The Saddest Day

Posted on: August 14th, 2014 by David Chicken No Comments

Hello Friends,

I write you today with the heaviest of hearts. My beloved Mama Chicken passed away this week. She had been fighting lung cancer since December. Mama passed peacefully, with her hand in mine, as I told her I loved her.

She was such a strong and loving person. Despite having many physical ailments, including cancer most recently, she was always up performing at our shows, making children smile. She was singing and rapping as recently as April at NorthPark Center.

Mama’s name away from the stage was Jane McMahon. I play music because of her. She saw that I loved music and art at an early age, and she cultivated those talents by taking me to many, many live musical performances. She arranged painting lessons at age 5. Guitar lessons at age 13. Thank you Mama for giving me the gift of music.

Mama will continue to inspire and guide me through life. She lives on in my heart, and in the hearts of the many who loved her. I know that she now has the best front-row seats for all of my performances.

There will be a Memorial service for Jane McMahon this Saturday at 10:30 am. It will be a celebration of her life, and appropriate for children. More info here.

I love you Mama,
David
