It’s not every day that a really special person does something truly momentous. Something so gutsy and so full of potential that the courage it took to do it seeps into the hearts of others. A project that’s so bloody cool that other talented and special people are drawn to it, as if by a magnet. It’s just magic.
That’s why I’m so excited to share this with you today: The lovely Dominique Forest, singer-songwriter from Ottawa, is releasing her very first CD… Finally!
I first met Dominique a few years ago, while taking a walk in my neighbourhood with some friends and suddenly hearing a voice that can easily be compared to honey. Naturally, we followed our ears and have not looked back since. We now make it a point not to miss any of Dominique’s shows. She embodies warmth, sultriness and soul every time she performs and watching her is a real treat. Being her friend isn’t half bad either.
Can you help?
Her debut album, C’est à moi (It’s up to me) is in its final stages of production. In order to offset some of the costs of production, but also to help get her music to as many ears as possible, she has started an Indiegogo campaign. I would be so personally grateful to you if you could give her a hand. Any contribution, small or large, would be appreciated and would help support a local artist who has true star power. She has put together some really generous perks that you can check out here. The campaign ends on January 4, so please consider giving the gift of philanthropy for the Holidays.
And speaking of gifts, you can receive tickets to her debut album release concert (which will take place on January 24 at the NAC) as a perk to contributing to the Indiegogo campaign, but you can also purchase them at the box office. (I’ll update you as soon as they are available) Don't forget that you can also buy her CD, which she is pre-selling now.
If a monetary contribution isn’t possible, please consider telling others about the campaign by forwarding this email to your contacts. If you would like to participate otherwise, please let me know and I’ll pass on the message.
So with that, I say thank you sincerely for taking the time to read my (lengthy) note and thank you for your steadfast support.
PS: Oh, and guess what. ÀPropos Productions will match the highest contribution made (up to CAD $300.00) by anyone who:
- Contributes before December 27th
- Writes to email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org to let me know the date and value of the contribution
