Support Deborah SLO

My name is Deborah, and I am a jazz vocalist in San Luis Obispo. I have suffered a very tragic event that has left me houseless for quite some time and I use music to navigate my situation while I’ve been trying to secure safe, long term housing. The search has taken an excessive amount of time and money spent in a motel, as I have encountered a number of unforeseen challenges due to COVID-19 and the stigma around homelessness and the color of my skin.  

I am still in need of additional funds to transition into more permanent housing. You can support me by donating to this campaign directly, through Venmo (@nmskinner), or by purchasing my current CD, “So Nice” (a tribute to Diana Krall). I also have a Christmas CD available for sale. To place an order for either CD, contact me through mobettajazzmusic at gmail or by clicking the "Contact" button on this page.

Most recently, I’ve performed my music around San Luis Obispo, including locations like Hotel SLO and Mama’s Meatball under the name of ‘Mo Betta Jazz. In total, I’ve performed 24 shows and collaborated with over 40 different professional musicians on the Central Coast. By securing housing, I will gain the stability I need to work on more substantial projects and further my professional career in music.

Thank you for your support and I look forward to updating you on my progress!
