Robin Williams' death makes 'A Day of Grace' mission stronger

DENVER – About one year ago, we told you about a theatrical project called "A Day for Grace."

It's a two man show featuring local actor and playwright Doug Vincent, and former BoDeans rock star Sam Llanas.

The play tackled a difficult subject: suicide.

Vincent wrote it about his father's suicide, and how it affected him especially --after the birth of his daughter, Grace.

It was a serious play, but also had humor, elegance and a wonderful soundtrack by Llanas.

Now, in light of Robin Williams suicide, we checked back in with Vincent.

We are pleased to report "A Day for Grace" is still out there spreading the word that suicide doesn't have to be the way out, there is help if you need it.

Doug says he and Sam have been invited to perform their play in New York for Road Recovery's prestigious MasterTrax Program for at risk youth.

The show will also be featured live from Rockefeller Center on Sirius XM radio.

The two follow the footsteps of some pretty big name entertainers who have taken part in the MasterTrax Program.

People like Eric Clapton, Buddy Guy, Tony Bennett, Ronnie Wood of the Rolling Stones and many, many more.

In addition, many of the songs from the play are featured in Sammy's new album "The Whole Night Thru" to be released this fall.

Proceeds from pre-lease copies of the CD will help raise funds for the "A Day for Grace" Project.

Vincent says Robin Williams death has just made his mission stronger.

The National Suicide Hotline number is 1-800-273-TALK (8255)
