Not Me This Time

Hello all.

I don't know about the rest of you, but I am sure ready for winter to be over. I've had enough of the white stuff. Rather than write an entry about where I'm at (hint, hint), I thought I use this entry to support a fellow artist. An acting colleague of mine name Cinti is taking the bull by the horns and raising funds via Kickstarter to Bring the Music to you. Kickstarter is a new way for filmmakers, producers, and artists to fund creative ideas and ambitious endeavors. Bring the Music is a live weekly comedy, variety, stand-up competition she created in 1999 and hosted in Manhattan for two consecutive years through 2001.

 Cinti initially pitch her idea to the Oprah Winfrey Network in Oprah's OWN TV show competition. Although she was not selected, she's not giving up on her idea and dream. I know what that is like. It's not enough to have an idea, an individual has to have the passion to pursue it and needs the support of others. We all have a story to share and Bring the Music is Cinti's. To learn more about Cinti's Bring the Music project by clicking on this link, https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/652976123/bring-the-music-the-movie.

As always thanks for reading.

Thanks Aaliyah for sharing about Bring The Music with your readers. Actually Cinti's Comedy Pageant is the live comedy, variety show I did for two consecutive years in Manhattan crowing two comic's of the year. Bring The Music is based on Cinti's Comedy Pageant but is quite a different show because it hosts live bands in the ultimate battle of the Bands finally crowing one band Band of The Year adn awarding them cash, prizes, tours and hopefully a recording contract..
