Continued from Santa Bret Delivers a Christmas Miracle in the Bahamas

Yesterday, I met some of the greatest people in the world – no egos, no politics, no noise pollution, just solutions & the will to get things done. I want to thank all of our amazing friends in the #Bahamas for their hospitality. I especially want to also thank The Paradise Fund and Operation Airdrop, as well as our veterans & volunteers for their relentless efforts. I asked to help them out in any way that I could, telling them to put me to work – and THEY DID PUT ME TO WORK! It was AWESOME! Keep visiting BretMichaels.com and check out all of our socials for the continued story as we venture to Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic MERRY CHRISTMAS!

On a rare day off during his sold out 2014 tour, Michaels, NBC’s Celebrity Apprentice, winner during its highest rated season, brought his busses, band and crew to Pilger Nebraska to physically assist in the clean-up efforts in the wake of the destruction caused by the twin EF4 tornadoes that destroyed Pilger and several surrounding towns on June 16th 2014. Michaels along with his band and crew wasted no time jumping in with the community to move and clean up debris, Bret a life-long diabetic also took time to meet and talk with many of the residents and speak to the media with the intention of spreading awareness and encourage others to pitch in.

Prompted by the affects that the tragedy had on his sisters who live in the area, one which served at Offutt Air Force Base, Bret an avid philanthropist whose LIFE ROCKS foundation is instrumental in donating to Diabetes, Cancer, Veterans and Pets and many other charitable causes, was so affected by what he’d seen during his stop in Pilger on June 23rd, that he decided instantly to put on a mega concert in the area in hopes of raising thousands of dollars to aid in the relief of the devastation caused by June 16th 2014’s twin tornados.

Music Legend Bret Michaels now lives up to his promise and invites everyone to participate in rebuilding what has been lost, by attending this spectacular event on Sunday Aug 24th at the Devent Center in Norfolk Nebraska. Michaels will be bringing a huge stage show and performing all the Poison hits as well as his solo hits and music from his number one rated TV shows, including his new single A Beautiful Soul, which has over 4 million unique you tube views and debuted at number 2 in the new music charts earlier this year. Tickets are on sale now and are available through ETix (https://www.etix.com/ticket/servlet/s/38106727). Come help make a difference.

TeamBretMichaels.com / LifeRocksFoundation.org story: A daughter’s compassion makes a mother’s dream come true

TeamBretMichaels.com / LifeRocksFoundation.org story: A daughter’s compassion makes a mother’s dream come true

Hello,

My name is Jessica Babcock. I am 16 years old and am writing in hopes you will help my moms dream come true. She is a HUGE Bret Michaels fan-she has seen him 6x all over the place including Tampa FL where she was in the frontrow!

I write because my mom is a young widow. My dad John died a few years ago from a massive heart attack, we found him collapsed in our bathroom where he hit his head. He was in good health and just passed a physical for his job. He had no health conditions. My mom has since raised my sister Belle (age 10 now) and I all alone. She has been my best friend and is the most patient understanding person. I developed severe PTSD after my dad’s death and have many Drs appts. My dad used to take my mom to Bret concerts!

Then shortly after his passing my cousin, my mom’s nephew PFC Michael Demarsico was killed in Afghanastan- (8/16/12) he was just 21. He stepped on an IED. My mom kept the family together – controlled the media and was the family rock. I know my dad is with Michael now. At the Bret Michaels concert the following weekend she cried through the entire set when Bret kept talking about our soldiers.

Through this all my mom has NEVER complained. I do hear her cry at night a lot, but she never shows it to anyone. My mom is a dance teacher and she just started a program for special ed children to dance! She just worked with a teen with MS – she choreographed a special dance from a chair – the entire audience was crying and on their feet. She gives to the community and kids- she also directs theater and works with children who can’t afford to participate and does it for free. My mom is amazing.

I would really like to make my mom’s dream come true and take her to a Bret Michaels concert. She NEVER does anything for herself it is always about my sister and I. This would put a smile on her face – even if just for 1 night.

Jessica Babcock

**********

Patrick,

I don’t even know where to begin with thanking you and Bret for last night.
I had such an amazing time meeting Bret and enjoying the concert. Bret
seemed to really like my little one Belle right from the moment he saw her
while he was performing – he picked her right out while we were backstage.
She thought it was great he called her sweet baby and waved to her on stage
while we were on the side of the stage and then shook her hand. But of
course it was the after the show meet and greet that was just unbeatable.

People always say what you see on television is always fake, but not with
Bret, he is truly genuine and the conversation we had was sincere and just
overwhelming. I feel like a burden has been lifted off my shoulders. We talked about many things and my daughter captured some photos that are just amazing you can see the passion in his eyes to know he really means what he says. He talked to Jessie about her letter as well. He then told Belle she reminded her of Jorga! And gave her a special guitar pick from his pocket. She was so excited. He of course signed the photos we brought, which I had taken in Tampa Florida at Busch Gardens (which he loved and asked me to send to you. He signed my Bret Michaels Doll, drum stick (from Tampa) and show poster. He was just patient and kind.

Patrick- you have been outstanding dealing with my daughter and I during
this. You are to be commended. You have really made my dream come true. I
know you mentioned wanting to share some of this on the website, you do have
my permission to use what you would like. I am just so impressed with Bret,
you and his entire company and the level of professionalism. I have been
sharing it all over facebook (I have thousands of followers due to my dance
teaching and theater company so I am getting lots of comments and positive
likes!!!) I am attaching some photos of Bret with the girls and I from
last night!

Kristina Kennedy- Babcock

Any time my brother Eric Doyle and I have a chance to catch Bret Michaels in town we go. Bret always puts on a great show and we don’t mind driving a hand full of hours to see him. This time we drove from northern Kentucky to Indianapolis because Bret and his band were playing a show at the Indy 500 speedway where there was over 100,000 people . After Bret’s band performed another amazing set we got to meet him after the show. Bret is one of the coolest nicest and most down to earth rockers that you could ever want to meet . We can’t wait to see him again soon.

Mark Doyle and Eric Doyle
