BandPopSinger/Songwriter

The media knows Elena as the child who was smuggled into hiding and the face of one of the most highly publicized custody battles in America. After many years of silence and pain, Elena is using her voice to help others. Elena is a Los Angeles based singer/songwriter with a cd titled "Rescue Me".

Biography

Elena Mitrano, formerly Hilary Foretich was one of the most famous faces in the world by the age of five. Her story was known the world over. She was the little American girl who ran away from her abusive father and went to New Zealand with her grandparents. Her mother, Dr. Elizabeth Morgan, was in jail for almost three years for protecting her. This was the “largest custody battle in history,’ (ABC News).

Her frightened eyes graced the covers of every major newspaper in the western world, her face was splashed on the pages of magazines including Vanity Fair and People and her sad smile was broadcast on every television set in every home. The story of her life was made into multiple movies such as, “The Elizabeth Morgan Story,” and “Elena in Exile.” That was the late 1980’s and 90’s.

Elena is grown-up now and is channeling her bizarre life experiences into music. She has a new album, recently released digitally called Rescue Me. This album is a hit in clubs all over New York City. Elena is doing interviews almost weekly with the international media. 60 Minutes New Zealand is flying to Beverly Hills next week to interview her about her music and her life.

She has used every ounce of her talent to help those who are in pain. She recently shot a PSA with Christina Ricci about child abuse. It will air nationally in 2009 with over 3500 hours of air-time. She is a vocal advocate for abused children. Her single “Voiceless” speaks directly to those who are in pain. She has been approached by several charities to speak on their behalf.

In 2009 Elena will be touring with the Macy’s Rock Your Fashion Campaign. She will be a part of an enormous media buy-in worth hundreds of thousands of dollars. This will once again introduce Elena’s face to the world as she will be featured on
MTV, VH1 and so many other stations and publications it would take up too much space to write them all down.

Please contact us as we are anxious to make Elena’s album available in stores before the buy-in begins.

Lyrics

Rescue Me

Written By: Elena Mitrano, Jason Pennock, Jamie Jones, David Garcia

V 1
Don't you know boy that I know I'm playing hard to get
What's the hurry don't you worry cause you won't regret
Just keep waiting and behaving acting like you should
Play it right and I'll make you feel good

B 1
Don't hate ‘cause we took it slow
‘Cause you'll know when I say go...

Hook
Baby, you lit this fire, fire
Feel the, flames getting higher, higher
This is out of control
And only you can rescue me
Baby, you lit this fire, fire
Feel the flames getting higher, higher
This is out of control
And only you can rescue me

V 2
I've been good, just like I should, but I can't do it this time
Want to touch you, need to taste you, got to feel you tonight
Imaginations going crazy, I surrender to you
Boy it's on, there so much I want to do

B 2
And once you see what's in store
You'll keep asking me for more

Hook Repeats

Bridge
‘Cause you will find
That all this time
I've waited for you
And when we touch
You will feel how much
I've been burning just for you

Hook Repeats ONE AND HALF TIMES

Only you can rescue me
Only you can rescue me
Only you can rescue me

New Day

Written By: Elena Mitrano, Jason Pennock, David Garcia

V1
I used to feel so far away
From all the laughter and the sunshine
But I feel so differently today
The world is so much brighter this time

B1
And sometimes the rain can still come down
But I don’t run for cover
I dance between the rain drops
With my hands to the sky
I’ll sing out loud

HOOK
It’s a new day
A new face
Looking back at me
I can feel the change coming over me
I’m seeing things so differently
Cause it’s a new day
A new face
Smiling back at me
Make changes ‘cause I got to believe
That it stops and start right here with me right now

V2
With every sunrise that I see
It reminds me of the mountains I’ve climbed
They made me who I came to be
I never knew the beauty I’d find

B2
And sometimes the rain can still come down
But I don’t run for cover
I dance between the rain drops
With my hands to the sky
And sing out loud

