Dear friends and family,

I am excited to be singing with the Sing for America Chorus this year.  Sing for America (SFA) is a not-for-profit organization that helps people raise funds through singing. Last year, I was so honored to sing with the SFA Chorus. It was truly a delight to know that we were raising funds for chairities that we hold dear to our hearts. Together SFA raised over $125,000.

2013 SFA Chorus ConcertOver a 10-week period, I'll be rehearsing to perform in a big concert to be held on April 9, 2017Last year’s SFA concert featured incredible performances by the SFA Chorus, Tony Award-winner Michael Maguire, and SF Opera Adler Fellow Nicolle Foland.

This year's show will celebrate the 70s--the 1770s, 1870s, and 1970s.  We'll feature wonderful range of music from Mozart to Bizet to Gilbert & Sullivan to Sondheim to Queen. Now that's a lineup you don't see every day!

Unlike other organizations, SFA allows their members to direct where their contributions go.  I'll be raising money to help support Bridge The Gap College Preparatory AcadamyBridge the Gap College Prep believes that Marin City students have the ability and opportunity to go to college if given the appropriate academic support and life skills training starting in 1st grade. It is Their goal to intervene as early as possible, instill a college going mindset from a young age through high school, provide a continuum of age-appropriate academic support, life skills enrichment activities and experiences and equip them with the self-determination to achieve their college completion goal

This organization was insrumental in making me who I am today. I owe my life, my music, and my love of helping others to Bridge the Gap. I hope you will help me to pay it forward to an organization who does just that with their mission to help the youth of marin city to have a brighter future and achieve academic success. Above is a video of a speech I made for the bridge the Gap Vines and visions Gala this year on March 16th. 

Please help me support my charity and the Sing for America Foundation by making a tax-deductible donation above.  The process is fast, easy, and secure.
