My name is Collette, and I want to start a Revolution.

Well, I want to make a CD titled Revolution. This will be my 2nd independent release, and a lot of folks seem to be looking forward to it. The "revolution" I speak of is all about personal freedom... freedom to be happy, to live outside of perception or limitation, and to embrace yourself just as you are.

I've already written and composed the songs. Fantastic, well known producers have created the tracks, and really well-known artists have even agreed to duet with me... but I need a bit of assistance in the dinero department to make it all come together.

The dinero, or money, will be used to record, mix, master and print the CD project. It'll also be used for publicity, to help spread the Revolution across the world.

I feel that this project is something I was born to create. June 19th, the target release date, is my date of birth. And it's also a holiday called Juneteenth, the day American slaves in Texas found out they were free. (seriously... Google it! :)

So I kind of feel (as strange as it may sound), that the concept of making music and messages that will help people embrace their own freedom is tied up in my destiny. Go figure... :)

So, any assistance you can offer is super-appreciated... for me, it's worth more than anything.

Thanks!
