Choice Hotels Music Celebrates Love with its Newest Original Song Available for Free Download

"Sweetest Dreams" Makes Valentine's Day Just a Little Bit Sweeter with the Words of a Special Poet

Silver Spring, Md. (February 14, 2011) // PRNewswire // — Just in time for Valentine's Day this year, Choice Hotels Music is offering yet another free original song download for consumers with "Sweetest Dreams." Performed by Holly Montgomery and available for free at, "Sweetest Dreams" was inspired by the poetry of a remarkable young woman named Kai Croft and its lyrics were inspired by the emotion of love.

As the newest release by Choice Hotels Music, the song strikes a particularly emotional cord for the company. In May of 2010, Steve Joyce, president and CEO of Choice Hotels International and Vice-Chairman of the ServiceSource Foundation, visited ServiceSource in Alexandria, Virginia where he met Kai. Kai is a 26 year old client of ServiceSource, who, despite having Arthrogryposis — a severe physical disability which affects a person's joints, is a prolific and eloquent poet. After reading Kai's poetry blog, Steve asked Kai if she would like some of her poems put to music. Kai loved the idea.

What's more, consumers who visit and download the free song will sponsor a $1 donation from Choice Hotels International to the non-profit organization ServiceSource Foundation. Choice Hotels will donate one dollar for every free download of the song by consumers, up to $10,000.

"I have been writing poetry for as long as I can remember. I think I was about 12 years old when I wrote my first poem called 'Poems' and it made me think that I could express myself with the words that readily came to mind," said Kai. "It's so exciting that my writing has inspired others to create this song and give back to ServiceSource."

"I was so inspired by meeting Kai, reading her poems and seeing what ServiceSource Foundation does to help people. It all just fit so perfectly with the Choice Hotels Music program that was able to combine all of these amazing elements to create 'Sweetest Dreams'," said Choice Hotels President and CEO Steve Joyce, vice-chairman of the ServiceSource Foundation.

Visit today to download the free song "Sweetest Dreams" by Holly Montgomery and inspire a $1 donation (up to $10,000) for the ServiceSource Foundation. For more of Kai's poetry, visit her blog at
