Midtown Studios Miami Fulfills Young Rapper’s Dream With Studio Time
He pulled up in a white, stretch limousine. It’s the only way to arrive at the recording studio.
That’s how Eric Goodwin started his day.
“He’s excited,” said his mother, Enecie Randle. “He was so excited he was going to walk out of his wheelchair!”
The 17-year-old from Louisville, Kentucky, has stage four brain cancer.
“He did 45 days of radiation and 50 days of chemo every day,” said mom. “He’s on a 6-week break and he has to go back and start over.”
During that break, however, he gets to live his dream of being a rapper.
“He’s been wanting to do this forever and they made it happen,” Randle said.
On Saturday, he got the chance to record a song, thanks to the Make-a-Wish Foundation. Midtown Studios in Miami opened their doors and recording booth to Eric and his friends, letting him lay down a track he wrote himself.
