I'm making my debut album and would love for you to preorder a CD.

For $19, you'll receive a signed copy of the album, a handwritten thank-you, a shout-out, and a free gift from Starbucks. If that sounds good to you, take a look to your right, click on the green “Back this Project” button, and let's make some music!

If you would like to be super-awesome and preorder more than just one copy, check out the amazing prizes and experiences that will be included! All of the prizes were donated by the following people & companies, which have been instrumental in my success, and I am extremely thankful for their generosity!

What should you know about me, the album, and the entire project?
Recently, I sang for Simon Cowell and some of his friends and he told me that there was a definite place for my type of music and for me as a vocalist. I happen to believe him. So, I'm going after the big dream-to be a legitimate recording artist and claim the #1 spot on the Classical Crossover Billboard Chart.

Goals for the album:

•Make some beautiful music!
•Establish my sound as the female Josh Groban!
•Use my voice to make people around the world smile!
•Inspire people to go after their dreams!
•To hit #1 on the Classical Crossover Billboard Chart!
•To record a duet with Josh Groban!
•To open the doors to more performance opportunities!
•To be noticed by David Foster!
•To have the #1 single the week before Christmas!

What is it really going to cost?I have budgeted out the project to cost $13,970 in its entirety. Here is a breakdown of where the money goes:

•Top Notch Studio Musicians from New York City including:
 strings, brass, woodwinds, drums, guitar, and piano
•Studio Space
•Song Arrangements
•Song Licensing
•CD Packaging and Reproduction
•CD Graphics/Photography
•Mix Engineer
•Kickstarter Fees
•Amazon Processing Fees
•Shipping Costs

I'm saving money on production costs and audio equipment because my husband is producing the album for free. Well, not free. For kisses. 

I would love to rock the pre-ordered sales out of the park and get to making beautiful music!
