Young Singer Songwriter Gives Back After Surviving Cancer (Caly On The Good - E1)

"I was so insecure about my body. I was a skinny, scrawny girl with a bald head and dark bags under my eyes."

At 15, this was the hole that Caly Bevier found herself in. The Chemo treatments for her ovarian cancer took away her energy, mobility, and appetite. But despite the fear from a diagnosis that gave her only a 67% chance of survival, her fighting spirit propelled her forward. She faced down the weeks of Chemo until her cancer was in remission and vowed to get her life back.


The road was long and uphill but get it back she did…and how. Soon after returning to High School in Grand Rapids, Ohio, a Facebook Post her Dad made of her singing "Fight Song" at a benefit for a fellow patient propelled her to a spot on the Ellen show. That in turn led to an audition for America's Got Talent and an amazing moment where Simon Cowell himself hit the Golden Buzzer to propel her forward.

With her love of music as a compass, Caly signed with Primary Wave, a music publishing and talent management company, and moved by herself to LA. She's now spending her days in the studio with some of the industry's top producers and writers crafting her first batch of original material. Her growing fan army, known as Team Caly are supporting her along the way. "I can't believe I'm making music, I never thought I would be able to do that. I'm definitely living a dream come true."

Caly is using her new found platform to make a difference for others who are battling this disease, most recently with the organization Stupidcancer, which specifically focuses on support for young adults. "No matter what happens with music, I will always fight for people who have cancer." Listen closely… she knows a thing or two about fighting back.

In this series, viewers are going to be able to follow Caly as she inspires other young adults with cancer, works with various organizations and charities, and tries to get her record out all while following her dreams and being the good person she is. Caly will be appearing at charity events for multiple organizations, both preforming, presenting, and accepting awards for her work. She will also visit hospitals with kids/young adults who have cancer and try to cheer them up or just listen to their stories.

Caly will also be helping young songwriters/singers get their inspiration by working with them directly or surprising them by visiting and singing with them, and much more. Caly has an "inner good" and "something special" that will shine through and be an inspiration to those around her.

Meet Netta Jenkins! - Netta, D.I. (E1)

** OGTV celebrates MLK Day with this inspiring story of a young woman addressing Diversity and Inclusion in the workplace. **

"Every single person feels a sense of exclusion throughout their life."

Even as a kid, this observation struck Netta Jenkins as a universal truth. As the newly elected president of her freshman class in Johnston High School in Rhode Island, she knew she had found a core emotional theme that any student could relate to. Netta then rallied students and teachers to discuss and address their feelings of exclusion, and together they were able to make meaningful changes in the day to day life at their school.

Boston’s North End Institution That Treats You Like Family – Polcari’s Coffee

** In recognition of National and International Coffee Day, we would like to share a story of one of our favorite local businesses that have been boosting up residents in the North End of Boston with their coffee blends for almost a century! **

This Little Italy neighborhood in the North End of Boston is dotted with stores from an earlier, simpler time that have a genuine, authentic feel. Bobby Eustace, the owner of one such store, relishes the enjoyment he sees in the eyes of his customers as they take in what he calls the "orderly disarray" of his shop where you can find rare spices, deli meats, candy, pasta, and a wide selection of coffees, their specialty. When you cross the threshold and take a deep breath of the unique mix of aromas, you know you have arrived at Polcari's Coffee.

Young Inventor Helps Kids Find Comfort in Hospitals

** To commemorate Kid Inventors Day, OGTV is sharing this story about a young girl who redirected her fear from a hospital stay into the creation of a device that makes these visits a little less scary for other kids in the same situation. **

The only good part of a hospital stay is the end of it – the moment you go through the doors and know you are heading home. As stressful as this can be for an adult, it is exponentially worse for a young child. Ella Casano was one of those kids suddenly plucked out of normal life by an unpronounceable diagnosis and thrust into a daily routine of painful treatment, fear-stricken parents and the prospect of long periods away from home. Though she was really scared, she saw her situation from a kid's "how do I beat this" perspective and envisioned something that could make the experience just a little bit easier for herself and others like her.

Autistic Basketball Champ Teaches Kids Hope With Hoops

How would you feel if a team of medical specialists reviewed your background and declared, at the age of 5, that because you had Autism, you would never be successful academically, that you would likely not graduate from high school much less go to college, and that being an athlete was out of the question. Anthony Ianni faced that future and just flat out refused to accept it – he ignored what the doctors said, set goals, worked hard, and created his own destiny.
