I’ve arrived in Nashville to record the EP!!!
It was an emotional and eventful day. I headed to the airport feeling the support and love of this wonderful growing team of backers.
While I waited for my flight to board I received the news of what took place in Charlottesville. I sat with the confusion of sadness, concern and the previously present joy all existing like a game of poker players in my heart taking turns playing their cards.
It’s all so intense and unbelievable. How can so much light and love exist in the presence of so much dark. I once again felt the conviction that artists are being called to the table now more than ever to help process, express, and soothe this intensity of emotion leading to violence.
I’ve decided that I will donate at least 5% of the contributions to this campaign. After much thought, I’ve chosen “Little Kids Rock,” a U.S. national nonprofit that is dedicated to building a world where kids can live rich, purposeful lives by ensuring that all public school children have the opportunity to unlock their inner music makers. www.littlekidsrock.org
I know who this group is from my previous job as a managing editor at MMR Magazine and School Band and Orchestra. They are providing music education to students who otherwise would have no opportunity, no joy of performing music, and possibly no access to expressing emotions in a healthy manner. I believe humans need to learn these skills as soon as possible in life.
I’d love to hear your comments.
Pass on the link (igg.me/at/sharonpaquette), Pre-Order the EP and let your people know that you are supporting an artist to make her dreams a reality as well as children who deserve the opportunity to learn music regardless of social status.
