    Sure, plenty of other supporters may be enjoying their custom ringtone. But you and your child will walk in the door of the Morgan-Wixson humming songs like "Why You Were Made," "Storybook Song," and the show's signature ballad, "I Can't Read," because YOU will have your own cast-album. Go ahead, crank up the song "Frenetic Phonetics" in your car, but please do watch your speedometer, because this music makes you want to FLY. Naturally, we'll include the rewards from the first 6 tiers.

    Pledge $500 or more About $500

    Composer Sarah Taylor Ellis and lyricist Andrew Bentz will write a song just for you or a loved one -- an unforgettable gift to recognize a birthday or anniversary, or "just because." Your song can be up-tempo or a ballad, with you providing the theme and ideas. Delivery will be by August 1, 2011 (since Sarah is writing her dissertation and Andrew has a summer clerkship!) and you'll receive the sheet music and a CD recording, plus the audio e-file for sharing. Shhhh, we're superb at keeping secrets, if you want the song to be a surprise. And as if this wasn't enough, we'll also happily give you the rewards for the first 7 tiers. Because we love you. Seriously. Love. You.
