Kids Wish Network, Sound Devices Team Up

News Image
Children's charity Kids Wish Network recently granted the wish of teenager Joseph 'Tiger' Diamante, with the help of Guardian Angel sponsor Sound Devices, LLC.

Tiger recently received a new USBPre2, a portable hardware interface for Mac- and Windows-based digital audio.

Shortly after Tiger was born, doctors discovered his two main arteries were reversed and diagnosed him with transposition of the great vessels; a rare heart defect that changes the way blood circulates through the body and leaves a shortage of oxygen in blood flowing from the heart. At just eight-days-old, Tiger underwent his first heart surgery. Doctors were able to correct his arteries and fix the holes in his heart, leaving only a small leak at one of the valves, but last year, a test revealed that Tiger's leak had progressed to the point of needing another surgery to replace the valves in his heart. This will be scheduled in the near future.

Kids Wish Network learned about Tiger's love of making music and his dream of pursuing a career as a producer. The wish-granting charity approached Sound Devices, LLC about participating as a sponsor for Tiger's desire to own music-producing equipment. The teenager was presented with a new USBPre-2 audio interface, donated by Sound Devices, LLC at their Madison office, where the entire staff was in attendance for Tiger's celebratory party.

"Kids Wish Network is delighted to help fuel Tiger's passion for producing music and is always appreciative of our sponsor Guardian Angels who help to make our Wish Kids' dreams come true," said Executive Director of Kids Wish Network, Anna Lanzatella.

"We are always looking at ways to give back to the local community," said Matt Anderson, CEO of Sound Devices, LLC. "We were happy to provide Tiger with a USBPre-2 to help him pursue his passion for creating music. He also helps others produce their own original tracks – he is a very generous young man, paying forward. We look forward to following him as he continues to build his music career."
