Check out another original song, featuring Spiro Galiatsatos on guitar!
I'm so proud to announce that my original song "Just Sing On" has been chosen as a semi-finalist for the Sondheim Remix Contest held by City Center Encores! The song, along with several others, will be showcased at an event held at City Center this summer. Stephen Sondheim will be present and get to hear this piece.
The song is inspired by the line "Stop worrying if your vision is new/let others make that decision/they usually do" from Sondheim's masterpiece "Sunday In The Park With George. Spiro Galiatsatos joins me on guitar and vocals, and as a collaborative partner in molding the final version of the song.
This fun video was part of The Every Girl shoot I did a few weeks ago. As you can see, acting is super hard work all the time :)
Each year for my birthday (which is today!) I ask family, friends, and total strangers to donate money to very deserving dog rescues instead of buying me gifts. Over the past two years, I've raised over $1600!
You can read more about Dollars For Doggies 2014 here!
You can see the donation page here.
[UPDATE: we raised $995!! Thanks to all who donated!]
To give a bit more incentive to donate, I created a spoken word video last night to highlight the dogs who really touched my heart this year. Please note that dog rescue is not always a pretty sight and there are some upsetting photos and stories included (also a curse or two). Fair warning before you watch. That being said, I DO encourage you to watch. As artists, it's our job to use our talents to bring light to important issues and there is nothing I'm more passionate about. At nearly 1,000 views, I couldn't be more proud of this little video.
