Robinson and his Wish Project Foundation to grant wishes for children in several markets across America in coming months.
Robbie Robinson has released his latest single “Save This Child.” The song is a heart-tugging melodic ballad that focuses on the playful spirit of an ill young child who remains in the thoughts of a concerned adult. “Save This Child” is the third single from South Carolina native, Robbie Robinson, from his forthcoming album, ‘The Wish Project.’
Radio programmers can download the track at Play MPE and at the CDX Download Center. The song is also available for purchase at iTunes and other digital retailers
Continuing his passion and dedication for children who face life-altering tragedies, South Carolina native Robbie Robinson presents “Save This Child” as part of the charitable message and mission of his Wish Project Foundation. The proceeds from the song will benefit Robinson’s Wish Project (not affiliated with the Make a Wish Foundation) to grant wishes for these children and help restore hope beyond their tragic circumstance. The organization was founded by the artist after he personally experienced a life-altering traumatic accident at the age of 18. Robinson’s inspirational story serves as a reminder of the power of hope and dreaming big dreams.
Robinson and the Wish Project Foundation will be granting wishes for children in several markets across America in the coming months.
“I wrote this song last year as I was on my first radio tour. My 3 year-old niece Cheyenne had just started her battle with Ewing Sarcoma and I was traveling pretty steady and getting back to see her most weekends,” recalls Robinson. “I have seen the resilience in so many young kids fighting cancer and they all just make you want to pick them up and take their pain away entirely. Of course, the ‘Wish Project’ is largely built around kids who have suffered great tragedy but not necessarily medical and so my hope for this song was for it to apply to any adult who has ever known a child in pain and understands that feeling of wanting nothing more than to take that child’s suffering from them.”

ABOUT ROBBIE ROBINSON: Robinson hails from Aiken, South Carolina. Born into a family with deep musical ties, his Mother sang and played piano, and his Grandfather played guitar and sang with a gospel quartet. So, it was a natural progression that he began teaching himself to play piano at age 6, made his first solo performance in church when he was in the eighth grade, and learned guitar from his Grandfather when he was a senior in high school. As his passion for music grew, he was influenced throughout his youth by Country artists Randy Travis, Vince Gill, Loretta Lynn, Reba McEntire and Garth Brooks.
As a teenager, Robinson found another “life calling” and began volunteering his time with charitable organizations, mentoring and working with/on behalf of children from every background. By age fifteen, he began serving as a 4-H camp counselor, where for three summers he worked with more than 300 children. It was during this time that a friend gave him a CD by a Christian band that would soon change his life forever. He loved the group and he learned their songs word-for-word.
During his first semester of college, Robinson was again involved with children as he worked between classes in a local Rehab Center as a pediatric rehabilitation aid. He also taught the Royal Ambassadors program at his church, where young boys from grades 1-6 experience hands-on activities that encourage spiritual growth. When Robbie was eighteen, he learned that the musical group that he had fallen in love with earlier was going to be performing a few hours away from where he lived and he made arrangements to attend the show.
Little did he know that the trip to see the group’s concert would end in a life-altering accident that would lead to a severe brain injury after the right rear tire on the truck he was riding in exploded and caused the vehicle to roll on the interstate. Robinson underwent emergency brain surgery on Thanksgiving Day. After removing most of his right temporal lobe, doctors warned his family that he would likely never play, hum, or even recognize a tune again. Miraculously, Robbie surprised everyone when he made his way to the piano in the hospital chapel just a few weeks later and began to sing and play, despite the predictions.
