The mission of Flame is to create awareness of the abilities that disabled people have. On the road, Flame has performed in 7 states, 45 towns and as far away as Athens, Greece. The band has produced three albums All for a Reason, Flame Live at the Glove and Holiday Classic. In 2009, Flame was featured on Good Morning America. In 2007, the group received the Cover Band of the Year Award presented by Metroland magazine.
