Album that lets you experience what happens when you Make Belief. Ingredients:Ambition, Sugar, Imagination and Your Support.

Have you ever felt connected to something greater than yourself? Have you ever had an out of body experience? Or maybe you're familiar with that exciting feeling of giving a special gift to someone. 

Well, every time I perform, I'm connected with something far greater than myself and many times it's an out of body experience. It's what I live for. It's why I'm here. It's who I am. 

In reality, my music dreams aren't possible without financial support. In essence, I need your help. This is the closest I've been to reaching these goals. However, the lack of funding is holding me back. Most of the ingredients are in place, opportunity being the most important. Unfortunately, the means aren't there (not yet at least) and without a label it's almost impossible, because I am responsible for funding. 

Last May, I was blessed with an opportunity to enter a 30 Day Vocal Challenge sponsored by Kurt Robinson and Broadway Dance Center. Out of 85 contestants I won a meeting with Bill Herndon (President of ESP/Atlantic Records). Winning this prize was very humbling.

Since winning, we've both been working together getting everything prepared to present to SONY, Universal, Warner Music Group and the President of Atlantic Records,  I'm very close to something I've worked so hard for, and tremendously excited!

Your help will enable me to present a finished product to these companies. Completing the album includes recording cost, mixing and mastering. I will also be able to afford the two incredible photographers I've had my eyes on. Finally, I can begin rehearsing my talented dancers and be able to pay them what they deserve. Lastly, funding would cover expenses for my team and I to travel and perform at venues I have booked already!

In conclusion, getting this far has been quite the journey. A very fun journey. I've put my heart and soul into every aspect you can imagine. 

Please help me and support in giving this dream the attention I know it deserves. Thank you :)

In Excellence,

CJ
