I am raising money to record my song "Claveles De Pasión" which is meant to encourage and raise the spirits of the Venezuelan people in their struggle. Estoy recaudando fondos para grabar esta canción para Venezuela.
Claveles De Pasion, Brighter Day, Tu Voz Es Tu Voto, and the upcoming Por Encima De Todo are really several versions of the same song. This song is more of an anthem than a pop song. The arrangement is mellow, but the message is strong.
Since apparently I have a lot to say and very little money to do it with - I figured this was the best way to do it. I can use one instrumental track and record different lyrics and background voices for different themes.
Claveles De Pasion - the one I am now raising money to record - is meant to support and encourage the Venezuelan people who are striving very hard to find a better way. The lyrics use references to the Venezuelan national anthem and the very Venezuelan song "Alma Llanera" . You can read the lyrics on this page. The tune will be the same as the Spanish verse of the "Tu Voz Es Tu Voto" video.
Brighter Day was the original song in English. It is a very positive spiritual anthem. I am hoping it will be discovered and played by other singers and performers. In order to do this I need to have a lead sheet made.
How your donations will be used:
Paying for musicians, studio time and engineers for recording of "Clavels de Pasion" and "Por Encima De Todo"
Making some CD's and distributing them. As soon as I get any CD's made I will put them on this page as a thank you for your donations.
After I get "Claveles" recorded I want to have lead sheets and choral arrangements made for Brighter day and Por Encima De Todo. I need 2 lead sheets because the English and Spanish choruses are different. By having lead sheets I am hoping other singers will be able to perform the songs in their own style.
I don't believe in asking artists to "help me" without paying them - so that is why I need your help. So far I have used only my own money, but now I need some support from those who like my songs. Thank you.
