"Play the song for at least 30 seconds and all the money we get from streaming I'm directly donating to an organization called Taps. So that's an organization supporting veterans and their families," said Sticco.
She says through her website, her song has been streamed 37,000 times in a matter of days. On top of that, she's encouraging separate donations. FULL STORY & VIDEO
