Help an artist to fulfill their dream turning 50
Yodelayeehuuu to 2 new albums and a music video
My name is Manuela Horn and as I approach turning 50 years old it is time to achieve several life goals/desires.
I am writing this gofundme and requesting your help because I want to challenge myself to make 2023 the most creative and productive year of my life by recording two albums and filming two music videos.
Album One captures my Oktoberfest Side with some of my beer-themed yodeling versions of top 40 songs & will be great party music featuring my band and some guest performers. The challenge here will be following in Weird Al’s footsteps and getting the rights to popular music after having changed the words.
Album Two will be called Mono E Manu and will feature duet versions of songs performed by me & one instrument. It is a stripped down more vulnerable collection of cabaret, jazz, & German songs I love. This will be an adventure through colorful emotions and be good dinner party or long drive listening.
For those of you who do not know me, I am known as the Austrian Amazon & the Queen of Oktoberfest. I am a clown/comedian, presenter, host, singer, & yodeler based in Seattle with a home at Teatro Zinzanni since 2001 and with Pomp Duck & Circumstance in Berlin before TZ. My brand of comedy is transformational clown based and my favorite place to perform is in the mirrored palace Spiegel tents from the turn of the century or in environmental theaters.
Thank you so much for considering sponsoring my projects. Every penny you give goes directly to the dearest artists, musicians, recording engineers and maybe a little to an attorney if they promise help getting the rights to publish some songs.
Much Love and best wishes for your new year!!!
