Local singer Ashley Nemeh writes song, donates net proceeds to help Amanda, Gina and Michelle

CLEVELAND - The story of the three Cleveland women kidnapped and held captive for a decade touched the hearts of people across the area and the country.

Local singer and songwriter Ashley Nemeh was one of those so touched that she decided she had to do something to help.

"I was sitting, watching the coverage, crying. I was thinking I would do anything to help these girls."

Nemeh was in high school when the women disappeared about a decade ago. She remembered praying they would be found. And now, the ending Nemeh and so many others have prayed for, the young women found alive.

Nemeh knew she had to do something to help Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight.

"I can't imagine what they've gone through, their strength and courage is definitely an inspiring thing," said Nemeh.

So inspiring, that the singer finished a song years in the making that she said is perfect for the young women -- it's called "Anything Is Possible."

"The net profits will go to the Cleveland Courage Fund," said Nemeh. "I wanted to do something, I wanted to contribute somehow."

The song can be downloaded on iTunes. Information about the Cleveland Courage Fund can be found here:  http://on.wews.com/10UyFAi
