The newly-engaged musician has teamed up with the Donate a Song project – a program of Music is Medicine, an organization co-founded by 19 year-old Princeton sophomore Leora Friedman when she was a junior in high school. The project aims to encourage celebrities to write and record an original song for their fans who are seriously ill.
Drew met and wrote “Fly” in honor of Brooke Shockley, a 14 year-old girl suffering from osteosarcoma bone cancer.
After Skyping with Brooke, Drew was inspired to write the track, which for Brooke was “the best birthday present ever.”
The I Kissed A Vampire costars and longtime couple just got engaged over the weekend!
Drew posted on his Facebook, “So as I’m sure many of you know, I proposed to my wonderful and amazing girlfriend, Amy Paffrath last night. And she actually said YES!! (Whew!) If you were there, THANK YOU for helping me keep the secret, and if you’ve sent us a message, THANK YOU for the good wishes. I couldn’t be happier, but my head is spinning a little so forgive me if I don’t get back to everyone right away. Here it is for your viewing pleasure. Isn’t she beautiful??!! Lucky me ;)”
Amy tweeted, “Thank you all SO much for the well wishes! @drewseeley and I are thrilled about our engagement and feel so loved. Xoxo #Heputaringonit”
Congrats to the happy couple!
FYI: Amy and Drew are also pictured at the Vanity Fair, L’Oréal Paris & Fiat-hosted D.J. Night and OK! Mag’s Pre-Oscar Bash late last week.
The rock musical’s summary: Haunted by bizarre dreams about Goth rocker Trey Sylvania (Seeley), and experiencing a growing lust for blood, Dylan (Grabeel), a not-so-average teenager finds himself transforming into a vampire! It all started when he was bitten by a voracious fanged exchange student, and it’s a process he is desperate to stop – but how?
His demented dentist can’t do anything about Dylan’s aching teeth and emerging fangs, and the anti-bloodsucking pills he gets from his para-psychologist just give him a rash. Dylan is terrified and he doesn’t know what to do – especially about his beautiful girlfriend Sara (Adrian Slade).
