Devon Marie, a local teen, wrote a song to benefit the American Heart Association and performed it at last weekend’s Heart Ball in Tyson's Corner. After having experienced the realities of heart disease and heart surgery herself, she decided she would use her singing and song-writing abilities to become more involved in the American Heart Association. Devon wrote a song entitled “Open Your Heart,” which was released on I-tunes on February 1; all of the proceeds go to the American Heart Association.

Devon’s performance of her song was last Saturday, February 26th at the 13th Annual Greater Washington Region Heart Ball. “It was an amazing feeling when she was up there singing, the lyrics were beautiful and heartfelt,” said Patricia Franklin, of the AHA Open Your Heart Committee, and also Devon’s mother.
