Indiegogo BackUp (2)

 

OVERVIEW
It’s May 4th, 2016 at 6:32 pm, exactly! I get this text from Shayla … [My life sucks. I’m going to jail for two years] I text back … [Where are you?] Shayla … [Sitting on the wall where we longboard] [I’m ready to hop off] That wall; it’s a 4 foot retaining wall. But, it’s on top of a ten story parking garage in downtown Tampa. Then it’s dead silence.

Notes:

1. ‘Shayla’ __ definition derived from the Gaelic language of 5th century Ireland

2. All songs on the video soundtracks are originals or covers performed by the girls

 

 

 

 

Don’t Stop Believing

 

 

the album called; Shayla

This summer we have seven of the original 20 girls singing on the Shayla album proving that sometimes dreams are more than just make-believe.

the App called: Shayla

Next, we touch the hearts of girls everywhere. It’s the Shayla App. It’s cool. It’s like a virtual X-factor. It’s cool stacked on¬†top of cool! Yes, yes, yes!!!

Girls click on the Shayla app. Then¬†sing their favorite cover or an original song they wrote and poof. It’s on the #ShaylaApp. Then like #’s trending on Twitter¬†the real-time hottest songs are displayed like the paid advertising videos on Snapchat, BUT, it’s¬†disadvantage, marginalized teen girls singing videos from¬†all over the world. And there are tons of them. In fact, 3 billion people on this planet survive on less that $5 a day.

The world will pick their new #Shayla story. The songs original songs with the highest trending statistics will be on next years Shayla album. We will record in the closest studios to the girls with the selected album songs all over the world.

Let’s give a smile¬†of music to these very precious girls living on the concrete of the inner-cities worldwide, huddled in pitch black basements¬†with the bombs falling overhead. They will smile a smile as wide as they can¬†stretch their arms to each side. And for a moment in time, their life won’t¬†totally suck! #UpGlobalAwesome

 

For girls like Shayla, who age-out of group homes at 18, by 19:

51% are pregnant                             

47% have been arrested  

20% __ are instantly homeless 

less than 3% __ graduate college

Third time abandoned, after a week of¬†nothing but five¬†cans of corn and a box of soda crackers,¬†Shayla¬†called¬†the CEO asking¬†to go to McDonalds. She¬†was 13 living in¬†group home when we first heard her sing. She said her dad lived in another state, but she never saw¬†him. Her only contact with him being the¬†$100 for Christmas sent in¬†the mail. As it turns out, her father lived three¬†miles away¬†the whole time.¬†Shayla, now homeless again, is¬†precipitating launching this campaign. Enough is enough of this stupidity; they pretend they don‚Äôt see and turn their heads. With your help we will fix all this! ¬†(Video music; ‚ÄėWind‚Äô by Shayla)

For girls like Ari, who spent 7 years from shelter-to-shelter in NYC.

Converting our practice studio into a home we moved Ari and family in for three months after they jumped through flames to safety from their burning  apartment. After almost flunking eighth grade, Ari is chosen as 1-of-3 top students from Blake High School to attend camp for highly gifted kids.

Like Ariel

We make phone¬†calls;¬†‚Äėassault with a deadly weapon‚Äô charges were¬†dropped.¬†She was abandoned by her mom and¬†raised by her grandparents a street over from the¬†drug dealers.¬†Utilities were¬†cut-off in the dead of winter, and they cooked¬†hotdogs over a fire in the backyard from sticks fallen from the trees. Now,¬†Ariel to attend¬†college in Alabama this year.¬†

 

 

-9 of 20 of the original girls in college:   Crushing national averages!

-Scholarships for two-year degree:   Full tuition and books, with a food & transportation allowance, at a technical college.

-University president vows:  To keep dorm open year-round so the girls aren’t sleeping on a park bench in the cold over winter break.
