Really enjoyed the fall tour. Soon, I'm off to Chile to do a master class with women singer/songwriters, several concerts, attend demonstration to stop violence against women, visit Villa Grimaldi (infamous prison now turned peace park), be part of a gathering of “Trovadoras Sin Fronteras” (women singers without borders) and a fundraiser where they want me to sing show tunes and songs from the American Songbook!
My niece Fredrika Keefer joins me and will do master classes in modern and hip hop. She will also be my translator. Christelle Durandy (singer, producer, arranger from Cocomama) will sing with me, play percussion and also translate. Jan Martinelli accompanies me on piano and guitar.
We are asking for support to help cover the cost of airline tickets, lodging, meals, ground transportation and a contribution to the sponsoring organization, EPES, who work predominately with women and children in poor neighborhood, empowering them to become leaders and teachers in their communities.
