Hi, my name is Blessing Bess Otobo JT. I love to sing, and write songs, screen plays, drama, and books. I am a self-published author of four books, and one of which is 'Life Is About Decisions Life Is About Love.'
I want to turn one of my books, ' Her American Dreams,' into a movie, and I wish to hire a professional illustrator to illustrate my first book, 'The Moths On The Changing Bark,' I want the book to come alive so everyone who reads it can see the imagery of the story, and I believe you will enjoy reading the story as you see the illustrations.
The money to produce the movie would cost me more than $50, 000, and the illustration work for my book would cost at least $5000 to pay a good illustrator, to do the illustration, but I am not asking for $55,000, although that would save me a whole loads of time when I get that amount right away. What I am asking is ten thousands dollars, ($10,000) to produce an inspirational song I was impressed upon and the music video. This particular song, "I WILL SCREAM AND SHOUT FROM THE MOUNTAIN TOP," is a very special track. I love to sing, although not every who knows me knows that aspect about me, and I don't think it is too late to do anything of joy in life. I am asking that you support my Kickstarter project to produce the songs I have written, and the music video for one of my songs.
My very first book, The Moths on The Changing Bark,' is very dear to me because it is the book that helped me get published. One of the inspiration to completing this book was Oprah Winfrey. Oprah’s life and gift of storytelling on her show, the Oprah Winfrey Show have been instrumental in inspiring me to do something that I love. Your donation would help me pay a professional producer to produce my songs, and perhaps complete my Nigerian cook book which I know would inspire someone somewhere.
The reason for soliciting for support with this project is because I have reached a point in my life, where I know it’s almost ridiculous to think that one can do it all alone without asking for support from other people. The prompt to publish my Kickstarter project, is so that I can do what I love to do; produce the songs that has been impressed upon my heart, and the music videos. I want to sing my songs and write more stories and hopefully create a world that would inspire and educate others.
I love to educate, and I believe one of the ways that we can contribute something meaningful to the world is to share the gift we've been given. HABIBA AND ME: SOME PEOPLE ARE BORN DIFFERENT is a story that is very dear, and I want you to click the link above and support me. I love to write and I want to share the stories that I wrote with love and appreciation. It took a long time to come to this point where I seem to have conquered the fear of shame, because I don’t want to be judged. But, hey, why care about what people would say if you are living your truth.?
When you support me through Kickstarter, it would help me to complete my songs, produce the music video, which will ender me to complete my other manuscripts. When you support me through Kickstarter, I will send you a copy of any of my books if you donate over $25.00 to my project, and I will also send two of my books, and a link to download this particular song to people who donate $100.00 when the song is completed.
Ideas were not given to remain dormant in the mind and never to be heard, but were given to uplift others. I have held back moving forward with the idea of singing because I thought singing is for the teens; but nothing in life is impossible I have been told, and no time is too late to accomplish a task where you are still alive. You just must believe in what it is you want to do no matter how ridiculous the dream may seem at first to you.
I believe I have been given the wonderful gift of writing, and I wish to share the songs I have been impressed upon with others. I want the funds requested to pay the producers to complete the song and music video.
Why do I want you to support me with my Kickstarter project, because we are connected, and helping me would help another human being. When you fund my Kickstarter project, it would help raise money to start my project and would also help me provide for a child who have been hurt by the decisions that are not entirely his, and may not have served him too well. I want to make a positive change in someone else’s live.
You funding my project would help me raise awareness about other issues dear to me: The issue of Sickle Cell Anaemia, and how it affect families in my country. I will like to share my personal experience about the effect of Sickle Cell Anaemia, and how it has affected those very close to me; but that would be a topic for another day.
The purpose of writing a book is so people read it, and use the tools embedded in the book to help themselves, and perhaps others. The purpose of writing and singing a song is to share the gift of love, and I hope you would help me fulfil that gift of love when you support my project.
Thank you, and be Blessed.
Please donate to my Kickstarter project.
Risks and challenges
The common risk that I may face is not having enough backing from people. So, I ask you, to please support me, because where you do, I will be able to complete my project.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
