DJ CherishTheLuv is the official DJ of Nile Rodgers’ We Are Family Foundation.

Music Missionary

As a Music Missionary, Cynthia Cherish Malaran dedicates herself to spreading freedom of movement, joy and healing via music, rooted in a mindset she entitles “Music Heals.” She has taught DJing to children and adults ages 9-86, most recently to teenage girls at an orphanage in Ecuador and Willie Mae Rock Camp. DJ CherishTheLuv has brought music into the hospice setting, providing palliative pain care for terminally-ill patients. Her work in hospice was labelled “DJing for the dying” as she got paralyzed stroke patients to dance in bed, deaf patients to hear the music, and helped bring comfort in what is referred to in the hospice world as “the good death.” As a breast cancer survivor, Cynthia has written several pieces published and performed by Broadway actors in Memorial Sloan Kettering’s Visible Ink program. Music and creativity are her cornerstones for survival.

And yes, Cherish is her real middle name, given to her by her Mother, inspired by the oldies song of the same name, by The Association (“…Cherish is the word I use to describe…”). DJ CherishTheLuv got her DJ name from GZA, of the Wu-Tang clan.
