The Music in Motion Foundation was founded by singer/songwriter and slide guitar slinger Ryan “Gooch” Nelson out of his love and passion for inspiring others through music and his powerful testimony.

Our goal is to create one of a kind musical events that raise money to fund valuable music programs in hospitals, rehab centers, schools, prisons, and anywhere else music can be used to educate, motivate, and affect change in a positive way. In addition, the Foundation allows Gooch to use his powerful gift of healing those who are hurt or disenfranchised by going places that have no budget for music or motivational speaking and sharing his gift with them.

“I am a quadriplegic, musician, writer, and a man of many hats. I am living my dream and want to inspire others to never give up on theirs.”
