Jumping To Heal

Jumping To Heal

On August 22, rape survivor and advocate Natasha Repass will bravely take to the skies as part of her “Chute to Heal” fundraiser for Angel Band Project. Six years ago, Natasha was beaten and raped at knife point by a stranger while she was walking home from work. She decided thereafter to commemorate the day that she was attacked — August 22, 2008 — by providing acts of kindness instead of remembering that horrific night and dwelling on it. As she said, “Helping others was healing for me.” She had to endure two trials to finally see her attacker brought to justice. “After going through two trials myself, I was able to help give support and guidance to those getting ready to go through their trials. I wanted to do something to take back my day.” Last year, Natasha created over 200 flowers out of buttons and attached inspirational quotes to them. She spent the day passing them out to people in New York City who “looked like they needed a little extra kindness. Or to people who I saw do a random act of kindness.” This year, she will continue her good will by skydiving along with a group of friends and supporters in Lebanon, Maine. On August 22, they will gather together to raise funds for the Angel Band Project. You can donate to her fundraiser here! http://proxy.bellstrike.com/members/rachel-ebeling/chute-to-heal IF YOU EXPERIENCE PROBLEMS WITH YOUR CHECKOUT PROCESS AND ARE HAVING TROUBLE DONATING ONLINE, PLEASE EMAIL US AT: RACHEL.EBELING@ANGELBANDPROJECT.ORG.

Performance At The Neptune

It’s been nearly a week since Jennifer Hopper, took the stage at The Neptune Theatre in Seattle, yet I am still buzzing from the concert. I’m sure the four hundred plus people in attendance would agree with me that it was the kind of night that just sticks with you. Adding to the magic was the inclusion of two-time Tony Award winner, Norbert Leo Butz. Yet again, Norbert gave of his amazing talent and vocal range to get us both boogie-ing down with his rendition of Otis Redding’s Try a Little Tenderness to his “please-pass-the-kleenex” rendition of Patti Griffin’s Goodbye on the piano. Then there’s the band itself. Led by the fabulous, and now Tony-nominated, Michael Moritz. Michael plays the piano like he’s the love child of Elton John and Professor Longhair, but with the voice and suave style of Harry Connick, Jr. Last, but by no means least, is Jennifer Hopper. It’s hard to describe the sheer beauty of her voice. Perhaps our special surprise guest, Brandi Carlile, said it best. As she joined Jennifer for a song onstage, Brandi said “Jenny, all these singers and artists you’ve been singing tonight and talking about…they all have one thing in common with me. And that is, you could sing any one of us under the table.” Brandi then hit the first few chords of Calling all Angels as the crowd exploded into applause. Suffice to say you, could hear a pin drop in that room, bar the hoots and hollers as Jennifer and Brandi’s voices wove together like an antique quilt. It sounded raw and exquisite at the same...
