I'm Norwood, an international pop artist from Atlanta, GA making my mark in the world of music and entertainment. I have a passion for singing and performing, and I hope that through my music I can help change the world! Visit my website for more info at norwood-music.com
Last year, (with the help of GoFundMe) I had the honor of representing the USA at World Pride Madrid 2017. I performed at the closing ceremonies for a crowd of 3 MILLION people ! There aren't enough words to decribe how grateful I am for this amazing life changing experience! Check out the footage of that performance:
As an openly gay artist, I'm very excited to announce TOUR DE FIERCE, an exclusive 4 month european tour that my team has created to continue my fight for EQUALITY! This summer, my manager Jayne and I will be traveling all over Europe performing at Pride Festivals, sharing my music and spreading the FIERCE message of LOVE and EQUALITY!
We've already booked shows in Spain (the Canary Islands), Italy, and Germany, and we have many more in the works. BUT I've saved the biggest news for last...I've been invited to perform at EUROPRIDE 2018 in Gottenburg, Sweden! This is the biggest Pride festival in all of Europe, and it's an incredible honor to perform there. The motto of this years festival is "We are the Voice of Change, fighting for the human right to be who you really are!" For more info, visit EuroPride 2018 .
I'm very honored to represent the USA and the LGBT community at these amazing events but unfortunately they don't all pay, so I've been working various jobs to earn the funds to make this tour happen. We just purchased our plane tickets to get us across the pond (yay!), but we still have lots of expenses to cover. With just 8 weeks until our departure on May 7, we could really use a little help from family & friends so my team has come up with some really cool rewards for you to purchase that I hope will interest you.
This limited edition t-shirt is one of the rewards for ONLY $50 (while supplies last) All sizes up to Adult 5XL
We are kicking off TOUR DE FIERCE on May 13, 2018 at Maspalomas Pride in Gran Caneria, Spain and will end at EuroPride 2018 in Gothenburg, Sweden on August 19, 2018! Watch for a complete tour schedule coming soon!
WHY IS TOUR DE FIERCE SO IMPORTANT?
My goal is to have a FIERCE voice in this noisy world so I can help stop homelessness and suicide in the LGBT community and beyond. This international tour will help strengthen my voice so I can be FIERCE and help those that are struggling to make their mark on the world be heard!
⭐️THE FUTURE WILL BE DIFFERENT! ⭐️
I envision a future where people in every country are free to be who they are, and love who they love! I’m spreading this message of equality on the TOUR DE FIERCE this Summer, and you can be a part of it!
BONUS: My mission is to always give back to causes close to my heart so we will be donating 10% of the proceeds to THE TREVOR PROJECT. Founded in 1998 by the creators of the Academy Award®-winning short film TREVOR, The Trevor Project is the leading national organization providing crisis intervention and suicide prevention services to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning (LGBTQ) young people ages 13-24. For more info, visit thetrevorproject.org.
Suicide prevention is a cause very close to my heart....
I personally went through some very dark years growing up gay. I felt very alone and confused, and I had a lot of self-hatred. While I never attempted suicide, I definitely considered it. I was blessed to have found friends who supported and accepted me, and helped get me through those tough times, but not every queer kid has that in their lives. The Trevor Project is a valuable resource to these kids that helps give them guidance, support, and shows them that "it gets better".
Here's how the money will be spent....
Note: Cost is for 2 - gotta take the manager to handle my affairs plus she booked the gigs so it's only fair ;)
* $1500 AIRFARE from ATL to London (a Delta friend gave us 2 buddy passes so we just had to pay fees/taxes)
* $2000 TRANSPORTATION within Europe
* $5000 LODGING for 4 months (we are seeking housesitting opportunities too so if you know of any, please let us know)
* $2000 MEALS for 4 months
* $2000 PRODUCTION (dancers, rehearsal spaces)
* $1,500 DONATION to The Trevor Project
As they say, "it takes a village" so let's get FIERCE and work together to make this world a kinder and safer place with EQUALITY for everyone! #lovewins #tourdefierce
Your support & generousity means the world to me - THANK YOU so very much from the bottom of my heart <3
Viva la vida!
