In 1987, Richard Gaskin, a Queens NY resident, was shot by a friend over
a personal dispute. The result would change Richard°Øs life and those around
him forever.

The bullet severed his spine leaving him unable to walk. This meant that
from now on, Richard would be confined to a wheelchair.

Richard°Øs well being now depended on his family and friends, all of whom,
fortunately for him, were extremely loyal and wanted to be there for him.

Richard was never a trouble maker or into the negative things that his
surroundings had an abundance of. He was a local DJ, and aspiring artist,
who was on the fast track to making a career for himself. He also was becoming
proficient in Hung Gar Kung-Fu, which taught him the discipline he needed to
succeed. It was in part envy over his accomplishments and chosen life style,
that brought Richard to his fate with some one he trusted.

Moving on, Richard would slowly regain his ability to be the artist that he
was. As the years went by, it occurred to him that turning his music into
a message for young people could encourage them to stay focused andfollow their dreams, while avoiding the many pitfalls in life.
In 2005, after doing a tribute song to Christopher Reeve, a hero of his, Richard
was invited by the Christopher Reeve Foundation to perform at the Capitol
Building in the company of Dana Reeve, Hillary Clinton, and other senators.politicians, many renown doctors.

Since then, Richard has been asked to perform at various venues related to
paralysis, and has taken part in round table discussions and gala events with
New Jersey°Øs Governor Corzine, and Governor Cody, as well Michael J. Fox,
and other celebrities who are fighting for research needed to cure paralysis
and other degenerative diseases.

In addition to his appearances, Richard has founded an non-profit organization called,the °?I Believe Organization°±. The purpose of the foundation is to promoteawareness of the research being done and currently needed to help cure the diseases and conditions that affect him, and so many others. This is done by utilizing technology, to make informative presentations, and to spread the word via mediums such as audio, video, and the web. This method, in conjunction with live performances, will go a long way to getting people involved in such an important cause.
