Though seeds had been planted a decade earlier, the vision that is Mic’d came to fruition in the fall of 2015. Invited by friend Grace Sharington (Founder, Dremana Productions) to MC a fundraiser for charity, our lives were flipped upside down. We met Ryan “Wheelz” Schmidt, a rapper/songwriter who battles Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD), a young man wise beyond his years, one who taught us a thing (or ten) about life. It was an action-packed day…the culmination of which was Wheelz’s live performance of “Searching.”

The event – Ryan’s Day – was able to raise significant funds for DMD research. But it wasn’t the money that left a mark on our hearts. It was Wheelz’s encouraging spirit, his relentless dream of raising a voice, and the entire group’s effort to bring people together for a good cause & for a good time.

Days later, Mic’d was born.
