...and then I sang for Haiti.

I have your weekend plans ready for you. My friend Claire is co-producing a benefit concert of New York Artists to raise money for The GHESKIO Medical Center in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. Returning to my Long Island, NY roots, I'll be joining the incredible cast of NY singers, poets, dancers and actors including singer/songwriter Scott Alan, Janine Divita from Grease!, fellow Miss America contestant Leigh-Taylor Smith (Miss NY 2008) and many of the rising stars and voices you'll see in Broadway soon all hosted by the cast of Broadway's RACE We need YOU to finish our circle. So here goes:

In light of the recent disaster that has devastated Haiti, a group of New York artists are coming together to produce a benefit concert to fund medical relief. The music and voices of Broadway, the passion of spoken word and slam poetry, the rhythm of Indie rock, R&B and reggae will all come together in one night at The Canal Room in New York City. Sunday, February 28 at 8:00 pm, please join us in celebrating our gifts of song, word and laughter to benefit the Haitian people.

...and then I recorded my first rap single?

Ok, it's late and I need to rest before Miss America, but I HAD to post these. This is the culmination of a 6 month long project with Goodwill of Greater Washington. Enjoy!
