Tomorrow marks the deadline for submitting the paperwork to my record label and distributor to ensure a slot in the release catalogs that retailers like iTunes, Amazon and others use to promote the holiday season.

I’m planning to pull the trigger and submit the paperwork with the faith that the funds will come in to make this CD a reality – will you help me?

ITHS - IGG Page Assets-34-768X768As of today, I am over 50% of the way through the campaign, and thanks to the help of friends and fans like you, I’ve raised $4600, which is 23% of the goal. I still have 2 weeks to go, but frankly, I am behind when it comes to the funding I need to make this project a reality, and I need your support.

Please take a few moments to visit http://holidayspiritcd.com, choose the incentive package that makes you smile, and make a donation using your Credit Card or PayPal – it’s secure and simple. Let’s see if we can get to 25% funded – $5000 – before I submit the paperwork!

This project is important to me personally because there just isn’t a lot of this type of music being made today.  Sure, there are always lots of holiday CDs coming out, but they’re covering the same 10-20 songs that every other CD covers.  What I’m doing with the amazing Kelly Park Big Band is focusing on the music that is closest to my heart – songs from the Golden Age of holiday music, as well as contemporary tunes written in the same classic style. I can guarantee that there will be songs on this CD that you’ve never heard before, let alone grown tired of hearing year after year.

I need your help, and I’m asking that you not wait until the end of the campaign to join the team.

And again – if this isn’t a good time for you to make a financial contribution, please share this message and the campaign link with your contacts who may like this kind of music. Everything and anything you can do – even just a reply letting me know you’re with me in spirit – is appreciated more than you know.
