Apollo Lee 52 Tracks in 52 Weeks

Strong Like Giselle

Title: Apollo Lee – Strong Like Giselle
Dedication: For my friend, Giselle Ayala, an inspiring fighter.
Date: February 28, 2014
Genre: House
Timing: 2:35:16

Strong Like Giselle is a tribute mix for my friend, Giselle Ayala, who is sharpening her sword for her third battle with cancer. On Friday, February 28, 2014, I mixed 34 deep house tracks to help inspire her in her fight. I hope it inspires you. If it does, will you do me a favor and toss whatever you can spare to help fund her treatment.

I spent a while sitting on this mix without posting it, since I haven’t posted any mixes since the Digeum finale about 18 months ago. I took some time to work up the nerve, because the incredible constellation of legendary musicians and DJs that surround her. There’s one thing I know about these people, though — they’re extraordinarily supportive. So, I figured it was time to brave up and try to be strong like Giselle.

Thanks for the inspiration, Giselle. You’re a true warrior.
