My New Project - "Every Child's A Star

The Music and the Mission!

Project Deadline: March 16th


There are only 11 days left on my Indiegogo Campaign for my new children's CD. Please take a moment to visit the link below and help me bring the spirit of my music to the children by making a pledge to my campaign - Every pledge truly helps! 


Every Child's A Star Link


Each and every child has the potential to bring something unique and special to the world. We all need to help children to develop their potential by believing in them as capable individuals, assisting them in discovering who they are, so they can express their own opinions and nurture their own ideas and giving them the tools with which

to cultivate their own gardens of knowledge. What a world it would be where all children learn to respect, accept, and embrace the differences between us, as the core of what makes life so wonderful.  


I have been humbled and blessed by the love and support I have been shown through the years and I would be truly grateful for your support on this new endeavor. Please take a moment to visit the link, watch the video and look over the campaign. If you cannot donate you can still be a part of the success of this project, which would mean just as much to me, by sharing the link and the campaign with everyone you know thru facebook, emails, twitter and word of mouth.
