I was blessed with a good education. When I was a child, I was fortunate to have parents who read to me and encouraged me to read. As a musician, I have been an advocate for using the arts to enrich a student’s educational experience and in particular to teach language arts.
In the process, I have followed and supported the development and growth of a stellar Chicago non-profit organization called Reading In Motion. Founded in 1983 by a couple of Chicago musicians who identified a need, they used their creative energies to focus on finding a more effective way to teach at-risk primary grade level children how to read. Their organization has created an innovative curriculum, which uses the arts to teach reading, that has moved it to the forefront of literacy education.
I am proud to support this organization and $5 from the sale of every digital album download and physical CD, beginning with the recent release of my new album last September, will be donated to Reading In Motion.
We can all make a difference, and it doesn’t have to cost a lot. Let’s join together and support every child’s need to read!
Spread some love, light, and good cheer for the holidays and keep some for yourself!
When you order a physical CD, you also will receive an immediate digital download of the album.
