You have all been so supportive of my music endeavors, and I will remain eternally grateful for the love that you've shown me since day one.
How It All Started:
When I began my YouTube channel - www.youtube.com/vokhal - back in April 2014, I wasn't really sure where my music journey would take me or how long it would last. But I did know that I wanted to stay true to my love of pop soul music, and so I was very selective about the songs that I sang.
I also knew that I had to set goals for myself, and then continue to move back the finish line towards a new milestone every time I achieved one of those goals.
All The Progress So Far:
After 3 years, 45 music videos of cover songs, 2 million views, and a combined social media following of over 10,000 fans, I am SO excited to finally be able to begin working on my own original music! Everyone has been so receptive to the cover songs that I have done, but I know that you have all been patiently waiting to hear what I have to say musically and in my own words.
And just like the 45 music videos of cover songs that I made with the help of some truly amazing people, I know that completing this current project of my own original music will require support. However, that support will need to come from an even bigger village........one that includes all of you!
So that's why I've decided to start this fundraising campaign to ask all of you for your help.
The Process, The Plan, The Goal:
As independent artists, we have to absorb all of the upfront costs required to write, produce, record, mix, master, and distribute all of our own music. And while I have been saving up a pretty considerable budget for this project, I could certainly use some additional help from all of you. Whether you contribute $15 or $100 or even more to this campaign, I will definitely never forget your generosity.
Right now, my plan is to release my first original album by March 2018. But of course, the more funds I can raise quickly, the sooner I can have everything done and ready to share with the world!
How You Can Help:
There's still a lot to do and even more to do once everything is done. ;-) But every donation brings me one step closer to a final product, so please feel free to share this fundraising campaign with your family and friends once you've completed your donation.
I very much appreciate you taking the time to read all of this, and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for all of your continued support!
Love & Hugs,
