DALNY's Singing Persona:
My name is Dalny Valdes , born Jan 24 1968 I'm an Aquarius and an American Singer, a member of SAG/AFTRA, the actor's union AFL-CIO and the daughter of a deceased Electrical Engineer and MIT Masters graduate, Sergio F. Valdes.
This is 1 of my 2 fundraisers, my first fundraiser is for my art gallery, DMVAG.
I am a painter and a Singer, so this is my fundraiser to advance and improve my singing persona; for example there are goods, supplies and equipment needed to enable me to compete in the music industry.
I am fundraising to buy clothes, hair and makeup products such as hair bleach and color, pay union dues, and recording equipment and the like such as a CD recording burner, etc to enable me to make YouTube videos and make and sell song recordings.
PLEASE NOTE: these funds with not, under any circumstances be used to "chase" my dream, in other words I will not solicit the music industry nor try to audition or actively seek singing work. I know from experience that this is a wild goose chase, having worked as a movie and TV extra for Central Casting from 1995 until 2015, about 20 years (The Great White Hype, BlackSheep, etc. ) This experience taught me that I enjoy singing rather than acting and I won't sell-out my vocal talent by soliciting anyone who works in the music/movie industry
My plan is to create my Singing Persona and sell CDs of me singing and dancing and if union studio jobs are offered to me I will accept or decline on a case by case basis. I have a Singing Demo 3 copies on CDs from 2014 and was on stage as a ballet dancer in 1978.
I am currently an inactive member of SAG/AFTRA, but in good standing, meaning I don't owe the union any money, but I am in an inactive status until I pay a biyearly due of about $120.00 which would enable studios to find and contact me through the union channels
