News: Chris Cagle Makes A Young Girls Dream Come True As Prom Date

May 8, 2008

NASHVILLE, Tennessee (May 8, 2008)—Capitol Recording artist Chris Cagle
made one young lady’s dream come true and an entire community embrace
her story.  Chris accompanied Miss Danielle “Bella” Romeo to the prom
held this past weekend at the Victoria Community Center, Victoria

“Bella is an extraordinary young lady,” Chris introduced.  Since the
age of thirteen, Miss Romeo has suffered from a rare seizure disorder. 
“This is not just one rare illness, the doctors say Bella ‘endures a
rainbow of seizures’ and the cause is unknown–unidentified,” Chris

A patient at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN, Bella’s life-threatening
condition is being reviewed a team of fifty neurologists. Her
treatments have caused her to gain weight; she cannot drive, nor attend
public school.

Bella and her mother were introduced to Chris at a benefit concert
(October 2007) by the event chairpersons, Jim Babcock and Anna-Leigh
London.  (Chris trains and boards his horses at the Babcock Ranch in
Texas.)  “Bella was so weakened by the lights, she could not make it
through the entire show,” Chris said.  “My heart went out to her.”  On
May 3, Chris Cagle brought joy and “life” back into Bella’s heart.

Chris accompanied the 17 year-old, tenth grader to the Junior/Senior
prom.  (The high school made a special exception for her to attend.)
Bella wore a pink strapless custom-made, one-of-a-kind, ball gown and
Chris wore a suit jacket designed by Manuel.

“Chris, a gentlemen we hardly know, took my child by the arm, and I
could see it in his eyes, his honor in the moment,” Bella’s mom, Nipal
Corder, said. “This is a ‘forever’ moment for my daughter and a
blessing not only to her, but our entire community.  The community’s
response to this man’s kindness has been overwhelming.  I believe Chris
was a gift in our lives, I believe he blessed this child and our
community who has embraced this story.  He’s given strength and unity
to me and Bella and our entire community.”

The evening ended with a limo drive home.  Chris’ single “Wal-Mart
Parking Lot” is now on the ballot to be considered as the graduating
senior theme song.

“Danielle was the ‘Belle’ of the ball, and I thank her for an
unforgettable evening and the honor,” Chris said.
