A-21 Benefit Concert Report & Artist of the Month!

Filed under: Shows,Updates — Hope on September 27, 2011 @ 4:57 pm

Hello beautifuls!

The September 19th Benefit Concert was an incredible success! About 50 people showed up in support of the cause to watch me and 3 other singer songwriters rock our jams. Elana Brody opened up the show wailing out some meaty tunes while pounding the ivory keys. She was followed by the beautiful Trinidad native, Annya Li, who graced us with lovely acoustic melodies as well as a wicked Caribbean style rap. Then I along with my sister, Faith Gilmore, sang our songs for the remainder of the benefit. It was awesome to be able to back one another up with sisterly harmonies. Faith’s vivacious performance included songs from her latest album, Bold as Lions, and I sang about 7 of my own tunes, one of them being a newbie entitled “Traffic”, based on the issue at hand. Thanks to David Glickstein (guitar), Jason Arce (guitar), Johnny Wolf (cajon) and their hard work in playing both of our tunes the set went smoothly.

It was evident that the room was filled with a incredible energy and everyone seemed to have an enjoyable evening. Much thanks to the generous donations of the guests in attendance, a $100 donation from The Red Lion, and A-21 merchandise that was sold, together we raised nearly $600. I am so blessed to have had the help of everyone that made the idea of this show a reality, and now because of it women and men who have been trafficked will receive much needed aid and more people are aware. Approximately 27 million people are trafficked in order to generate $40 billion a year. I hope to continue raisingĀ  awareness of this terrible crime and ask that you take the time to see what you can do in your own community to bring about recognition of the harsh reality of what some people will do to make a dollar.

Also I am currently NYC Tastemakers’ Artist of the Month! Go here to see!

Thanks so much for your support!

Love

Faith Gilmore- Bold As Lions

If I had a way to blare it from the rooftops I would, if I had a supersonic magic megaphone that would reach the nations I’d use it for this: People are definitely prone to assume I am so enthusiastic merely because the subject matter is my sister, but trust me if she weren’t so freeking amazing as a singer/songwriter I wouldn’t waste my time. Faith Gilmore’s (www.faithgilmore.com) newest album, Bold as Lions, couldn’t be more relevant and more enjoyable. The production quality is top notch and Faith’s voice has been stretched to a whole new level. I am having trouble picking a favorite track, it’s probably a tie between five different songs. Faith has somewhat created a new genre using a language in song that sings to Jerusalem in pop form. This album is a message to the nations on both a personal and global level. I find it to be nothing less than important, catchy, intimate, beautiful, deep and super professional in quality. I am convicted to say that this album encourages our spirits to be lifted and aids us in reaching truth. Do yourself a favor and check it out on itunes now. Faith Gilmore: Bold as Lions
