On a more serious note, I want to talk about something that is especially near and dear to my heart: Haiti. As you may know, Hurricane Matthew tore through Haiti earlier this month, leaving many of the Haitian citizens devastated and killing 1,000 people. Those who have known me for a while know that I've always had a heart for Haiti. Since 2010, my non-profit Her Many Voices (HMV), has worked in Trou ChouChou to help build homes and a school. Unfortunately, the region where HMV did much of our work was pretty much washed away with Hurricane Matthew.
Her Many Voices is currently working to raise much-needed funds to assist with the relief effort in Haiti. It is our passion to reach out to our Haitian brothers and sisters to help them rebuild. In my view, it is our social responsibility to help where we can. The money that HMV is set out to raise will go toward providing much-needed supplies, food, water, and assist in rebuilding the community. Please consider getting involved. Even $10 will make all the difference. If you are called to donate, please do so here.
With that, I am currently seeking to collaborate in the local music community on a Haiti benefit show to assist HMV in the mission to raise money for the Haitian relief effort. If you are a musician, band, or venue who is interested in collaborating on such a project, please get in touch with my management team right away.
Thank you all. Together we can all make a difference!
