Glenn Medeiros, well known for his smooth rendition of "Nothing's Gonna Change My Love For You" and the #1 MTV hit recorded with Bobby Brown, "She Ain't Worth It" has written a tribute song to the fallen astronauts of the past and an inspiration to future flights and space exploration. Medeiros will be releasing the song, "Here and Now" to fulfill his quest to honor the fallen astronauts from both the Challenger and the Columbia Shuttles and to let our future space explorers know that the spirit of Hawaii follows with them.

Medeiros, who also teaches second grade at Island Pacific Academy in Kapolei, Hawaii, says, "the lyrics are personal because the people of NASA need to know that their hard work and dedication does more than just advance space exploration - it provides children (even as far away as Hawaii) with the hope to reach their dreams no matter the obstacles."

"Here and Now" exemplifies the courage and dedication shown by the people of NASA and models the characteristics all teachers want to instill in their students. Keiki means children and Aloha means love and Mahalo means thank you, all words in the song.

Medeiros is also scheduled to appear on an hour-long VH1 special which will be taped while the shuttle is visiting the International Space Station next month. The segment will explore the work in which he is currently focused.
