About

Welcome to the Suzzette Michaels Christmas EP Kickstarter campaign! 

We appreciate you taking time to learn more about our project. Suzzette has been singing since she was old enough to walk, and she’s released numerous Gospel albums in recent years. You can check out Suzzette’s complete bio and listen to her music on her website or facebook page…

But one thing that Suzzette has never done… record a Christmas album. We’re using this Kickstarter campaign to make that happen. We’ve set a goal of $7,000 to fund Suzzette’s first Christmas EP. You can make a financial pledge to help us reach this goal, and if the goal is met you’ll receive certain rewards based on the amount of your pledge. You’ll see those rewards outlined down the right side of this page. We know you’ll have questions, so we’ve done our best to answer them here…

How do I make a pledge? Simply review the pledge options on this page and select the desired one. You’ll be directed to Amazon.com where you’ll complete the checkout process.

When will my credit card be charged?
Your credit card won’t be charged until the end of the campaign, and then only if the goal is successfully reached.

What if the goal isn't reached?
If we don’t reach our goal of $7,000 the project will be discontinued. Your credit card will not be charged and you will not receive the reward for your pledge.

What songs are going to be included?
That’s the question of the day, and so far Suzzette isn’t giving many hints. This is an EP (not a full length album), and will include 5 or 6 songs.  We know it will include some of your traditional favorites, and since nothing is set in stone yet we welcome your recommendations in the comments section.

When can I expect to get my reward?
The beauty of Suzzette’s Christmas EP campaign is that it helps you fill your Christmas list! What better stocking stuffer than the sounds of the season. If the project is successfully funded the recording will begin immediately and we expect to have CDs delivered to you in plenty of time for Christmas. If your reward is the Mahogany Keepsake Box or Serving Tray that incorporates Suzzette’s original artwork we’ll do our best to have those to you before Christmas, but no guarantees. And if your reward is one of Suzzette’s original oil paintings… you likely won’t get that before Christmas (unless we chain Suzzette to her easel).

What if the goal is surpassed? If we raise more than $7,000 we’ll put it toward expanding the scope of this project. This might include increasing the number of songs to be recorded.

$7,000 is a lot of money. How is that to be used?
Most of the money is used to fund the recording of Suzzette’s Christmas EP. The album will be recorded at Funhouse Studios (www.funhousestudios.com) and we use some of Nashville’s top musicians. The rest is used to cover other expenses. Here’s a general breakdown of the budget:

$5,000 – Recording, production, mixing, mastering, background vocals, and required royalties.
$1,000 – CD manufacturing
$1,000 – Kickstarter.com fees (5%), shipping costs, and physical product costs (keepsake box, serving tray, artist canvases, etc).


Thanks again for taking the time to review Suzzette’s Christmas EP Kickstarter campaign. We hope you’ll consider participating. If you’d like additional information, just use the Ask a question button at the bottom of this page.
