Anita Moore's studio recording/production $raiser!

$3,930 of $5,200 goal

Raised by 52 people in 4 months
Hello my dearest Community,

Literally all my life people have said to me, "Anita, seriously, why aren't you pursuing music and singing professionally?" This year, I am doing just that (and more...) and started the recording phase of my first full-length album entitled Surrendering To The Sacred Demos .  I'm so excited about this project and your help is key in making it real!  Last summer with everyone's help, I quit my Summer job waiting tables and I completed all the demos (listen by clicking the link above) and finished up the songs themselves. Then I started working in the fall with my 9th year with Democracy Matters, mentoring young political organizers to get big money out of politics and this past Spring, I also started teaching Critical Thinking at Alamance Community College.

I really don't want to badger people all the time, so I don't send out emails... basically ever.  However, if everyone I know donated $5, I could most definitely cover most production and recording costs. Facebook only reaches some folks I know and this is more personal, I hope.

So here's the breakdown:  It's $40 an hour for recording in the studio and with production/reproduction it adds up to about $5200+ for the project.  I've raised about $695 so far over the last few weeks!  I've been working extra hard to save and performing shows. I've been putting all I make into a jar!  I even started another side-gig reading tarot cards (another side-passion of mine since I was a teenager) to raise extra dough. 

If you can help, You have until the album is in production to donate!

5% of the fundraiser goes to https://www.rainn.org/  As a sexual abuse and incest survivor myself, I have dedicated this album to all the brave people who have come forward in recent years to stand up for themselves and others, in hopes to emancipate our world from the same violent oppression.  My name change from Kinney to Moore (my grandparents') is a direct result of these experiences. Amazing what's in a name.

RAINN (Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network) is the nation's largest anti-sexual violence organization. RAINN created and operates the National Sexual Assault Hotline (800.656.HOPE) in partnership with more than 1,000 local sexual assault service providers across the country.

On June 26th (that'll be a year since I changed my name to my grandparents' last name, Moore) and I'll be releasing each song on the album in the following weeks.

So much love yall. This last year has been transformational.  Through therapy and self-healing work I have been called to encapsulate my life experience through the making of art, music and this sacred album, thriving and growing into a whole, creative human.

I thank all of you for your support and love,

Anita Lorraine Moore
