TARRYTOWN, N.Y. --  Olivia—a talented 13-year-old from South Fallsburg who loves to sing—had her dream of living the life of a pop star come true at the annual National Believe Day held Friday, Dec. 12 at Macy’s flagship Herald Square Store in Manhattan, thanks to a Make-A-Wish foundation grant.

Olivia went to Macy's to drop her wish in the Believe mailbox. Then she went to a recording studio to cut her first album, consisting of songs she wrote. After receiving pop star pampering, including a makeover and rocking new outfits, Olivia was professionally photographed for the album cover, which she displayed.

On the day of her debut, as cameras flashed, she was greeted by many fans who lined up to have Olivia sign copies of her CD.

Macy’s annual Believe campaign benefiting Make-A-Wish® raises money to help grant the wishes of children across the country like Olivia with life-threatening medical conditions. This year letters can be posted online at macys.com/believe. For each letter received, Macy’s will donate $1 to Make-A-Wish, up to $1 million.
