UPDATE December 20, 2020: We have now turned off the fundraising, as we have now raised over $19,000. It is just astounding to us the outpouring of love and support we feel.
Words cannot express my gratitude to everyone who has contributed or shared our GoFundMe, or shared videos or offered prayers, and good vibes (which mean just as much to us!!). Our dear friends, family, and perfect strangers have now met & surpassed our $10,000 goal for Scott's surgery.
Our virtual concert will continue as we try to come up with a way to give back our love and thanks. Tears are freely flowing. We are so grateful. You can view the entire/updated and most recent videos for this concert on this playlist here:
"Becoming a mother changed me. I have more love, passion, and fulfillment in life; which in turn, enriches my artistry. Please join me in normalizing motherhood within the performing artist's culture."

"Think Outside Your Box" means 3 things:
1. Be Selfless - think beyond your own "box". (and for singers, there's more to life than your voice box!) You're capable of helping and healing others.
2. Feel Empowered to bust out of the proverbial
"box" made of societally-induced-parameters.
3. Be Bold. Innovate. Stretch yourself. You can do anything if you set your mind to it.
