This is 'OTHER SIDE OF BLUE'

Rakale Hannah here! Welcome to my Kickstarter project for "Other Side of Blue", my debut album. A little about me, I am a singer, songwriter, life coach and speaker. My roots have always been in music and along my journey I've gained lots of wisdom on a consciously chosen personal development path to wholeness. Both my passion for music and desire for soul advancement are embodied within my work and songs.
Like many, I lost sight of my truest self. I was told at a young age that I wasn't a real singer and with my youthful, open heart and mind I grabbed a hold of and believed those inaccurate words and I lived by them. I spent many years simply, not singing. Thankfully, I've discovered my true voice over time and now am more than clear on who I am and I'm so excited to be bringing my debut album to the world.
But I need your help to do it right, I mean like a real singer! ;) Help me complete this album in professional fashion by becoming one of my treasured backers. I feel this album is a celebration of life, the good, the bad, the seemingly impossible and the ultimate triumph that is ever available in the heart of each of us. We've all experienced ups and downs and no matter our current situation it is always possible to get to the "Other Side of Blue".
I've created some heart expanding and exciting rewards for you. One of my favorites being the "Happy Birthday To You" reward. There are many affordable ways for you to embrace this project and I'll take great care to ensure you receive the best. Should you be a very generous donor and be one of the lucky recipients of a larger package, I'll contact you personally and we'll work out the specific details and get everything scheduled in a manner that works for both of us. Feel free to message me with any questions.
This record will pull at your heart strings, restore you to laughter and bring healing to the parts of you that remain in need of care.
Here are some thoughts about this project from members of my production team:
Kelly Rae ~ Songwriter
Not only is Rakale Hannah a phenomenal singer, but she is an amazing soul. I'm filled with so much gratitude that our connection and the self work that we do together has led us to collaborate in many ways on her debut project "Other Side of Blue." What started out as a poem I wrote a few years ago, while encountering my own spiritual awakening during a difficult time in my life, has become an incredible lead single that symbolizes hope, healing and the simple honoring of our true selves. With Rakale's passion and sense of purpose she, along with producer extraordinaire, Alex Teamer, has transformed beautiful, heart wrenching lyrics into a melodic, soul-stirring, triumphant song that captures her signature sound. I'm so excited for the world to witness the unfolding of this project. Each song presents the opportunity to experience a life changing catharsis which creates a gateway to coming out stronger on the "Other Side of Blue."

Alex Teamer ~ Producer
Raaaaaah-Kale ...To be honest, is one of the most down to earth artist I have ever worked with. Talented, extremely passionate, and consistent. In the studio, she is about her business. Always comes in with a smile, which is awesome!!! This project has been like a fun filled day at the beach. I look forward to more music from her! The song "Other Side of Blue" is one of my favorites. Rakale, Kelly and I got together to vibe on some lyrics that where created without music or melody... I thought it would be tough but once I heard the words, it was like clockwork. And. Here you have it!!!! Ladies and Gentlemen...Rakale Hannah aka Raaaah-Kale
Risks and challenges
The best news is production is nearly complete. I still have to pay for production cost for the remainder of recording and cover cost for mixing and mastering, stylist, cover design & photography, website, attorney's fees for song placements ect....
And let’s not forget the powerful visual experience of music videos. I will hire a video production team for 1-3 music videos for singles released on this project.
Next is letting the world know this project is here...marketing. We'll use whatever budget remains after CD production costs and video production fees are paid off to market, market, market. We want everyone on the planet to know this project is here.
$11,000 is a modest budget for the completion and promotion of this project but is enough to ensure we are able to honor your rewards and bring this project to life with a bold and authentic delivery. If we exceed our goal and reach closer to $15,000 or $20,000, we'll be able to increase the visibility of this album exponentially by hiring a publicist and radio promoter and most importantly we'll make a few more songs! You know you want more songs...giggles The more you invest, the higher the quality of all that we'll be able to deliver.
Also live performances, we are planning out a tour and additional funds raised here will help us get started. I'll be performing at spiritual centers like my performance at The Center for Spiritual Living of Southern Nevada of Andra Day's beautiful song "Rise Up" captured in this video at minute 2:11 and also opening for some big name artists at concerts and festivals. I'll be performing covers as well as originals. I'll need to pay for a manager to help me secure some of these gigs and cover travel costs.
For this campaign to be successful we MUST reach $11,000. Should we exceed that goal we'll be able to do even bigger things.
Take a moment to browse the rewards I have created for you from my heart to celebrate your journey as you join mine. I’m sure you will find some fantastic rewards that call to you. I’ve set them up so you don’t have to miss out on much. The more you contribute, the more you receive and the more we each gain from this partnership.
Be sure to spread the word. Share this campaign with your community.
Thank you so very much for your part in the completion of my Debut Album, "Other Side of Blue", let’s finish this project and bring a little extra hope to the world together.
With love and thanks,
