About this project

This campaign is to raise funds for me to create my new CD!  My original EP contained only 5 songs and it did amazingly well. Now, I want to deliver to you a full CD worth of songs that give you what I love to give via my voice and my music - love, inspiration, hope, courage, dreams, strength, healing, happiness...I could go on. 

The critics are saying I am the next Barbara Streisand, Celine Dion and Adele. Yahoo Music! said I am the next Celine Dion. Vivoscene magazine called me the next great American voice since Streisand. iHeartRadio and Clear Channel chose me as a "New! Discover & Uncover Artist" and "Artist to Watch."  

However, this not why I do this...

If you go to my website, www.ginazavalis.com right on the home page you will see my mission statement:

"TO EVOKE SOMETHING...A MOMENT, A MEMORY, AN EXPERIENCE THROUGH MY PERFORMANCE SO THEY CAN WALK AWAY WITH SOMETHING MEANINGFUL AND TRANSFORMATIVE, THIS IS MY MISSION"

So many of you have sent me notes, cards, emails and letters, thanking me for giving them the inspiration and strength to get through tough moments in their lives. Some of you have written me to say how my music has brought you encouragement and pure happiness via a positive attitude. 

YOU are why I do this. YOU are whom I want to help and inspire. YOU help me and an incredible support, a huge inspiration that keeps ME moving forward. 

If you pledge to be a part of the making of my CD, don't forget the critical part you play. You will become a part of a creative project that comes directly from me and my heart.  

I encourage you to take a look at the incentives. Some of them are pretty cool!  I'll come to your living room and do a live concert, sing Happy Birthday to you or a loved on over the phone, give an aspiring singer a 1/2 hour voice lesson via Skype, and...among other incentives, you can be named as Executive Producer on my new CD! 

By the way - all of these make great gifts as well! Especially if you know someone who is a fan of mine :) Or, treat yourself! 

I encourage you and ask you to please help out, in anyway you can. I am truly thankful from the bottom of my heart for every pledge placed! 

Lots of love,

Gina xx

Risks and challenges

My challenge and reward will be to work with my producers to create fresh, new, contemporary, moving music for all my fans to continue enjoying. I tend to be a bit of a perfectionist, so this will be a personal challenge for me and my hope is that is will be a beautiful reward for you.

This CD will be filled with emotion, love, labor and pure emoting from my heart, which you will hear in my voice as I sing.

I want the music on my new CD to soar into your heart as it soars out of mine.

I do this FOR YOU.

Much Love,
Gina xx
