New Album, La Diva del Canto, Released!

I am SO happy to announce that my first Latin album with the Gold Band is finally released as of November 2015! I’m really excited to have produced my first production in Spanish. I’ve always loved Latin music and am so grateful for the chance to play with the Gold Band and to produce this project.

Links with the album to be posted soon!

Peace and Love,

The Little Things We Take for Granted

“The United Nations reports that just 43 percent of girls in developing nations attend secondary school — in large part because of poor access to feminine hygiene products that could make it easier for them to attend school during their so-called ‘week of shame.’ ”

I read this today in a Forbes article about THINX reusable panties and it made me very sad. Luckily, there are non-profits out there working to provide girls in developing countries safe and sustainable options: http://divacup.com/about-us/sustainability/

It’s amazing the little things we take for granted.

This is Huge

Nigeria has just band genital mutilation. Genital mutilation is nothing short of barbaric. I am so glad that I live in a country that protects me from horrible realities such as this one. Unfortunately so many others aren’t so lucky. The first step to helping them is awareness. I truly hope the Nigerian government enforces this new law and no girl should ever have to experience this brutality again. I also hope other countries who’s culture’s consider this procedure “traditional” will follow in Nigeria’s footsteps.
