Young East Texas singer finds way to give back to veterans
(KETK) Frankston Tx — One rising star in East Texas is giving back to our veterans, and it's a cause, close to her heart, as well as her family's.
Caitlyn Brette got her start at a very young age, but as you'll find, she had an unorthodox path toward music, by turning a weakness, into a harmonizing strength.
"I've been doing it since I was three I've been performing on stage since I was six and it's something I've always loved to do," said Brette.
At a very young age, Brette was taken to a speech therapist to help correct a lisp, part of her therapy was singing, which did more than help with her impediment.
"After I started, my dad had already been in a band, and I just started performing around the Texas area and fell in in love with it," said Brette.
Her dad is an Army vet, part of a long line of soldiers in her family history.
"My mom is a really big family tree fan so as we looked back into it we found out more and more generations that I have that have been in wars and have served," said Brette.
Which is why she is donating the proceeds of one of her songs, 'Legacy of the Red White and Blue', to Lone Star Military Group.
"We just decided it would be best, to see if we could get something out of it and make sure it would help out a little bit," said Brette.
Her mom helps her write while her dad helps on stage. Brette's entire journey has been a family endeavor.
"It means everything to me, that's how I've always done it," said Brette.
A family which helps her reach for her musical dreams, while at the same time give back to Americas' heroes, and her family lineage.
"I'm very proud that I have a family that's so stuck on helping," said Brette.
