I am making my solo cabaret debut in New York City this year at Don't Tell Mama.  After opening the show (5 performances) in NYC, I'll be doing one performance in Dallas, TX and one in my hometown of Snyder, TX. 

The cost of putting together a quality show can be daunting for one person to undertake, so I'm here to raise the funds to make this part of my dream a reality.  I'm working with my voice teacher Aaron Hagan, music director Doyle Newmyer and director Shawn Moninger to put together a top notch hour of entertainment.  I'm currently seeking out venues in both Dallas and Snyder for the performances in November.  I haven't performed in my hometown in almost 20 years.  I look forward to sharing my journey - the good, the bad & the ugly - with others in an often humorous and sometimes poignant fashion.

The show consists of some original songs being written for me specifically for this show, covers of familiar and not so familiar pop/country/christian/theatre songs, and other more obscure music that I have found and grown quite fond of over the years.  Some brand new...some tried and true.

The money will cover the costs of voice lessons, arrangements, rehearsals, instrumentalists, director, music director, videographer, airfare, car rental, cabaret room rentals and publicity.

This is an ALL OR NOTHING type of website, so if I don't meet the goal of $6,000 the project goes unfunded.  They do allow us to SURPASS the goal though! ;-)

Thank you for your generosity.  I'll see you at the show!
