Military Brat Caylea Ingram recently won a songwriting competition on the myairforcelife.com website. The song is called My Life.
Caylea is 14 years old and has been creating her own musical compositions since she was 7 years old.
A family friend mentioned there was a competition for an original song about what it is like to be in an Air Force family, and her parents encouraged her.
According to Caylea, “When I create, it’s really neat because I hear the music immediately. Then it’s a lot of work to actually make it into physical music, music you can hear, not that just plays in my own head.”
Caylea did all the recording and production work using an iMac.
Joe Ingram, Caylea’s father, currently serving in Iraq, who is a Military Brat himself, said:
“It is a song that speaks to being a military brat and as a former brat myself, it really touched my heart. I was hoping you could post the song on your website for others to hear and enjoy.”
Thank you Joe, for your service, and for sharing your daughter’s song with us. It brought tears to my eyes when I first heard it—all Military Brats can relate to what Caylea has written and perfomed.
Congratulations Caylea. I hope we hear more from you soon.
