"Singing For A Cure"
 
If you have heard of Cystic Fibrosis but don't really know what the disease actually is or does (many people do not), please give this a read. Although it's getting longer every day, the average age for someone with CF to live is 38. This .pdf also explains the purpose of Rose’s 2016/2017 ‘Adding Tomorrows’ Mall Tour. You can view it HERE.

Rose Ostrowski Releases “Your Words” to Benefit Charity
Berwick PA- (4/12/2017)  Rose Ostrowski of Berwick, PA might only be 12 years old but her passion and devotion for singing and recording music shows signs of a much older individual. The young talent is proud to announce the release her third single, a rendition of ‘Your Words’. All of the proceeds from purchasing the single will benefit the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, a charity that is determined to find a cure for cystic fibrosis, the disease that took her cousin back in 2012.
   ‘Your Words’ was originally released by the band Third Day in 2015. The song by the Christian rock band caught Rose’s attention during her latest mall tour and she immediately knew that it must be her next single for her to record.
    “I heard the song and immediately loved it. I knew that it was the song that could be changed up a little bit to match what I had planned for it in my head and it all worked out”, she said.
    Ostrowski worked with Bill Leverty on the single. Leverty, a well known producer, recording engineer and guitarist for the band FireHouse, heard the song for the first time and fell in love with the way that Ostrowski had sung it at one of her shows.
   Leverty said, "Rose has an amazing tone and command of her voice. Most of all, she sings with great emotion and nuance. I would characterize her vocal talent as exceptional. Her performance of 'Your Words' is absolutely stunning."
   He honored Ostrowski’s request to create a unique spin on the song, using more of a contemporary electronic production. With that, he mixed in plenty of Ostrowski’s harmonies and the end result is very impressive to say the least. 
   Ostrowski’s version of the song is available on iTunes, Amazon, CD Baby Google Play, Spotify and just about any digital music download provider.
   Prior to the release of ‘Your Words’, Rose released a cover of The Beatles hit ‘Let it Be’ in 2012. Two years later she went on to record a cover of Tesla’s ‘Life is a River’. In both cases, all of the song download proceeds went to the foundation. In 2015 she kicked off her first annual “Adding Tomorrows” Mall Tour, and she recently finished her second annual tour, which benefited the same cause.

Rose Ostrowski’s Second Annual ‘Adding Tomorrows’ Mall Tour Comes to a Close
Berwick, PA (1/28/2017) - For the last five months twelve year old Rose Ostrowski of Berwick, PA has been on an area mall tour to help raise awareness and donations for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Her last show was Saturday afternoon at the Marketplace at Steamtown in Scranton and with her second annual “Adding Tomorrows” Mall Tour in the books the young lady helped raised $2,000 for the charity since her tours inception.
   Cystic fibrosis is a genetic disease that attacks the respiratory system. As a result of suffering with it, Rose’s cousin, Camillia passed away from the disease in 2012. Shortly after and at 8 years of age, Rose recorded a cover of ‘Let it Be’ and two years later she recorded another cover, called ‘Life is a River’. All of the proceeds from those song downloads are donated to the foundation as well.
   “She was so much more comfortable this year than last year”, said Rose’s mother, Jeralyn Ostrowski.
   “It’s amazing how much the experience itself has helped her grow”. We can’t thank all of the mall managers and business relations people at those facilities for inviting Rose back this year. Many, if not all have asked for her to return in the future, which was very nice to hear.”
   Rose was equally happy with her performances this year. And, unlike last year, her set list differed a bit from one stop to another.
   “Every show that I did was just a little different this year” said Rose.
   “The tour started earlier, but it also lasted longer than the last one. I met a lot of very nice people and many of them also gave donations to help find a cure for CF. I just want to say thank you to all of them that came out to support the cause.”
   Although her mall tour is complete, Rose has plans to continue through the spring and into the summer. She was recently invited to perform at the CF Foundation’s “Great Strides Walk”, which will take place at Montage Mountain on Saturday, May 13. Festival, car show and charity performances are also in motion. Those dates will be announced in the near future.
   If things go as planned, Rose will be back in the recording studio soon to record her third single.
   She would like to thank all of the bands, musicians, radio, and print and internet media for helping with spreading the word regarding her mission over the last four years. Many of which include Bill Leverty and the members of FireHouse, WARRANT, Abi Ann, Stryper, Roger Fisher (formerly of Heart), Tesla, James Beier of Beier Drums, Bricklin, Josette Miles, Melissa Krahnke and Leighann Burke.
 
