Kaylin has not just been winning over fans with her unique sound but, also with her message of hope. As a young child Kaylin also spent time in the hospital after overcoming her own tragic ordeal and feels like she can relate with the kids in a small way.
Kaylin says; “as a child who has been in the hospital I know what it feels like to be there, to be scared, to wonder what is next, the fear of scars and especially the importance of someone giving me a little hope for the future. That is what I try to bring to kids in schools and hospitals across the country…a message of hope and a reminder that it will all be OK, just believe in yourself, stay strong and have faith.”
Music Gives to St. Jude Kids Day will feature artist around the United States that will perform and show support of the St. Jude mission. Finding cures.Saving children. Support from artists like Kaylin ensures that no families receive a bill for treatment, travel, housing or food because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.

About Kaylin Roberson
When Kaylin was 9 years old she was attacked by a family dog. The attack was so awful that it tore open her mouth, lip, opposing cheek and part of her eye leaving her in need of life support, hundreds of stitches, and facial reconstruction. Unfortunately, this was just start of this ordeal, going back to school after this incident Kaylin learned quickly that she had an entirely new set of challenges to face. Kaylin for the first time had to experience real bullying, being made fun of, laughed at and taunted all because of the scars left on her face. She felt very alone and when she felt she had no one else to turn to she turned to the one thing that gave her peace and happiness, and that was music.
Nine years later Kaylin has written and recorded over 50 inspiring songs and videos with her most recent being, “Mistakes”, about a young girl’s mistakes while learning the art of relationships at a young age. She has also won local and national awards testifying her ability to sing, write, and connect with others through her music.
