ONCE AGAIN, THANK YOU!
I am raising money for a Baha'i devotional record of very high quality with songs aiming the masses, particularly teens and young adults, infused with today's sound.
This is quite the project. Alongside the producers working on this record, we've made the following projection (below) of how much this album will cost. The amount is a little daunting for just one person to raise, but I know with the help of friends and supporters, this will be a project worth every penny!
Breakdown of costs:
--$8 000 for studio costs, production, engineering, mixing...
--$3000 for the manufacturing of 2000 CD's (to start)
--$1000 for mastering
--$1000 remaining for extra taxes, travel expenses, CD artwork, and other miscellaneous along the way
I thank you in advance for your donations! And please share this with your friends! It will be my pleasure to keep you all posted on the progress of this record. The projected time for completion is 3 months from when I get the funds to get this project on it's feet.
For a (minimum) $20 donation, you will be receiving the record by mail on its pre-release date. (release date still to be determined)
For anyone donating over $1000, there is also the option of making this a loan, if you wish. If this is the case, please contact me via email and we can consult on an agreement. Contracts/agreements will be formulated individually.
Work has already been started on this project. Now we need the funds to keep it rolling!

Enjoy the live performance of "Innocent in Heart"!!
"˜"˜...singing and music are the spiritual food of the hearts and souls. In this dispensation, music is one of the arts that is highly approved and is considered to be the cause of the exaltation of sad and desponding hearts... therefore ...set to music the verses and the divine words so that they may be sung with soul-stirring melody in the Assemblies and gatherings, and that the hearts of the listeners may become tumultuous and rise towards the Kingdom of Abha in supplication and prayer.''