Youngsters Popular ‘Adding Tomorrows’ Mall Tour Wrapping Up
Berwick, PA (12/31/16)- For the second straight year, 12 year old Rose Ostrowski of Berwick, PA has been out performing at area malls to help raise donations and awareness for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. The passing of her cousin, Camillia Stiller, who suffer from Cystic Fibrosis, is what prompted Rose’s fund raising efforts back in 2012. The youngsters ‘Adding Tomorrows’ Mall Tour kicked off in September following a hectic summer filled with performances at festivals, car shows, charity events and senior living homes.
   With only two more mall dates remaining on her schedule, Rose is ready to take a short break to possibly record another single before she performs at the CF Foundation’s Great Strides Walk at Montage Mountain on Saturday, May 13.
   The remaining events are slated for Saturday, January 14 at the Laurel Mall in Hazleton at 2 PM and also at the Marketplace at Steamtown on Saturday, January 28 at 3 PM.
   Over the last two years, the live mall performances not only helped collect close to $2,000 for the foundation, but they also helped the young lady gain more experience through performing often in front of an audience. After all, experience is everything, no matter the age.  
   Ostrowski recently performed at a private holiday party for Allentown business owner, Randy Seidel. Seidel is the President & CEO of GIS, a global manufacturer and supplier of newspaper and commercial printing equipment, parts, service and consolidation services.
   The invitation to the gala event was much of a surprise to the young artist, who began sewing her musical journey at age 8 when she met with producer Bill Leverty of the band FireHouse and recorded a cover of The Beatles hit “Let it Be’.
   It wasn’t the fact that her annual mall tour benefit the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation or that numerous rock-n-roll bands and musicians dug what she has done in her young musical career. Instead, it was her maturing and melodic voice that drew Seidel to Ostrowski’s show at the South Mall in Allentown this past November.
   “I heard this incredible voice and I went running to it. I thought, ‘I have to follow that voice and went looking for this tall person’ and then, ‘oh my God, it was this little girl, Rose”, noted Seidel during his introduction to her song set during his December function.
   Her performance that evening featured ‘Wind Beneath My Wings’, Listen to Your Heart’ and ‘Hallelujah, which was part of Baylee Kish’s Christmas surprise. Kish is Seidel’s six year old granddaughter.
   With Ostrowski’s mall tour coming to an end, she’ll continue to perform through the spring and into the summer, with hopes of landing more opportunities to help benefit not only the CF Foundation, but also opportunities to help further her passion for music and related arts.

   “This is the second year that she’s done this and it’s not only for a great cause but the experience that she’s getting from it is exceptional. Each and every show so far has had its own memorable moments, from celebrities that she has met, to people wanting her photo, or for her to come perform elsewhere.”
   It’s been a memorable year for the young lady, who had her 2012 cover of “Let it Be” hit No. 1 on the iTunes Top 200 in Paraguay over the summer. The same weekend she performed with the iconic rock band, WARRANT and at the Historic Bethlehem Society’s annual Blueberry Festival in July. All of those events alone took place in the same week.
   “She was invited to sing the National Anthem at several events this year and did a great job”, noted her father.
   “A year ago she wouldn’t have even considered doing it. She said the song is just too special and she didn’t want to take the risk of messing it up.”  
   The mall earnings are donated to the CF Foundation through Rose’s Great Strides Team. This year’s Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Great Strides Walk in her area is at Montage Mountain on Saturday, May 13. Aside from doing so at the mall shows, anyone can donate and/or join her team by following the link on her website.

Rose Ostrowski Preparing Second Annual “Adding Tomorrows” Mall Tour
Berwick, PA (8/9/2016)- Last year 12 year old Rose Ostrowski of Berwick, PA launched her first annual “Adding Tomorrows” Mall Tour. She set out to sing and perform at several Pennsylvania shopping malls to help raise hope, awareness and donations for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
 
Thanks to several malls that she had performed at last year, Rose was able to collect over $600 in donations and she recently received an additional $850 for her efforts for helping to find a cure for cystic fibrosis, the disease that took her 21 year old cousin, Camillia Stiller in 2012.
 
Although she just turned 12, Ostrowski isn’t exactly a newcomer to the music scene. In November of 2012 she released a cover of the Beatles’ tune ‘Let it Be’. Another single followed in January of 2015. The second single, called ‘Life is a River’ was originally released by the band Tesla in January of the same year.
 
The proceeds generated from purchases of those two cover singles are also donated to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation in her cousin’s memory. All of the donations are contributed to the foundation through Rose’s Cystic Fibrosis Foundation Great Strides Walk team.
 
Although she’s known locally for her talent and charitable efforts, Rose is also known world-wide, thanks to many members of the media, Internet radio and of course social media. Over the last four years she’s received a lot of support from local television, newspapers and radio. Several popular musicians and bands such as WARRANT, Stryper, FireHouse, Roger Fisher (formerly of Heart), Melissa Krahnke, Josette Miles and country star, Abi Ann  have also helped spread the word regarding Rose’s projects. Many others have as well, and most recently, Tesla shared it with their fans after hearing Rose’s cover of their song from a relative of theirs.
 
In July of this year, WARRANT invited Rose to perform live with them on stage at the Sherman Theater’s Summer Stage in Mount Pocono. Despite having butterflies the entire day, Rose rocked the stage with WARRANT when they sang ‘Heaven’ from their Dirty Rotten Filthy Stinking Rich Album. The popular song topped out at number two on the 1989 Billboard top 100 charts.
 
Shorty after her performance with the kind hearted rockers, Rose and her family found out that her cover of ‘Let it Be’ was atop the iTunes top 200 charts in Paraguay of all places.
 
“That was something that was a huge surprise”, said Rose.
 
“My mom and dad were like, ‘No way’, and after checking out other charts, it was true.”
 
She continued, “That was a great week for me. First, singing with WARRANT, who I enjoy and listen to often and then to have the song that I did when I was 8 go to number one in a totally different country was definitely awesome.”
 
Both of her singles were recorded, engineered and mastered by Bill Leverty. Leverty is a solo artist from Richmond, VA. He is also the guitarist from the popular rock band, FireHouse, who received an AMA Award in 1992.
 
Rose is excited to kick off her annual mall tour in September and it’ll continue through the end of January.
 
“Everyone at the malls last year was really nice and pretty great. I had a good time and it was nice to see some of the people that came out to more than one mall too.” she said.
 
Several area shopping malls showed excitement when they heard that she was booking mall dates for this season. Although more may be added to her schedule, just a handful of the Pennsylvania malls that she will perform at include the Laurel Mall in West Hazleton, The Columbia Mall in Buckhorn, The South Mall in Whitehall and the Lehigh Valley Mall. Other dates will be announced in the near future.