Hook

Bridge
Like waves that crash ashore
I feel their energy
My soul is purified
Ooh, they set me free
Set me free

Hook Repeats TWICE

Voiceless

Written By: Elena Mitrano, Jason Pennock, David Garcia


Ahhh, ahhh, ahhh, ahhh
Ahhh, ahhh, ahhh, ahhh

V1
So many people going through
Things that you could never dream of
If there’s no one there to turn to
Hope fades and it’s easy to give up

B1
So close your eyes lift up your hands and sing

Hook
For unheard anguish
And for un-eased pain
This is for the voiceless
A prayer for the voiceless
For senseless sorrows
For their stories never told
This is for the voiceless
A prayer for the voiceless
You’re not alone

You’re not alone

V2
Endless seas of tragedies
Too many to ever speak of
One tender touch or warm embrace
Could calm the seas with our love

B2
So close your eyes lift up your hands and sing

Hook Repeats

Ooh you’re not alone
You’re not alone
Ooh you’re not alone

So close your eyes lift your hands and sing

Hook Repeats

Ooh you’re not alone
You’re not alone
Ooh you’re not alone

Exit
So many people going through things that you could never dream of

Obsessed

Written By: Tamara J Hyler, Jason Pennock, Joanne Pennock


V1
There's six degrees of separation
Beating between your heart and mine
Somehow I'm going to find a way to
Eliminate the complications
Going down between you and I
And get you right were I want you

B1
You could say anything and I'd believe
‘Cause your danger seduces me
If you were anyone else I'd probably leave but I can’t
No

Hook
You’re so wrong that you’re right for me
I rather play with fire even if it burns me
You’re so bad but I see your beauty
I shouldn't even be with you
But I must confess I'm obsessed

I’m obsessed

V 2
There's got to be a million reasons
Why I should move on with my life
Have to accept the fact that we're through
But when I'm with you there's a feeling
Deep inside that I can’t deny
No one turns me on like you do

B 2
You could say anything and I'd believe
‘Cause your danger seduces me
If you were anyone else I'd probably leave but I can’t

Hook Repeats

Bridge
Boy don’t stop doing what you do
You can keep the attitude
Don’t start playing nice with me
Being real is sexy
If I wanted someone safe
I would never feel this way
Feel this way about you

Hook Repeats

So wrong, so bad, your fire it burns me
So wrong, so bad, your fire it burns me

Pieces of Dreams

Written By: Jason Pennock, Joann Pennock, Gary St Clair


Da da da da da da ah ah ah

V1
Monday morning 6am
It’s hard to get myself
Out of bed
Cause all I want to do
Is pull the covers back up over my head

B1
And I just want to go back to
The love that I can touch
In my sleep
Cause I’ve been getting through the day
My hanging onto
Pieces of Dreams

Hook:
I need change
Need time
Need piece of mind
I need strength
Need now
Need someone turn my life around
Need love
Need real
Need touch
Need feel
There’s got to be more for me
Than hanging onto
Pieces of Dreams

V2
Falling in and out of love
As often as the seasons change
Knowing that my happiness
May only be a kiss away

B2
But I don’t know how much longer
I can keep on keeping on
Feeling this way
Cause I’ve been living dream to dream
And living night to night, day to day

Hook Repeats

Bridge
At nighttime when I lay down to sleep
I know that my dreams are all mine
Until I find someone I believe in
I’m just passing time
Passing time

Need change and I need time
And I need piece of mind
Piece of mind
Turn my life around, oh yeah
Can you feel me? Oh

Hook Repeats

Of dreams, of dreams

Da da da da da da ah ah ah

How Did You

Written By: Jamie Jones, Jason Pennock

V1
I said I never
Fall in love again
And I swore I’d never let no one
Else in my heart

B1
I didn’t think I needed love
‘Cause it only caused me pain
And then one day my whole world changed
When you walked into my life, ohhh

