Taylor Swift and get her to come meet Amy,” Staiber said.
Hats off to the many people who have taken this opportunity to make a difference:
Sue, a Ronald McDonald Camp counselor who took Amy shopping for clothes for her recording session.
Rosalie Hetrick and Maria Jacobs, two other counselors, who organized the after-party.
The friends, family members, and supporters at the red-carpet party and on Facebook.
Amy’s classmate Katelyn and her mom Renee, who volunteered to get their hair cut to make Amy a wig. Some of Katelyn’s cousins are also donating their hair so there is enough for a full wig.
Amy’s teacher, Sandy Hager, who held fundraisers for the family and got T-shirts that say “Supporting Amy” for the entire fifth grade. A photo of the class wearing the shirts will be enlarged for Amy’s hospital room.
