Candice Russell Make a Young Girls Dream Come True
Candice Russell and seven year-old Make-A-Wish recipient Baybeblue Campobasso.
Seven year-old Baybeblue Campobasso always dreamed of starring in a music video, and thanks to Make-A-Wish Oregon, that dream has come true with the just-released music video for Candice Russells song, So Much More - which stars Blue and her family.

Blue, who is battling a severe neuromuscular disorder and relies on a wheelchair, loves watching music videos on YouTube and swaying to the rhythm, says her mom, Cyndy Ledoux, and the healing properties of music bring her joy.
"It's an honor for me to do this, says Candice. "The family is amazing watching them handle all the obstacles with grace.
Candice has handled more than a few obstacles of her own. As a teenager, she was diagnosed with Graves' Disease, an immune system disorder similar to hyperthyroidism. She received treatment, but medications led to complications. And while she still deals with challenges as a result, she's determined not to let it hold her back. The songs on her debut album reflect major moments in her journey, which haven't always been easy. She collaborated with producer Dave Lubben (Kutless, Rachel Chan) and her brother, Aaron Russell, to write all ten of So Much Mores original songs, telling her story and providing inspiration to all that listen.
