Songs of Love

Forest Hills-based Songs of Love Foundation gets a nice plug in the Daily News today. The foundation writes personalized, original songs for chronically ill children. Today’s article highlights one such child, Tyler Adams, whose song was written by actor Paul Dano.

Throughout two surgeries to fight a brain tumor that blurred her vision and gave her headaches, 14-year-old Tyler Adams always had a bright outlook – and now the Long Island girl is a regular “Little Miss Sunshine.”

Paul Dano, who played Dwayne, the intentionally mute wanna-be pilot, in the 2006 hit movie, wrote and recorded a “song of love” for Tyler in Queens Thursday.

“It’s a nice way to help somebody out and lift their spirits. Hopefully, she’ll smile,” said Dano, 23.

Dano’s tribute – produced through the Forest Hills-based Songs of Love Foundation – is especially sweet for Tyler, who saw “Little Miss Sunshine” months before doctors found tumors near her pituitary gland in January.

The eight-grader, who was at home in Freeport recovering after marathon surgeries on March 22 and April 8, said she was excited when she found out Wednesday that Dano, whose character made her cry at the end of the movie, was lending his voice to a special CD being recorded just for her.
