May I have your help to start my tour ?
I started singing at the tender age of 5 year old. I grew u with music all around me... in my home , school bands , and choirs, church , weddings , funerals and more . It wasn't until I reached High school, that I realized that I wanted to pursue music professionally and take it to the next level. Along the years , I have been in a 3 girl music group called " Modesty " and a rap group called " The Rat Pac". We've all moved on to other things , but I still could not , and still can't stop doing what I love and that's singing and performing in front of a loving and warm crowd.
- So then I took my shot and started recording my own music , and after 10 long years , I released my first debut album , entitled " First Born" , (in dedication to my late mother , who recently passed in 2011). I also named it First Born , because I am her first , and this album was my first born to the world. My release was August 31,2013 . If you'd like to check it out it's available here on : CD Baby
My Album has been doing pretty well and getting thousands of positive responses and a lot of radio play in the South and the UK especially ! Now is the time I should begin touring down south, where I have been given the opportunity to perform on tour. but boy oh boy is touring quite expensive ! That's why I've come to Indiegogo , in hopes that maybe YOU , could give me an extra hand.
In order to make this a reality I need to cover some expenses and in order to do that in a pure way, I NEED YOUR HELP.
