Hello, Friends!

I hope you are doing as well and staying safe during these uncertain times... In fact, I hope that you're actually having a GREAT week!

Today is my birthday! As I head into year #38, I have so many things to reflect on, be grateful for, and projects to look forward to... But it's way past my bedtime, so I will save that for another message. 😊

Indeed, this is just a quick note to let you know that I was recently featured alongside recording artist Lachi in The New York Times! Earlier this week we were interviewed about amplifying Disability Culture through the new disability-led music organization we co-founded this past summer called RAMPD: Recording Artists and Music Professionals with Disabilities! You can read the NYT article here.

Today we'll celebrate RAMPD's Official Launch - as well as my 38th birthday - on YouTube for the RAMPD Launch Party! πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‚πŸŽŠ Lachi is hosting and I am sharing the Master of Ceremonies duties with Atlanta-based hip-hop artist Question. I hope you can tune in for some amazing testimonials and musical performances by a wide variety of disabled artists. We'll also be talking about why Disability Culture is such an exciting, empowering concept. The show airs LIVE TODAY Friday, January 21st at 5pm Eastern... Tune in right here!

Get to know some of the amazing disabled artists whose music will be featured at the Launch Party by listening to the RAMPD Spotify Playlist ahead of the show... There's a little something for everyone!

Tell your friends, pour yourself a glass of champagne, and come party with us... See you soon!!!