Hook:
How did you help me believe in love? yeah
How did you take away my broken heart?
How did you
Teach me how to feel again
And how did you make me
Fall in love with you

V2
Sometimes I feel like
Pushing you away
Cause it’s so hard to believe that you’d
Want to stay

B2
But every time I go through this
I just look into your eyes
And they tell me everything will be alright
And nothing’s ever going to change, ohhh

Hook Repeats

Bridge:
Love has never
Felt this good to me
It’s like I always
Thought that it would be
And you are my dream come true
For the rest of my life
I’ll only love you

Hook Repeats TWICE EXCEPT LAST LINE ONLY ON SECOND TIME THROUGH

Fall in love with you
Fall in love with you

Pretty Face

Written By: Jamie Jones, Jack Kugell, Jason Pennock, Maria Lawson

V1
Truth is beauty
Never tells you the whole story
Still waters run deep
When you look at yourself
You don’t like what you see

B1
Down your own reflection
Wrapped up in imperfection
When there’s only one side to see
If you look a little closer
Then maybe you’ll discover

Hook:
You’re more than a pretty face
Not filled with empty space
You’re beautiful inside
See you the way I do
Adjust your attitude
Cause we fall and break
And we make mistakes
But more you’re to me
Than what you see
Not just a pretty face, pretty face, pretty face

V2
Always wishing
You could be more
Like the pictures you see
But that’s just fiction
Illusions in a magazine, yeah

B2
Stop acting so defeated
You need to start believing
You’re so much more
Than you think you can be
Keep searching and you’ll find out
Exactly what you’re about

Hook Repeats

B.2
Be crazy Be free
Let everyone see
You’re beautiful when you want to be
Remember the flaws
And the imperfect parts
Makes us who we are

Beautiful inside , Oh yeah

Hook Repeats

So beautiful, so beautiful
Oh you’re so beautiful
So beautiful

Ruler of My Heart

Written By: Jason Pennock, Joanne Pennock, Gary St Clair

V1
I’m sorry
That I wasn’t stronger
And goodbye seemed
The easiest thing to do
I thought I
Couldn’t take it much longer
And now I’m lost without you

B1
Your memory
Just keeps getting stronger
It seems like
Time is just standing still
Come and take this
Weight off my shoulders
If you want me back I will

Hook:
Cause I’m lost
Without you
All I do is dream about you
I know I can’t live without you
Baby you’re the
Ruler of my heart

V2
Please forgive me
I know I hurt you
And I’m ready
To swallow my foolish pride
No man can
Love me like you do
And it tears me up inside

B2
When I think I’ve
Lost you forever
Then I’ve lost my lover and my best-friend
I promise baby I’ll never
Lose my faith again

Hook Repeats

Bridge:
Ruler of my heart and soul
What I really need
Is to hold you one more time
I know I was blind
To the love we had
Now I want you back

I’m sorry I know I hurt you
I was only thinking about myself
Now I know how much I really need you
You and no one else

Hook Repeats

Ahhh, of my heart
Oooh, ruler of my heart
Ruler of my heart
Baby you’re the ruler of my heart
Ruler of my heart

So baby what you waiting for

Running For Love

Written By: Elena Mitrano, Storm

V1: I’ve got my bags
Jumped in my car
And I am ready to drive so far

B1
The wind’s in my hair
I don’t care
And I won’t stop until I see you there

PH: This is my journey
I’ll pick up the pace
I won’t slow down
Until we’re face to face
My heart is yearning
It’s you that I need
Emotions so strong I got to break free

C: I’m running for love
Running for love
Won’t stop
Won’t stop
Till I’m in your arms
Running for love
Running for love
God must have sent you from above

Verse 2
I spent too long
Trying to be strong
You feel so right I just can’t be wrong

B2
And I can’t wait
Anticipate
(I hope it’s not too late)
Please tell me I’m not too late
