Thank you for taking the time out to view this campaign. My name is Tommie Billups. I am a singer/songwriter and musician. I am in the process of releasing my new single, "Sleepers". This song captures the very essence of whats going on in the world. With all of the violence, hatred, racism, inequalities and injustices, the world is in so much pain right now.
Sleepers is a call out to all of those people who are agents of change. We have been sleep for so long, being blind to the issue of our fellow brothers and sisters of the world and this song is an anthem that empowers and inspires everyone to be the change that the world needs.
After recording this song, I decided that it needs a video so that people can truly experience the song in totality. Shooting a music video like this takes a lot of time and money. Although I recently sign a distribution deal with a major record label, I am not supported financially by that label. A lot of the foot work that goes into making a song and a video successfully reach a large audience, takes a lot of investment. So I am humbly asking you all - friends, family and supporters to help me get my project completed! Any amount/contribution is most welcomed/appreciated. Not a dime of your contribution will be wasted.
I am very passionate about my music and my desire for the world to hear it. With your help we can make that happen. Here is a clip of an original song called "Hope"
All proceeds will help pay for:
-Video post production

Risks and challenges
If my project is funded, I will be in a position to complete my music video for Sleepers. I want you all to enjoy listening to this music and experiencing the video, as much I enjoy creating it.
Launching a Kick Starter feels incredibly vulnerable and risky. Like many artists (& introverts), I'm not as comfortable with asking and promoting but I've decided that our experience will be shaped by NOTHING less than what really matters - the music, purpose and people.
The goal is to have the video complete by mid October and release at the end of that month. That is going to take A LOT of hard work, time and commitment from ALL involved. Often we hear the finished product but do not consider the process of getting there.
