You may have seen me on Bill Bellamy's Who's Got Jokes, or in one of my hilarious music videos; you may have even seen me on one of your favorite day time talk shows...
I'm getting ready to create a full length high production musical comedy album with grammy nominated producer Blue Hamilton! It's my dream to fuse original radio quality dance music with hilarious lyrics to create a comedy record that's never been done before. These songs are going to be as catchy as they are funny, completely clean, and top 40 quality. Two of these tracks have already been recorded and with your help I'll be able to complete this amazing album.
I was looking for a soul mate, I needed someone with wisdom. Cougars just weren't insightful enough, that's when I fell for my 85 year Fiance, she's not a cougar, she's a Sabertooth.

I'll be collaborating with some of my favorite creative minds to make this record a smash hit, including grammy nominated producer Blue Hamilton! These kind of partnerships cost money so I'm asking for your support. Who's on board you ask?
I am so fortunate to have multi-platinum and grammy nominated producer Blue Hamilton overseeing the production of this record. Blue has worked with Justin Bieber, Usher, and Neyo, and now gets to collaborate with me (you're welcome Blue). Blue and I will be making sure that this record makes you laugh, dance, and feel like a real woman.
Dionne Osborne, vocal coach for hip hop mega-star Drake will be by my side in the studio making sure that all my melodies sound like unicorns are making babies. She's one of the best singing instructors in the business and I am so fortunate she'll be helping me perfect my vocals as I create this dynamite record.
A brilliant writer, performer, and trailblazing female, Robin Henry makes me wish I was still a strong black woman. She has written for Tyler Perry's House of Payne, Meet the Browns, and The Rickey Smiley Show. She's also helped me craft some of my funniest songs and comedy routines. I'll be collaborating with Robin to make sure every punchline on this album requires you to wear Depends.

CHECK OUT THIS EPIC POLITICAL COMMERCIAL FROM MY DEBUT COMEDY DVD AVAILABLE TO KICKSTARTER BACKERS!
I am so excited that we blew threw our goal of $7,500 in only 8 short days! Now we're looking at STRETCH GOALS!
I'm so grateful to you all! Since we hit our initial goal of $7,500 I can now hire an amazing producer and co-writer, as well as get studio time to make this album sound delicious.
I play drums and Keyboard, while Blue is an awesome Guitarist, Bassist, and Keyboard player. However if we raise $10,000 we could hire an amazing guest musician/vocalist for each the track in areas such as horns and female vocals.
Also once the album is done it will need to be mixed and mastered. This is when the volume of each instrument is adjusted and sweetened by a professional sound engineer to make the album sound pristine. It can get quite pricey so any sum earned after $10,000 can go towards a beautiful mix. If we do the miraculous and raise $25,000 we will create a full length music video with my good friend and super producer Julie Shaer.
Julie helped me conceptualize the vision for the music video Sabertooth as well as the Kickstarter video above. She's worked for Turner Studios and is one of the best in the biz. For every $10,000 we raise beyond that point we will create another incredible music video based on an original comedy song. LET'S SEE HOW MANY WE CAN CREATE!
Risks and challenges
With creating any work of art deadlines are the biggest issue. Some of the tunes on this album are already recorded and written, however Blue, Robin, and I have the wonderful challenge of creating about 5-7 songs from scratch.
I am personally very excited about this because it means Blue Hamilton's delicious Grammy Nominated hands will be by my side nurturing these songs from infancy to awesomeness.
It also means super talented sitcom writer and comedian Robin Henry will be helping me craft these hilarious lyrics from the ground up.
With an amazing team on this record from the ground floor, I know I'll complete this album at a far greater pace than I could have ever done alone and create a work of art that exceeds all our expectations.
No matter your age race or gender, this album is going to make you laugh, dance, and feel like a real woman
