About this project

$5,000

My name is Laura Michaels. I'm a singer-songwriter, former professional dancer, & actress. I have had many unique experiences touring & dancing with companies from Europe to Tennessee, and back to my home town Asheville, NC where I was born and raised. As a songwriter I have taken mine & others life experiences, & compiled them to shape the songs that make up my first full length album, "Words of Wisdom."

The 12 song CD represents more than a year's worth of work, collaborating with  talent from the Asheville, N.C. area to create the folk/pop sound that includes songs, such as, "Standing Still,"  and "What Are You Afraid Of'" and "Goodbye to Blues." Shout out to Scott Raines & HillCreek Sudio in Candler, NC for the enjoyable recording experience!  I already have many ideas for my next album & I'm excited to get more music out to my fans!

 My CD "Words of Wisdom" was near completion when I became sick and landed in the hospital. As we all know, life happens and sometimes we have to look for alternate means to accomplish our goals and our dreams. To accomplish finishing up the graphics and being able to print the full 12 song CD w/8 page booklet that includes lyrics to my songs, photographs, thank you's & credits I am at a place where I need your help! Kickstarter proved to be the best way to ask for your assistance in seeing my dream come true. I wanted to be able to put together a professional album that I can share with all of my  friends and fans for years to come. Thank you so much for your support and your love and prayers. I am so blessed to have you all a part of my life and my project. THANK YOU!

 Keep in mind that if the funding goal is not reached within the 60 days then no backer will be charged and I will receive no money for the funding of my project. There is no limit to what amount you can donate. Rewards are in place to add a fun and personal touch & for us to connect! All rewards will be honored in a timely manner if and when the funding goal is reached and after the funding window has been closed. <3 to all!

Do what you Love, & Love Big!

Laura
