Happy New Year Everyone!
I can't tell you how many times I've been asked this question since I started singing professionally two years ago, "Do you have an album I can buy?" I am so grateful to be in the position of finally knowing that what I have to offer is worthwhile. It's taken me a long time to reach this place of belief. But now that I find myself in the remarkable position of having institutions like Rolling Stone (RollingStone.com) and Vogue (see video above and live at ItalianVogue.com) looking my way, I need to get a product out into the world!!! So I am humbly asking for your help to produce my debut EP.
For those of you who don’t know me personally, a little miracle happened two years ago. I was deep in my desk job reality when Moby came along and chose me to go on tour with him! Green as a cucumber, I had never been on tour and hadn't been on stage in nearly a year when it happened. But by the grace of God, I learned a truth I may have never known: that I was born to sing and perform for people! So I gave up all semblance of my previous financial security in order to follow my joy and my calling. That's why I’m asking for your financial support to help me create a product that will allow me to broaden my audience and get on the way to making this dream come true!
A NOTE ABOUT KICKSTARTER: I will only receive funds (and you will only be charged for your donation) if the minimum goal is reached. But on February 22nd, if the minimum goal is not reached, no money will be transacted. So out of caution I set my minimum goal $2500 under budget so that I wouldn't loose everything if I couldn't raise the funds completely.
GOAL TO RAISE (minimum) - $5,500 I'm hoping to exceed this minimum goal by about $2500 which will enable me to cover all costs including: studio time, musicians fees, recording, production, mixing & mastering, pressing and distribution of my debut three song EP. It is an expensive undertaking and this is the only budget I'll have to work with. So know that I absolutely could not do this without you! If by chance I go over that amount, those funds would go towards: more songs, a music video, and even a tour, so I can come out and sing for you!
It's easy, and quick! Just click the big green button that says "BACK THIS PROJECT" located to the right of my video. It takes about 2 minutes to complete the entire process :) Be a part of my story by helping me achieve this critical step of creating a product so I can share my voice with you and spread the word!!! I can't do it without you! If you have any questions please use the "send a message" link at the top of my profile page.
Love, Blessings & Happy New Year! Inyang (((:-*
