"Silent Cries" is a movie written by the father of a child with hypoplastic left heart syndrome. What makes "Silent Cries" so touching is how it has brought the CHD community together in ways unforeseen when it was first conceptualized. One of the ways it has brought people together is by turning its key handlers from being a philanthropist in the CHD and nonprofit communities into an executive producer for this show. A new team brought with it new collaboration and a new title. Find out who this producer is, how she became involved with the movie and why "Silent Cries" need to be silenced no longer.

This rapper/producer with tremendous talent has taken his love and desire for music to another lyrical level. He’s like no other, the style, the name; the man himself cannot be duplicated, something spectacular to offer.
His raps are crisp and to the point, he's a monster on the stage, and in the studio his creative nature invades his music, it can't get more precise than that. His versatility is proven in the many songs in which he has produced and written. His rap style can be straight hardcore rap and then switch to a commercial, laid-back flow. So let's take it back...
Born July 17,1985 in Denver Colorado, Christopher Mitchell, now known as Saint, would grow up to find himself trying to understand the craziness of the world. “I follow my own mind and I've alway thought so deep.” And so it began, Saint put in his time blessing the mic. Saint emerged in late 2003, collaborating and performing alongside Colorado Legend BBlacc and Dankside ENT. He has carried his talent from state to state, venue to venue as he has worked hard to express his unique personality through his brand of Finest Music. Faced with many trials and tribulations in both, his personal life and music career, have molded him into the musician he is today. Saint has always had an ear for good music, rhymes and hooks. He says, “At first I didn't know I had it in me. The magic of music brought the real trueness out of me.” In time he developed his own style and writing skills. Influenced by the hard-edged beats and southern gangster-rap of No Limit Records, Saint is a rare exception in the ever changing world of Hip-Hop. In a genre where new artists come and go, plagued with gimmicks and schemes, Saint manages to remain true to himself and the music he makes. Destined to be a household name, Saint possesses the musical creativity and charisma to someday become one of the greats.
