Atlanta-based musician Vince Zangaro is a man on a mission. After years of working in the corporate world, Zangaro's passion for creating meaningful music was reignited inside an unexpected journey. When he left his job to assume the role of full-time caregiver to his ailing father battling Alzheimer's disease,  Zangaro became inspired to pen the story through music. The day-to-day challenges they face blossomed into a mission of caring for others.

Zangaro's music takes on real-life issues to include addiction, illness, and survival. He's teamed up with some of Atlanta's top musicians: Jason 'Lefty" Williams , Karma Lingo 2.0, The Lost Boys, Anne Marie Perry, and more. His music is often compared to the Red Hot Chili Peppers and it's captured the attention of The B-52s for his "Alzheimer's Music Fest" project.

Zangaro's musical mission promotes Alzheimer's awareness and brings hope and help to the disempowered and misunderstood. For nearly 10 years, he's provided in-home care for his "Pops" while orchestrating tender strategies to lessen the grip of Alzheimer's. From poignant Facebook journals to a renown music fest, Zangaro has created an "open book" about Alzheimer's, thereby erasing social stigmas and magnifying the hope that remains.

Zangaro's mission is backed by community and business supporters, and notable music industry reviews in The Backstage Beat, The Examiner.com, and the World News Network.com, and video productions.
